Distorted Sound When Playing Back

Post by steverido » Sat Jun 11, 2011 4:46 pm

Hi,

I have arranged my track and have noticed that I get quite bad pops and crackles in places when playing back. I believe that this is because of latency which is set to 250 samples at present. IO was told it is better when mastering to raise this but if I do it plays and then where I got the crackles and pops I now get a high pitched sound. My cpu indicator is running at 32% but this is nothing for my computer as I am running a quad core at 3.4 gig and have 8 gig of memory and plenty of hard drive space. My hard drives are Seagate Momentus XL which are almost as quick as SSD's so I am a bit baffled as to why I am getting this problem.

Thanks in advance.
