Audiophile USB sounding very distorted

Post by marra » Wed Jun 22, 2011 12:24 pm

Hey!

My Audiophile used to work great. Now though I get this distorted / crackling / bitreduced type of sound that makes it impossible for me to work.

Don't matter whether I use Winamp, a DAW or whatever.

Version 1.0.0.20 (Audiophile_6_0_1_5_10_0_5131.exe) on Windows 7 (MacBook Pro - Bootcamp).

What can I do?

Thanks!

Check if your bitrate settings are correct...

Restart? I get funky degradation on my PC as well, using various interfaces, and a quick ASIO restart usually clears it up. I assume you've tried it without the Audiophile, and there's no crackling with whatever onboard soundcard you have?

Indeed man! A restart doesn't seem to do much.

Make sure that the bitrate is the same in the specific software that can with in the interface and in Ableton Live!

Why not contact M-Audio tech support? since it is not a Live specific issue.
