Crackling and Distorted sound in ableton projects.

Post by Dejii » Tue Jan 08, 2019 1:41 pm

I've recently come across an issue in ableton, when i try to record i get an abundance of popping sounds and distortion. i tried disconecting and reconnecting my mixer and changing audio settings but no dice. I then go to some of my old projects and turns out ALL of them are completely ruined with this popping, crackling and distortion. So bad you can barely hear the audio. Has anyone come across this issue and solved it?

First off all:
PC/Mac? OS? Specs?
Interface?
Settings?
Changes made lately?

There must have happened something somehow...... Haven't the settings for buffersize been altered somehow, have you checked them?
