Distortion sounds from audio in protools Data Storage

Distortion sounds from audio in protools


So I have everything setup with my new KRKs, balanced cables going into my Focusrite 24, and using PT 9.0.5.

The issue I have now is when I try to play sessions I had from before, which were set to 48/24, I get a lot of distortion. My first thought was that the sample rates weren't the same, but the focusrite is set to 48khz.

It works fine with newer files at 96khz. I have my settings at:

3cpu (of 4), 65%, and 1024/512 samples. Rest is default.

I have tried with HD external on USB and focusrite on FW, as well as firewire HD (FW800) from mac then next in chain is the Focusrite (FW400).

I have a MPB 15in, external G-DRIVE 2TB.

I updated the mixcontrol to 2.4, and downloaded the RTAS for the focusrite.

What can be causing this?

On top of that, I try to press play in PT at times and the play and stop buttons flash then nothing happens. Some have said its the samples (512/1024 etc) and ive tried changing to no avail.

Any help would be apprecoated

will the session play using the internal audio output?

What driver are you using under playback engine?

Can you playback itunes etc using your focusrite?

Itunes works great through the focusrite. As for the driver, it is saffire as the playback engine. I have not tried the internal audio, but before i updated the driver, whenever i switched to 48 or 44.1, i would get noise, with one of them (i forget which one) being a lower freq noise...but that went away when i updated to 2.4
