Crackling sounds

I'm getting crackling noises and I think it's coming from my computer. I've downloaded updated drivers for the computer and downloaded updated driver for my Scarlett 2i4. Can anybody offer any suggestions? Thank you.

    Sounds like you need to research latency and bit rate.   Adjust your latency sample rate lookahead to more.  Too much latency creates popping and crackling.

     

    I dont know if your using firewire or usb from your scarlett but if its firewire , it may be that you need to go into your windows drivers from computer and find drivers already on machine or such and switch legacy driver. Sometimes its more stable or works better than Ti.

    Thanks Happy Tony. I'll try doing the buffer size adjustment although I think it's my computer.
