Static when recording with Ext Instrument?

Hi, I've got an external synth that I am sending MIDI to and then sending back the audio to the external input on my Macbook Pro (8 GB RAM, Lion, 2.8GHz i7).  I hear digital static occasionally when I press the keyboard keys.  This wasn't happening previously.  I have adjusted my buffer size down to 14 (the lowest it will go) and I still have static.  It seems that the higher I make the buffer size the more static I get.  I tried an external sound card but that did not fix my issue.  Same static.  I created another user account on my mac and logged into that and added the same external instrument and I don't hear the static.  Any advice would be great.

    Hello! Sorry for my English. I had a same problem and pass a many hours to fix it, but a static noise appear again and again. I use the M-Audio Delta 1010LT interface and occasionally find the solution: just activate all inputs and outputs on your audio device in Ableton Audio Settings Dialog, and it doesn'matter to use it all. That's all. Now, my device works correct. I hope, my advice will helps you!
