I have been encountering a problem I just can't seem to shake over the past few days. During playback, only that coming from the internet, there's this really annoying distortion over everything coming out of my Focusrite Scarlett 8i6. It happens on multiple sites, but not my DAW or Windows Media Player. I have tried multiple output channels and output sources, and they are all the same (distorted).
The whole signal just kind of seems twisted and off tune, could there be some kind of sample rate mismatch or something, though my DSP mixer is running at 44.1K? I've gone through trying to optimize all my performance options, resetting my DSP settings, and increasing buffer size with no positive results. (Specs in sig.)
Here is a demo of the output coming out of my Focusrite. I used the Loopback channels to record it into Cubase and then converted it into an MP3. Be careful as you can see from the waveform the signal gets really hot toward the end, but the distortion is present in the beginning. http://soundcloud.com/btrailblazer/demo/s-M3MDW
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
