volume and tone dissappear, amplitube3

ok, so its only just started to happen but ive noticed that when im playing using amplitube 3 the volume seems to go up and down and the tone seems to get hollow aswell, randomly. it sounds asif someone is turning the 'volume' and 'tone' knobs whilst im playing (so to speak).

im using a line6 podx3 as my 'soundcard'.

any thoughts as to what this might be?

thanks

sounds like the preamp is being starved. pay attention to the input level in the software and see if you get decreased input when this phenomenon occurs.

if this is the case then most likely it is the line 6 interface.

well it looks like you could be right, ive been looking at the input level and it does drop.
is there anything i can do to help prevent this?

unfortunately i can't think of anything. it seems like a preamp problem, so that would be a problem with your interface.
