So i have having problems with my alesis i/o unit. I spoke to someone about it and said i was recording electro acoustic directly into it to the pc and there was the problem...that i need a di box. But even when i am just playing back tracks at a moderate volume i get high levels of distortion, so have to reload the program and have to save constantly. The distortion is like microphonic high pitched crackly etc.

How can i sort this? Im using reaper, truepianos, alesis i/o2, superior drummer, 3.0ghz quadcore machine 4gb ram.
probably you recorded it with too much gain. reduce it
