help! i'm using my pod xt to record to my pc through USB and it keeps crackling/popping, even on a clean setting and without the guitar even plugged in!
its either the audio card or the wire you are running especially if it is analog
It sounds like you have the latency set a little too low for your computer to handle. Try increasing it a bit.
I had this problem with my pod. Try uninstalling and installing your drivers. That solved mine. But i was told a my local music store that is can also be caused by problems with ram/memory.
