in ableton i had a similar problem until i changed the audio driver. if you go in to options>preferences>audio tab make sure the first two boxes have ASIO and ASIO UX2 selected. this is the best quality setting according to the ableton tutorial. Other than that maybe you have a bad usb or other connection.
Its got 4gs of DDR3 which is the same amount in the previous pc just different brands.
its a low end gaming pc thats half the reason i bought it, the other half being recording. lol
I just checked my headset i was using (its plugged into the ux2) and a few other headsets and speakers just to make sure its not a bad headset and it still persists.
I also reinstalled all drivers and software with no change. Ill go check the cpu usage and ram usage settings cuz i think they got changed, but its a pretty darn good laptop so it shouldnt be a problem.
Make sure to install Line 6 Monkey as well as the drivers for your operating system before trying to connect the POD. They are both available for free download from our software page below:
After successfully installing Line 6 Monkey and the drivers please try removing any additional unnecessary USB and firmware devices from your computer when troubleshooting this issue. Make sure to connect it directly to a USB port and not a USB hub, extension, or keyboard of any kind, preferably connect it to a USB port on the rear of computer. Try using additional USB cables and every USB port available.
Launch Line 6 Monkey and apply any updates that are available.
