Hey there guys, brand new here on the forum! 

I just picked up a Pod HD Pro a few days ago and it's my first rack modeling system, really excited to get deep into all it has to offer! I'm pretty familiar with recording and audio troubleshooting but I've noticed I'm having some weird playback issues.

I'm running the HD Pro via USB directly to the computer with 1/4 unbalanced outs to connect to my monitors. I don't seem to have any trouble with the signal going in while playing or recording but when I am playing things back through the monitors I notice some skipping is occurring, sometimes subtle, sometimes quite obviously. 

Previously I was running an M-Audio Fast Track Pro interface and using the outputs on there for my speakers. I tried using the same 1/4 unbalanced cables and connecting my monitors through that again and I noticed no skipping. 

I also have the most updated firmware and drivers installed for the HD Pro so I'm not sure where the problem could lie. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Make sure you have selected the POD ASIO drivers within your DAW.

 

Also make sure you have the POD set to the same sample rate and bit rate as your DAW.

 

You don't mention your computer type (Mac/PC) or your DAW: this might be useful information.

Sorry about that, I'm running Windows 7 and using REAPER as my DAW. Although I'm not sure it should mater about which DAW I'm using as I am also experiencing the skipping/crackling sort of sound with other applications as well as online (Media Player, iTunes, Youtube, Soundcloud, ect.) And as I mentioned there seems to be no problem with the cables because they work fine with my M-Audio. 

 

My only thoughts are that I overlooked some small detail somewhere, I could try the balanced outputs, or (God forbid) there's something faulty with the hadware? Any other ideas?

i would recommend googling slimdrivers and run that... it will update some behind the scenes usb drivers....

if that doesn't help try some different usb ports... some are linked to internal hubs, and some usb 3.0 ports don't seem to work real well with usb 2.0 devices.

Are your monitor inputs really 1/4" unbalanced?

 

Did you select the ASIO driver in Reaper?

 

It's also worth trying another USB cable just in case.

I haven't even checked out slimdrivers yet (definitely will after this post though) but I switched the USB ports around and boom, problem solved. When I got my rack gear I revamped the studio and wiring a bit and didn't even think about the fact that I switched the USB ports around to make room - I can't believe I overlooked something as simple as that lol.

Thanks very much for the help!

I seem to be having the same issue, but even after i switched usb ports on my pc it still has this skipping, even videos will pause for a moment. the second i switch to another audio device its perfectly fine.

Eidolon93, I have also been having this same problem. It was working in my last location, but when I moved to my new apartment it started doing this. I'm positive it wasn't damaged in the move because I had it with me the whole time. I updated the drivers and got it to start working, but after my computer restarted a few times it started skipping with playback again. I have not yet been able to remedy the issue.
