About a week a go my X3 Live started picking up some weird looping cracking static sounding interference when recording. It only happens when I record enable a track in Logic or record. When playing with headphones on its fine and it doesn't happen.


I have read a few posts about ground loop interference, but that is usually something to do with it being run through a laptop. I'm using a MacMini.


My set up is as follows:


X3 Live into a MacMini using Logic Pro via USB. 


I've tried using different USB ports, cables. Turning of speakers, printer, even my display to try and figure out what is happening. It all seems to be down to the USB though.


Any ideas? As I love my X3 and it's great for home recording, I'd like to keep using it.

Sounds like it could be a USB issue.


First run Monkey to make sure everything is current, if that doesn't help check out this doc.
