Strange sound when playing recorded vocals.


Recommended Posts


I've got a really annoying problem. Don't know what to do, searched for the problem but with no result.

I've had Logic for maybe a year, so I'm pretty new to it.


The problem:

When I record vocals and playing back for the first time, it sounds like it should do. No strange sound or crackling thing.

But after a while.. It always is some crackling kind of sound at some parts.


I discovered the problem when I started using flex-pitch. Immediately the vocal track sounded very strange at the parts where I sing with distortion. It's like laggy/crackling kind of sound. And the stupidest thing is when i undo everything, the annoying sound is still there.


Then i recorded new vocals cause I got frustrated. Then I just left it with no editing. Well.. It sounded great for a while. But even when I didn't touch that vocal track it started sounded weird after a while at the distortion/rasp part of the vocal track.


But when I double press the track and hit "file" and listen there. It has no strange sound or anything. It sound like it should do.

Does anyone know what causes this problem?
