I received my first proper audio interface yesterday (Audient iD4) along with some Beyerdynamic DT770 pro headphones and really like the build quality and feel of them.
The only issue I'm having is that when I tried the Neural DSP plug in for quiet recording at night, the sound was relatively muffled, with some audible pops and crackling.
This issue isn't present when I'm just listening to music, or watching video, but only appears in the plug in software. So far the noise doesn't occur when using my Kemper either.
Signal is -- Guitar > Mogami 3ft cable > D.I input of Audient iD4 > USB cable to PC running Windows (i5, 16GB DDR3). I don't have monitors plugged in, just the headphones out the headphone output at the front of the interface.
I set the DI gain so that it doesn't clip, but the output seems to be clipping a little bit.
Does anyone have any ideas on why I'm getting the extra noise, and why the tone sounds distant and muffled?
Sorry if this is an obvious question, I just have little to no experience with this.
