Card Output Sounds Terrible into Ableton


Hey everyone, 

I need some guidance...

Disclaimer; I'm extremely new to the X32 workflow so keep in mind I'm a total n00b. 

I'm hoping to use the card out to send audio into Ableton to have control over a seperate mixdown for a live stream, then send the Ableton into OBS. 

I was able to configure the USB card to send audio into Ableton but it sounds AWFUL. I'm getting lots of glitches, stutters, pops, weird bleeps and boops, lots of distortion. I suspect I'm doing something wrong becasue I have a 2019 MB Pro with up-spec'd ram, beefier processer, etc., and the X32 is less than 6 months old (purchased brand new).

Any ideas would be very much appreciated...
