pro tools popping noise in bounced file

I'm starting to get clicking and popping noises in the actual recording now before it wouldnt do this but now it is. Im using an M-Audio interface and pro tools 9 what i use for the clean guitar is the pod x3 i checked the guitar cables by themselves they seem to be fine but when i hit record and start playing the popping comes up on the audio. heres a lil instrumental i was trying to do but the clicking and popping is so evident it makes me very annoyed.

i always hear in forums to always record in the low buffer size the lowest i go is 258 the lowest one is i think in the 100s area i might try that out and if i still get the popping noise im going to go insane.

Higher buffer sizes are less prone to pops and clicks, so I'd check 512 or 1024. The lower the buffer size, the more stress for your audio interface and computer.

It sounds like the session is too big to be recording at such low buffer sizes and your computer just can't handle it. What I would do is a bounce of the current session, start a new session, import the bounce, set a low buffer size, then record. After you record, import your vox track into the big session and mix from there.

Plug-ins that eat up alot of memory will cause these clicks and pops during recording. If your comp can't handle it, it's best to make them inactive during recording.

Under the set-up menu playback engine you have a check box for "Ignore Errors during Playback/Record. Make sure the box is unchecked.
