You're only using analog audio connections? No ADAT, SPDIF or else digital?

the problem persists

I have taken out the 2 pci cards
I have also removed the io plates

I want to see if the distortion is something that comes from the plates IO

I have to check also if I exchange plates pulsor2(rca) put in 14dsp card... and 14dsp card XLR plate to be put on pulsar 2 card.
something occurs...

I know it is a lot of work, but you should probably install the card in a completely different system, and see if it works there. Then exchange elements, one by one, with another machine, untill you find what is going on. It could be so many things... a RAM going bad for instance, I don't know. I think the best is to separate all elements and try them all untill you find which is the problematic one.

how is the ground on the computer case?
have you checked the cables and monitoring system?
is the distortion visible in the sequencer?
power supply going bad?

Yes it is visible in stm mixer.
The ground as it always was. What could have happened?
The mobo audio realtek works fine

the realtek wouldn't need to be grounded properly.

i'd test the power supply.

Had that a very long time ago. Try and refresh the drivers. Maybe they're corrupt.

I THINK I FIXED IT!!!

It was mobo PSU earth problem. This PSU I Have does not have an earth cable seperate from the plugs.
I unplugged and plugged again the PSU mobo plugs and Distortion disappeared..

FUCK ME.... CREAMWARE 2004 CARDS FUCKING STILL WORK PERFECTLY!!!! :cry:
THANKS GUYS
