One thing to check if you have tried all and its not that ---- Did you run anything else audio related on the DAW? The reasoning is - some programs (usually web-y crap ) re-configure the system audio settings to suit themselves and others (DAW) just use those settings and only change settings when t...

In my experience - otherwise good but crackly sound happens when you don't setup and master and slave for the word clock. NOTE: this is different from setting them to matching frequencies Normally you would set the Apogee to be master (since its Apogee) and the DAW to sync to the Apogee wordclock Mo...

ditto on what everyone said so far with emphasis on 1) use expression controls for MIDI instruments - that's what they are there for - newer (more expensive) samples/samplers can control playing technique to a very fine degree - pick from a wide range of samples to create some variation in sound - t...

In my case I tried to contribute as little as possible musically I was mostly "computer monkey" if you will - just trying to get the best out of the DAW/MIDI/synth rig I do my own music but I think my biggest selling point was that I was neither a threat nor judge (musically speaking that is). My bi...

That's how i started moving from hobby to paid music - I used to do quick MIDI sketches of peoples ideas - I wouldn't call it studio work - but they could afford for me to work with them while it was in the "try this - try that" stage - once the idea was fleshed out with synths they would have somet...

some things to note both technologies (magnetic and ssd) have geometries that are so small they are both plagued with inherently unreliable material sections (can you say quantum effect of electrons lining up in single file) but that's only the material section - the DEVICEs are designed to overcome...

+1 for the EMU manuals
those guys invented the sampling tech used by almost everyone today and didn't patent it.
Those early manuals are also good at relating the tech to music and also explain why most samplers sound like crap if you don't set them up correctly

highly recommended

I feel you I have a bunch of legacy equipment which is getting less and less support MIDI-wise. Fortunately the newer "workstations" can act as masters to the older equipment but I worry about the future - I am not a bleeding edge person and as long as what i have works then it good enough. SO i don...

I only mention this long shot because you seem to have tried everything else
It could be just interference from the screen - older larger monitor screens and unshielded speakers used to make this kind of noise

you can try shielding speakers and increasing distance between screen and speaker

if you are going to hack digital synths - why get some extra hardware? almost anything you can do with that box you can do with "programming" the controls of a vsti or if you want more hacking - code up a vsti yourself plus there are also block level synth generators for vsti's. if you want to learn...

sorry i chime in AFTER you bought the TASCAM i was going thru the same decision process and decided against the Tascam. Primarily because it is still windows based and the new version did not support all VST like old one. So I thought I would be going thru the same generation crap as a PC anyway - w...
