I am using MacOS 10.13.3 and have connected a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB. I am trying to record from Vinyl and I get very distorted sound. I have downloaded the proper software for the Saffire from the Focusrite website. I used to use a windows 7 machine which worked fine.

I think I am getting stuttering on my recordings.

Thank you Bill. I have tried these options and nothing has changed.
In fact, I have now bought the albums, (from iTunes) that I was trying to record.
Frustrating as I was really impressed with Audacity when I used it on a windows machine.
Thanks again.
