Default Distorted sound on output

I'm running PT 11 on a Mac OS 10.8.5 with Apollo 8 interface. Lately I'll get the system up and running and push play and I get a scatchy distorted sound.
I;ve restarted, repluged, recheck I/O's and prayed to the god of Avid and I can't find the cause. Ideas ?

The sound appears on all sessions. Happened intermitently but now it's won't resolve itself. Also the sound seems to be in front/on top of the primary audio.

I would check your headphones and/or speaker system.

The sound only occurs on PT. Other sources from the computer play fine and thru TB the Apollo interface i-tunes,CDs, internet. The problem isn't the playback monitoring. This happened a few months ago, but cured it self with a restart after a few minutes.

Bam, I started up my system load a session and the static was there. Opened an earlier saved session and no static on the tracks. I have no explanation for this phenom. BUT if anybody would like to chip in with any hypotheticals, I'd like to hear them.
