The only other thing in the Setup>Hardware window is a button "Launch Setup App". Right above it, it says "Hardware controls for this peripheral are handled in it's setup app". Hitting the button opens the UA Console Control Setting.

Looks like the UA driver is in the Apple Window. It's listed as "Universal Audio Apollo". It's the only choice there. No listing for Pro Tools Aggregate.

Hitting that button opens the UA Counsel Settings. I'll need to run out and get a new Firewire Cable.

Just tried a new FW cable. No change. So to this point I've reinstalled all the Apollo drivers, increased the FW Bandwidth, and replaced the cable. Still having the issue. At one point I even played the audio through the mac's internal speaker. Got the same distortion there too.

I get this from time to time on my Macbook Pro. I thought it was a hardware/driver issue until it happened while using the Aggregate Device. The only solution I’ve found to work is to change the buffer settings back and forth from highest to second highest and back to highest. This seems to reset something internally. Its really annoying but ive tried numerous other things with zero success.

I am also experiencing this digital distortion on playback. I just updated to 2018.7.0 and am using OSX 10.12.6. I using a MBPr and using its built-in soundcard. None of the solutions suggested here are working for me. My session has no plugins, automation or edits, I just imported some audio files.

Hi sorry to hear that .

Can you try another interface ? Or at least disconect the UA from the Mac and try internal audio card only ?
