Distortion on the CD but not ITB

    This has to be a simple solution but I'm stumped.

    My bounced 2 track sounds great at 16/ 44.1 but on the CD some transients are distorting. I've never had this problem before. How can it sound great ITB?
    I'm even lowering my level to -6 and still some subtle clipping is occurring on the CD.

    When I take my Master to my car to listen, its not there.
    Other CD's on my PC sound fine too. What am I doing wrong or what needs to be adjusted?

    What software are you using to make the CD? When you say you take the Master to your car (CD??) it is sounding fine?!

    It sounds great in my car.

    I'm confused. If it sounds good in the car with the CD, then there is no distortion, right? If it is from the CD played through your computer then there may be something wrong with the CD player vs CD type?

    Finally found it. I have a piece of gear inserted into the same IO that shares my CD bus. Gear isn't suppose to effect the insert like this so that piece of gear needs another way to use it or another home. A relief getting it resolved.

    Thanks for chiming in Richard!
