I have had this firepod for about 1 year now and now I have two problems with it. Problem one is that the speakers stopped working one day (something with the cubase settings messed this up) and now I do not know how to put them on again. Even the headphone jack won't let me listen to the songs anymore. I know the speakers work I tested them out on the radio. Problem two is that I get all of these cracks and pops whenever I record and I have not found any solution and it sucks because when I try to put out a cd I will hear all these popping and cracking noises because I can't fix it. I need help!!
