    When recording a track and then continuing to play it back to listen to it, the sound of the output becomes terribly distorted and full of feedback although the levels are well below the overload threshold. Is there a setting that controls this?

    The sound of the instrument will sound fine while actually recording the track, but when it is played back it is terribly messed up.
