Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 - Crackle!!!

I have a new macbook pro that i'm trying to connect a focusrite scarlett 6i6 to, for use w/ Garage Band. When i plug it all in my mic, keyboard, guitar sound great for 2 mins or so, then the sounds starts to crackle, and eventually (over a few mins), the sound gives out completely. I have to restart the focusrite scarlett 6i6, then it'll work again, but just starts to crackle, crackle, crackle!!! ..and i get anxiety.....

    I contacted Focusrite for faster drivers on my 18i8 which wasn't having any crackling issues. I've been using a newer 'beta' version for the last 6 months that's not openly posted on their website. You might give them a call in El Segundo, CA and get the link to the newer 'beta' driver for your 6i6... maybe it will fix the crackling and make your box a bit faster too. Good Luck!
