Static in playback

When I Play a wav file in ardour I get a lot of static as long as the audio
is playing. What’s up, anyone know?

Oh, BTW version 2.5


you almost certainly do not have JACK set up correctly. this is a huge topic, and you should use google to investigate it. there is no single source of information for this - a lot depends on your linux distribution and your hardware. just like on windows, ironically enough.
