Ableton, distortion with Native instruments plugins?

When using NI sounds e.g. Kontakt, Maschine2, Komplete Kontrol as a stand alone products, they sound great! But when I use them with Ableton as a plugin there is loads of noise and distortion, popping, clicking, banging?

I am using the same hardware in both scenarios.

PC with icore 7 gen. Intel/MB gigabyte Z390 UD.

MS windows10/64.

Ableton 11.

Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 Gen.2 for headphones

Anyone got any ideas please?

    You can absolutely install things on whichever drive in 99.9% of cases. C: vs D: doesn't really matter, and has nothing to do with this issue.

    You should have ASIO selected!

    You shouldn't have installed or reinstalled anything, just set audio in Ableton to ASIO... You absolutely to NOT need to reformat!

    yes it was both ASIO and latency by having plugins on different drives, Now selected ASio and put plugins on the O/S active C:\ drive (where the apps. are located!), made a big difference to the sound!

    Many thanks mate for your help!

    much appreciated, take care!
