Sound not good

So, at first I had no issues and everything ran smooth. Suddenly every time I load an instrument the sound quality is horrible. I have updated drivers for my interface (Scarlett 2I2), keyboard drivers and nothing any better. The loaded instrument sounds almost like skipping or static, its hard to explain. I am running on Windows 11. Any help would be great>

    Thanks everyone for your help, it was the ASIO4ALL. I uninstalled it and ran through the Focusrite and it worked perfectly. If you could not tell I am completely new to all this. Much appreciated.

    What software are you using to play? Whatever it is, check that you're using ASIO drivers and that you don't have the buffer size set too low.

    Sorry, I am using the MK2 S49, Scarlett 2i2, using ASIO4ALL with a buffer of 512. It doesn't matter if I am running the stand alone Komplete Kontrol, my DAW (pro tools) I get a very glitchy sound. I also use UVI Falcon and i get the same issue. If I turn off the keyboard and use with virtual keyboard I do not get the glitch. It has never done this before, it literally just happened a couple of days ago and I cant get rid of it.

    Why on earth are you using ASIO4ALL?

    You have a Scarlett 2i2 - a professional audio interface with its own dedicated ASIO driver, which is what you should be using.

    I agree with @PK The DJ - ASIO4ALL really is a last resort as it's pretty much a wrapper for the standard windows audio drivers. Give it a try with the proper drivers from Focusrite and that should fix your problem.
