1st Gen Focusrite 2i2 on Cubase 6 distortion

So I’m going mad trying to figure out why my audio output is distorting like crazy when I change my device output to my focusrite. I’ve changed the device output and Bus set up like it says on the website. It’s fine out my Mac speakers and headphone jack. It’s definitely not fine when i switch to my focusrite. It’s so distorted i have to put the volume right down. Anyone else had this issue?
