Click recording onto tracks

I am having a problem where the click is being recorded.

Now before you say it is turned up too loud and being picked up through the headphones; this is not the case.

I have the mics unplugged, however the crystal clear click is still recorded onto the audio track.

I have played around with the “click destinations” however the click will either come through the audio and be recorded or midi and be recorded. Or if I select no destination, then there is no click at all.

Either there is something fundamental which I am missing or there is something amiss.

If anyone has had a similar occurrence and knows of a solution, then I am all ears.

Hi and welcome,

Make sure, Loopback recording is disabled on your Audio Device.
