HELP with Cubase6-ASIO Driver

I am having issues with the ASIO meter overloading causing clipping and distortion…I’ve noticed the more plugins and inserts I load for each track, the more the problem occurs, so I just wanted to know if the problem should be fixed by buying a different audio interface (right now I’m using a line 6 POD ux2), or if the problem is the computer I’m using (macbook pro 13")…sorry for the silly question but I’m kinda newbie in the world of recording…any tips would be appreciated!

Try increasing the latency in the driver control panel. A new interface would probably not help much, unless the driver for the pod isn’t very good. See if you have the latest version.
