Wow, wireless adapters can cause problems like that? I'll try disabling mine and see if that helps at all.
Thanks!

As can pretty much any other device in there, if it has an errant driver. The tests I mentioned previously would tell us if this is indeed the case, rather than you spending your time turning stuff on and off blindly.

I'm recording in 44.1khz and that seems to have alleviated the noise I was getting. Thank you all for your help! Also, I am now using the Focusrite plugin, and I did find out how to set it up as an output device as well as an input device. So, that takes care of pretty much all of my problems now!

Happy recording!
