have a weird issue

using a beyer stick mic, xlr to usb into macbook pro for vo

when i start up fce and record to timeline with vo tool its fine for first 2 takes or so but then
after that when i play back new recordings its distorted and gravelly and hissy
and useless

if i quit fce then restart it goes back to normal and voice is ok for 2 - 3 takes until the issue repeats

i have tried same on a sony clip mic same happens so it's not the mic..

batts are fresh, tried 2 different usb sockets ( 1 on laptop, 1 on the 24inch monitor attached)
same occurs

all I haven't changed is the lead..

but then how come it works the first couple of times like clockwork?

i am mystified

It sounds like one of the units in your chain is defective. Things like that can be tough to track down.
