Unhappy Midi Setup - Noise and Crackle

I just went to install a new Keyboard controller - an M-Audio Code 61... Went into preferences, no issues... found the Code61. When I went to use it I added a track and selected the midi channel for the keyboard then assigned a sound and armed record. The Midi signal is being received and I can hear the sound but along with it is a huge amount of noise and crackle. No idea why... I wasn't even recording, just sampling the sound.. Anyway, to check if it was the keyboard, I unplugged it and replaced it with another controller keyboard, changed the midi device to the new one and same exact issue.. Its unusable with the tremendous amount of noise and crackle..
Anyway, to rule things out, I do have another install of Reaper on another computer and when I set things up there and run it, both keyboards work fine.
Are there any set up parameters in Reaper on my one computer that is causing this as an issue? Buffer size, etc?
Its not the computer as I tried the 2 keyboards with another DAW and they both work fine with both computers. It must be something in the settings..
Can someone help?
