    When I use the Scarlett 2i2 no issues no pops
    Does anyone have this issue?? What to do..

    Turn your monitors off first. A lot of interfaces and audio devices e.g., mixers cause a pop when turning on/off when connected to live speakers .

    It's basics mate, doesn't matter which interface pops or not, you always turn on/off your audio interface while the speakers are off.

    Yeah, a lot of gear does this.
    I have my speakers connected to a separate power strip with an On/Off switch, it's close to my feet so I just use my toe to turn it off/on lol... It's more practical than reaching behind the speakers. If you're a crafty person you can glue it to the underside of your desk, been meaning to do that for ages...

    I use to have an old Soundcraft mixer which caused a massive thump when switched on and off. The issue was I had all my audio gear connected to a master switch that I designed to switch on/off all the gear with a simple toggle switch on the desk and a relay. I ended up designing a small delay circuit just for the monitors so they switched on about 5 seconds after everything else. Not something everyone has the knowledge to do but the idea was from an old Technics component amp that had a delay inbuilt which would connect the speakers after a few seconds for this same reason.
