Getting glitchy tracks while recording

I’m using the recording template for logic. I am trying to record one idea into logic, and then go back, create a duplicate track, turn off input monitoring and lay another track down.
However, I am getting such bad quality on the subsequent tracks. I know something is up, but just can’t isolate the problem. Has anyone into this problem? Or know of a good recording tutorial for this newfangled equipment?
Thanks!
