Very Bad Distortion In FL Studio

First of all I wasnt very sure which thread to put this in, so if its in wrong area I apologize in advance. Anyway my issue is I keep getting some distortion in FL Studio when running Song Mode on my current project.

I can definately tell you its not my audio drivers as I have the latest one (or anything hardware related) and I have set my buffer as high as 1000 sample (18+ms), so any of the "typical" suggestions were already taken care of.

Problem far as I know is Omnisphere + FL Studio at the moment = some audio problems. The parts where my basslines and a couple of other synths start playing is where the distortion comes. Also I have bounced this project between FL Studio and Ableton, and even a friend let me try his Cubase so I managed to put the project in that DAW as well. Sadly FL Studio is the only one that can't seem to handle Omnisphere.

I figure those 2 just don't get along now but I thought i'd bring this to your attention to see if you guys could look into it. I've had an issue like this a few years back with the Korg Legacy Collection, where as certain patches were distorted in FL Studio but played perfectly in other DAWS, and they were Demo Versions at that. Anything you guys can do to help i'd appreciate it, and also the fact that the exact same patches in Omnisphere sounds perfect in other DAWS but distorts in only FL Studio.........eliminates the idea of anybody saying "Well it's Omnisphere not FL"

Other than that, everything has been running smoothly (now on version 9.7) so hopefully we can get this settled, as I really would like to make FL my primary DAW so I can start testifying to other people that FL Studio has evolved and is continuing to evolve. The only reason I even used Ableton was because of my Korg Legacy I mentioned earlier until I switched to Omnisphere. So help me come home!!!

And much much much thanks for all your hard work guys!!

P.S. Incase somebody thinks its an issue with Computer specs......
