did you install or upgrade the plugins from a distro?
The Debian Sarge package for tap-plugins is known to be broken,
producing very similar symptoms as you describe (very distorted
signal, possibly due to some bit-alignment problem).

Try to remove the tap-plugins package from the distro and
build the plugins from source. That should work.
