Weird noised when trying to increase speed

hello there finally got my old Maxnc-10 running on a 3.0 shield . I set teh current for 1 amp on the A4988 drivers . am running in full step mode ( no jumpers) when I try to increase the speed , or steps , the steppers make a noise like a video game (pac-man type) do I have the current set too low ?...
