I've been using Soundbooth with Windows XP, and it's been working fine until recently.
Now, whenever I try to record something and play it back... It's a bit strange, to say the least. I've posted up a video -- please take your time to watch it. It's not very long -- around 20 seconds. In the video, I have recorded myself saying "This is a test. I'm going to say the alphabet. A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z".
I guess, if you don't want to watch it, I'll attempt to describe it. The sound is choppy, and it echoes. When I say "D", "C" resounds in the background.
I know it's not a microphone problem, because I've tried recording with Audacity, and it worked fine. It's just Soundbooth. I'm not sure if I adjusted the settings or anything. I don't know what happened.
Please try and help me. I appreciate it very much.
I don't have a definite answer for you. If I were troubleshooting my own system, I would start by changing the Sync Reference and Card Options settings to see if any combination of those made any difference.
