Just wondered if anyone has experienced this little querk?
All was well, but my captivate has just started to do this today,
and it's somewhat annoying and causing me unneccessary re-work.
Problem is this:
I am recording narration onto a captivate project which is
derived from a converted powerpoint presentation (2003, backward
converted to 2003 to inport into Captivate 3).
When I set my sound levels and record for the first time on a
slide it plays back fine, no hissing or quality issues. However,
now imagaine I edit the recording and need to insert a newly
recorded sentence into this prior recording. BINGO... and here is
the issue, when I do this the recording plays back really noisey at
this newly inserted piece and the quality is awfull, even though
all the equiptment and my voice hasn't changed. I have even tried
recalibrating the input before doing an insert and it has made no
Curiously, if i then add a blank slide to the project and
record the new sentences to insert in there and then Import that
audio into the preferred slide, it plays back fine. I have no idea
why it is doing this and wondered if anyone else has experienced
this and if I can do something to fix this issue. It makes eding
the audio, hard work and as it was ok before, I am unsure why this
has changed now??

I experienced similar the other day - I think somehow the
original sound can
be compressed a second time under certain circumstances,
causing the bad
sound quality. I didn't manage to pin down the exact steps
that caused my
sound problem, but it was something similar to what you
describe. I think
you'll have to stick with your workaround for now.
