Windows XP causing strange microphone capture.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've asked somewhere else and i'm tired of typing it again, and again.
But you guys look like a nice community and won't mind if i just paste it

Quote:
I recently installed xp, i installed my most used programs and my drivers. Everything seemed to be going fine and my microphone was working, but then after a while i opened ventrillo and noticed that others could not hear me, so i decided to record a sample of what others were hearing. It sounds very strange and robotic and i have no idea why. The microphone works fine in windows 7 and on another computer with xp. It is a Logitech USB Microphone(just the average rockband mic) and uses the generic usbaudio driver on all of the working and not working systems.

here is a link to a recorded sample

Now i posted this here because the problem is with the software(Windows XP Generic Drivers) and not the hardware.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Get rid of XP. Old News OS and crap. Windows 7 is better. You know that Windows 7 outsold XP just now? Why even bother using XP since they are not rarely updated much anymore and likely a huge target on hackers and spammers too.

I already have windows 7, and would be using it if not for a driver compatibility issue, but that is another problem and is not what i need help with.

just as a side note: other people cannot up and get a new os when ever they feel like it, things cost money.

It's not just vent, it's anything that tries to capture.

Something you have set / installed has probably reverted to recording the 'mic' as 'line-in' where the sounds you hear are being recorded instead of the 'mic' input.

This happens a lot. Not sure how you'll fix it because it's software related to whatever particular sound settings/software is installed.
