  1. Audio Recording is Distorted

    I am experiencing bad distortion when recording. At first I thought it was my external hardware, the Presonus Audiobox, but, when I tried recording through the microphone on my Logitech camera, I get the same horrible distortion. This only started recently, maybe the past few weeks. I have recorded previously with my same setup without any problems.

    I reinstalled the Realtech drivers, I disabled all enhancements.... I am not sure what to do.

    recording sound with usb webcam - audio is distorted

    Also - I don't know if this is relevant but the sound of the first couple of notes seems ok, and then the distortion comes in and stays, which suggests the laptop is doing something which affects the sound recorded.
