Clicking In Captured Audio

Question

When recording audio through a USB microphone, I experience a constant clicking/crackling sound in the playback (it sound like a tiny horse galloping all through the playback). I am using the Record Audio function in Creator 2011 with the most recent updates installed, recording through a Rock Band USB microphone and saving as .wav. I used the same method regularly with Creator 7.5 on my previous system and did not experience this problem.

 

I do not experience this problem when recording through Windows Sound Recorder.

 

I am on a brand-new 64 bit system running Windows 7, with an "ATI high definition audio device" (I'm not very technical, that's what my device manager lists it as) and "ATI high definition audio CODEC" and the USB mic set as the default recording device.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Desk top or laptop? If laptop, have you muted your built in MIC? If desktop, have you checked your Windows audio set up to make sure you are recording properly.

 

What application are you using to do the recording?

Desktop. What about the Windows audio setup would I need to adjust? As mentioned, I have set the USB mic as the default recording device and do not experience the problem when using Windows Sound Recorder. I am using Roxio Creator 2011's "record audio" function.

I have this "Exact" same problem (clicking sounds)when recording with my USB mic. The mic records fine in Win 7 setup but the Roxis Sound Editor records repetative clicks on top of my voice revording or music recording. It only does this when using the New Logitech Mic. I did not see a solution to Nubie's problem. Is there a solution? Thanks

We do ‘Hear’ of this from time to time but no one has ever found a single cause ;)

 

I just played with it and in a short recording, got a click once…

 

I opened my Windows Recording Device Controls:

And set the recording volume and boost higher for the USB Mic…

Tried another and all was fine :)

 

Not a clue why it works :huh:

 

Give it a try!

Thanks for the response Jim.

My Microphone Properties screen does not show a"Boost" option. It only shows the Microphone an I have tried it at various levels with no success. Wonder why I don't have the Boost option? I'm running the PhotoSuit 2011 in Windows 7. Tom

You don't really mean PhotoSuit do you? I assume that you are using Creator 2011 but what application within that suite of programs are you using? There is no record audio per se. Which of these are you uisng?

Tap43 had mentioned Roxio Sound Editor in post #4 ;)

 

I should clarify that my Mic IS NOT USB!

 

I dont think that makes any difference as far as boost that I would assume is driver based :glare:

 

You were looking under the Levels tab? In any case, increase the setting under microphone and make sure you have the latest drivers from the manufacture. (don't rely on MS keeping you up to date :o )

Sorry, I should have said Roxio Sound Editor which came with Roxio Creator 2011.

 

Have you tried updating the driver for your audio chip?

 

What else do you have running while you are recording - auto defrag, e-mail, anti-virus that is continuously scannning every thing put on your hard drive, ?

 

Do you have Windows set to shut off anything after some time - hard drive, monitor, etc? I know that you are using a descktop.
