Hi, can you supply lots of details, your soundchip/card, apps used, quality settings, codecs used, and
any of those that are different from your previous install. It may be as simple as sample rates not being the same
between the output stream and the capture, or the beginning of an epic saga. The quality and compatibilty of
audio player apps, audio capture apps, and codec implementations vary wildly in even the best of times.
Most audacity linux betas are better, but I don't like this newest one, I noticed last night playback has a large
lag before beginning, never a good sign, and the first in many years of audacity versions! If you can uninstall it, and find an rpm for
audacity-1.3.10-1pclos2010.i586.rpm or similar, or a 1.3.9 pclos version, it might be worth the effort.
