I have a ASUS motherboard with integrated VIA VT1708S chipset for audio. By default Windows 7 installs the generic Microsoft driver
, which does not include Stereo Mix. Of course, I installed the correct drivers
. However, I'm getting these strange artifacts. Hear this sample
out. It's not a matter of clipping, I've tried sliding the input/output levels respectively down really much. The artifacts remains. I've also tried disabling all other recording devices except for Stereo Mix. Default device, default communication device, all set accordingly. Nothing beats this nut. Any ideas? I'd be much thankful.
