Bad sound (garbled) when "Monitor" activated

Getting garbled sound when “monitor” is activated to record from PC. Actual recording sounds the same . Audio Settings are … Host - WASAPI…Playback - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) … Recording Device - (Realtek High Definition Audio) (loopback). For “Playback”, I get no other option but for “Recording” my 2nd option is- Stereo Mix (Realtek High Definition Audio).
Any ideas to solve this would be appreciated ! Audacity has always worked well for me to date … thks.

Yes, you have to disable monitoring (Software Playthrough) because Loopback or Stereo Mix is recording whatever is coming out of the soundcard ant that creates an internal feedback loop.

But of course, you can still hear (monitor) whatever is coming out.
