Alright so I have been recording on audacity with my M-Audio Producer USB microphone and I have never had a problem with it. I recently had to reinstall the program and now whenever I try to record the microphone picks up everything and even quiet talking goes off the chart. I tried putting down the input volume but it sounds distorted and clips and that is never good. I tried a different microphone and that microphone does not have this problem. Could it be the program or the actual hardware?
Thanks in advance!
