Poor audio quality recording computer playback

I used to have no problem using either Stereo Mix or the Windows WASAPI method, however, now when I try to record computer audio the quality is just very poor. I’m using the same computer I used before I had any problems and I haven’t done any changes to my sound card or anything. This is really getting annoying…

the quality is just very poor.

Can you hear the dogs barking next door? One of the Stereo Mix services records The Whole World including the built-in microphone. Could you be listening to you shuffle your chair while you record?
