When I try to record using the Stereo Mix, there is a very low rumbling sound that occurs. This occurs even if I take the input volume way down. I can get rid of the rumbling using a High Pass filter or using the ‘100 Hz Rumble’ equalization, but even still the quality of the recording is noticeably lower than the original. My sound card drivers are the latest, and I tried playing with the sampling rate setting on my sound card to no avail. Is it typical for Stereo Mix to lose significant quality or is there something I might be doing wrong, or could it be that my particular sound card happens to be of low quality?
