Wheezing sound during processing

I downloaded the latest version of Audacity (2.4.2). Unfortunately there was a problem with the wheezing sound while editing the podcast (track 1). I am using Lexcicon Alpha and Windows 10. The problem is only in Audacity. The coughing gets stronger the longer I listen to the recordings. How to solve this problem?

I managed to fix the problem myself. I changed the Interface: Host: MME instead of WASAPI

Super :slight_smile:
I’m glad you managed to fix it - I had no idea what might be causing a “wheezing” sound. I still have no idea why WASAPI should, or could cause a wheezing sound, but if it is working then that’s what matters :wink:
