When I record, the quality drops.

Recommended Posts

When I record with anything, the quality drops from either 16-bit to 8-bit, or from 41000khz to 22100khz.

Do you have any idea why? I'm using a Crative Labs Sound Blaster 24-bit.

I can be using Total Recorder, Cakewalk Plasma, Winamp, or Audicity to record or play, and it always goes to that of less quality. They're not cracks or warez.

And I play them raw without encoding anything. I set the quality to 48,000khz, but it doesn't sound anything like it.

That might be because you set your hardware to play at 44000. Audio that isn't synced often sounds like its encoded at a lower quality.

Are you recording through your line-in jack or your microphone jack? lol.

Hehe, no, I'm not. I'm using a driver that's with Total Recorder, specificly made to record anything that you can hear on your speakers. I guess I'll reinstall my drivers.

there's your problem. not only should be using the manufacturer's drivers, but you're probably recording digital feedback as well.
