Hi,

I have just started playing around trying to record some guitar with my laptop and audacity, and i get this weird problem, the sound is fine if I play really slow stuff, but if i am playing some fast metal, after about 5 seconds the quality starts declining rapidly then kinda sounds like underwater. If i stop for a few seconds then start again it will be fine, but if im playing constantly yeah it will get progressively worse quality.

Why is this?

Thanks

Man, never touch Audacity if you're seriously doing something.

If you're using the on board laptop mic, some laptop mics have a noise gate type deal that will turn on to try and clear up sound for video chatting and what not, it's a possibility that it's turning on thinking you're getting a lot of background noise.
