whenever i use a mic to mic my amp or plug my guitar direct into the computer, using any software from audacity and basic sound recorder, it records my guitar well for like the first 3 seconds and then it goes into this weird wavy techno sounding thing and ive no clue on how to fix this, does anyone else have this problem? can it just be my audio card?
I don't ask for much
Truth be told I'll settle for
A life less frightening, a life less frightening
I think I've heard about this in audacity or something around this section of the form not too long ago.

try doing a search and/or check the audacity stickey

I dont think its the sound card but it could be the problem...
