Hello, I am having mic problems; when I pot up the mic, it is distorted and when recorded in encoder, the sound is not there, just dead air. Also when I pot the mic, the music does lower as expected buy like the mic, the sound is badly distorted.

Does anyone know how to correct this?

For starters, you REALLY should upgrade to SAM 4.3.6. All legitimate SAM customers can do so by clicking CLIENTS in the upper right corner of this page. 4.2.2 has some bugs in it that you'll want fixed.

Check the WINDOWS MIXER and make sure your MIC input isn't jacked way up.

Oh, and when I record with the encoder again the music comes out great, soft and low but sounds good until I pot up the mic. The sound gets garbeled and you can't hear my voice at all. Hope this info helps.
