I have downloaded the latest version of SAM, and have been having massive mic latency problems. I have re-installed, checked drivers etc. etc. It's only milli-seconds, but off-putting when especially when announcing 10CC, which becomes 10CC cc cc ...
I have scoured sources I know and have had many, many suggestions ranging from use different software to using external mixer, a better mic, a new computer and so on!
I like SAM, but need to solve this problem before buying, this is my setup :-
IBM ThinkPad T60 2Mb Dual Core Processor
350Gb HDD (234Gb free, unused)
SAM v4.9.6 (trial)
Yoga Stereo Condenser Mic
Other installed software includes AVG AV, MS Office, iTunes and various utilities like file type converter and Audacity.
I have found a fix, by disabling the mic and sending 'live' output to the .MP3 encoder I can use SAM, but I am ducking 'blind' and have no idea of my voice quality / loudness.
Several peeps have said get a USB Mic, the one that seems to be recommended is a Samson CO1U, which is actually quite old now, but it comes highly recommended ...
What started off as a simple trial and possible new hobby / job is getting increasingly difficult to sort. I don't want to buy SAM and find three months down the line I still have the problem, working 'blind'.
So, ideas please fellow users, has anyone encountered the sam problems, I have searched the web, YouTube, spoken to third-party suppliers and no one really has an answer
HELP .... please, if you have any ideas, no matter how silly, they may just work?
