I downloaded 1.2.4 yesterday and basically, like the software for my recording of guitar and voice with my audiotechnica ATR20 mic.  I tried  to use your forum, but could not find how to send my post.  My problem is---static when I try to record.  Before I begin, and throughout the recording, I hear background static.  I looked at the faqs and other posts, but did not see the answer.  I have 1 year old computer with windows xp and plenty of memory... any ideas? 
Thanks,
