Hi Robert,
 
As you saw my reply to Larry, that is exactly what I did. Now I also have the physics explanation.
 
Thanks,

Hi Bob,

If you have software play through on you will not be able to record. If
you are usually set up to listen through Audacity as you record,
Audacity sends its output to the stereo mix a very short time after it
receives it. This means you have effectively set up a loop where
audacity is sending the audio stream back to itself, and mixing it with
the incoming stream. This (according to some really rusty neurons left
over from physics days) should give you a horrible beating sound.

Try using your preferences to set play through off.

Regards
