    Audio Recording Issues


    I recently purchased a ASUS G750JX-DB71 laptop, and updated from 8 to 8.1


    I am having one problem, most likely user error.


    When I record either audio such as yotube, or itunes radio with either Sound Recorder, or Audacity. the playback is very "tinny" (low level, poor quality, very little bass) I also have the same problem with the audio on a screen recording program, Bandicam, when recording youtube, or an MPORG.


    I've tried various applications to play the audio/video , with the same result. I'm not recording through the built -in mic, I checked.


    An imported audio file, from my Win 7 desktop sounds fine, and an audio file recorded on the laptop, still sounds "tinny", on the desktop.


    Does anyone have any ideas ? I'm reasonably sure, it's a setting I need to fix.

    There have a few reports of problems with sound in 8.1 and even some recording issues due to drivers needing update. I have a recording studio and see problem posts of needing updated drivers for many recording studio devices. I have a Roland Octa-Capture USB connected recording interface unit and Roland issued an update for 8.1.

    Whether this is your problem? Did it work OK before installing 8.1? If it did, reinstall the ASUS supplied driver for your PC.

    Have you tried recoring something with the built in mic or a line in, to see how that is?

    Thanks for replying!
    Just tried recording my voice with the built in mic... which already never sounds the same, when recorded. As for pre-8.1, had the machine 2 days before it came out, and never tried recording with 8.0. I'll give the built in mic some more attention, to compare sound quality.
