Hi there - thanks for the reply!
So I’ve played around with reducing the gain via alsamixer and the distortion persists but only for sound coming out of snips on errors. I’ve also played a few other files and checked audio from webpages and they’re fine, so it doesn’t seem like a problem with my setup (though I’m happy to be corrected!). What was the issue previously? If it’s been fixed is there an update I should be able to apply?
Not sure if it’s significant that I’m using a USB headset for both input (mic) and output (headphones)
If anyone has any suggestion, please do chime in - I’d REALLY like this to hang together since snips seems to fit perfectly with what I’m, looking for (particularly the n-device processing)…
