While I'm recording using SF5, the music sounds fine. But when I play it back, the entire file is distorted by a constant farting noise. Can anyone help me?

Is there a chance that you are recording at too high of a volume? The recording level meters should not show any red when peaking ~ keep them in the yellow, I suggest not over -6db on peaks. You can re-set (normalize) the volume later for whatever you want after the recording is made.

The distortion sound you describe is unique. I've never heard this as a result of too high a level when recording. It *may* indicate some other cause of your distortion. If so, I've not a clue.

Thanks for your input. I did keep the recording level meters in the yellow. Last week everything was fine, but now everything I recording sounds horrible when I playback. Please let me know if you come across anything like this. Thanks.

Have you tried the directx version of "Beano"?

Sorry I couldn't resist.
