    ez all
    ive been having problems recording clips of movies and stuff.

    basicly, i have a clip playing on a player, and use soundforge for recording.
    when the clip is playing, everything sounds fine and smooth.
    but when i hear the recording, i get loads of skips and jerks, quite like playing mp3's on a pc with the wrong codecks on..
    ive used all available players; media player, realone, winamp, quicktime, even clips streaming from internet players..
    everything is running through the motherboards soundcard, ie playback output, and recording input on soundforge..ive also tried by routing both input and output on a edirol usb card, but i still get the skips, and also loads of hiss..

    please help, i really wanna use some southpark samples in some tunes.!

    peace

    have you tried playing around with the latency/buffer size settings?
    could also possible be an irq conflict

    Check the sample rates.

    I doubt its that unless Gordo's computer is prehistoric.

    Gordo, switch off all your other programs before recording. Everything, including messengers, browsers, antivirus progs, etc. Let me know if that helps.
