Yeah this is a problem of so-called latency. To reduce the echo

of latency too (depending on how many filters are used to process the

In my case, I am using an external audio interface (M-Audio
MobilePre). This has a headphone jack that reproduces the input into
my professional mic without latency). The problem of course is that
when recording skype, I also need to her the other person. If I set
the computer’s audio output to the external interface and have the
recording monitoring on, then I will hear myself twice too (the first
time is the zero latency monitoring and the second is what GB is

I am sure that there are ways to get around the latency problem, but
for now I am sticking to the ’small buffer’ to at least reduce it.
