“monitor of …” takes the input from audio played by the system
hence the software that you are running shouldn’t be using it, change it to your mic.

If all the devices are connected properly, this command may help to debug the issue: arecord -l

Hi, thanks for your replies

@Th3Director Unfortunately I have no other choice than Monitor of Built-In if I don’t plug in any external device

@Farial_Mahmod result of your command:

card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC3204 Analog [ALC3204 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 2: ALC3204 Alt Analog [ALC3204 Alt Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

i try to record an audio from my default source with this next command and i tape a noisy cracklin’ scratched sound:

arecord -t wav --max-file-time 10 test.wav

Hello, I’m facing the same problem, and when I run.

I have manage to fix the mic from sounds settings. The sound comes out scratchy.
