Skype 4.1 , Ubuntu 12 – Distorted audio / sound

If your getting distortion when you open Skype, and/or distorted sound when Skype make a notification sound, read on …..

Go to Skype – Options – Sound Devices. Un-tick “Allow skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels”

If your STILL getting distortion open a command prompt and type

sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa

Add tsched=0 to the end of the line that reads ‘load-module module-udev-detect’ so it looks like…

load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0

Save (CTRL-X  –  Y  –  Enter)  and reboot.

Your good to go.
