I don't know if this would be of much help but maybe you can explore the audio properties of it in Windows.

Right click your speaker icon in Windows and select Recording Devices. Choose your mic and check the settings er properties er whatever. Sometimes there is a tab that lets you choose some basic sound processing settings.

no luck, its giving me loads of delay now this used to work with my old sound card, but cant get it to work at all now?
i have a usb saffire card now, the recording it coming in, but its still chopping up the audio like a gate ?
