Hello world!

After updating Anki I got a problem with adding audio to new flashcards. When I play back newly added voice recordings, the sound is strangely distorted. How can I fix this problem? Before the update, I've never had any issues with Anki.

I'd appreciate any help!
By the way, a huge thank you for providing Anki. Anki has helped me so much in my language leanings.

Warm regard,
Méchant Renard

    Hi Méchant,

    Does restarting your computer help? Do you have any other programs running that may be using your microphone? Does 2.1.15-alternate on the download site perform any differently?
