[SOLVED] Slow Recordings and Playback in Audacity

Hi
I occasionally record from my system's stereo mix with Audacity, radio shows etc. Up until recently I'd been using LL 1.08 but have upgraded to 2.0. Now, however, Audacity records and plays back recordings slowly. I have tried various settings, sample rates and so on but nothing seems to correct the problem.  As it worked perfectly in 1.08, I'm wondering if the issue is with 2.0 or Audacity.

Does anyone know what version of Audacity was in LL 1.08 and if different, could this be re-installed to see if the fault lies with the 2.0.5 version of Audacity?

Incidentally version 2.06 is now available on the Audacity website but I believe you have to compile it yourself from the tar.xz file, which as a relative newcomer to Linux I'm not too sure about.

I'd be interested to see any suggestions or if anyone has had similar problems.

Regards
dby

I guess my question was a bit abstruse but just for reference I've managed to solve the problem with my particular system.

There are so many options in Audacity's 'Output Device' and 'Input Device' selections I guess it's a matter of selecting the right combination. I now have:

Audio Host: Alsa
Output Device: Pulse
Input Device: Pulse: Mix:0
Project Rate: 44100

Linux sound settings seem complex but all seems well at the moment.
