Buzzard, it's a problem with Audacity not Linux. It's quite heavy on system resources, and can introduce latency artifacts depending on how much memory is available to the buffer. You have 2 choices: either change the Audacity preferences so that the buffer size is increased, or use another app to record the audio (you can use Audacity to process it afterward). The latter option is more likely to work. Audacity can cause these problems with Windows as well. The reason it might not do so could be that the version you're running on your Windows machine is much older. :0

Something else you might try: use ALSA drivers instead of OSS, and see what happens.

I've seen XmmS balk on this same computer while playing large .wav files.  (pauses while the disk reads)  I'll try those ALSA drivers; I think I saw some on the MYDSL webpage.

(oh, and on windows i wasn't using audacity, i had a different sound recording thing that only did one track)

thanks for the advice, ill let you know how it goes.
