I made a recording using OBS with the audio coming out all garbled and the audio wave looking like this:
It may not be clear from the screenshot but there regular gaps in the sound wave. I’m not quite sure what could’ve caused this, my best guess it that the hardware was set to a lower sampling rate than the recording software; I checked and did test recordings before and afterwards, both were set to 48kHz and both came out fine. It was an 1h+ live recording of a lecture so doing another take is not an option.
Is there any way to salvage this? If not, any ideas what could’ve caused it so I know what to watch out for next time?
