My USB mic is recording at approx double speed and pitch in Q&A Posted February 6, 2021 Thanks both. I tried changing the sample rate to 48kHz. That seemed to stop the thing being double speed, but the audio quality was very distorted (dalek like). But the mention of WASAPI Exclusive was helpful - I tried changing the driver to that and that seemed to help. (though that won't work at 48kHz).
