This only happens when I am recording under the following conditions: When I am recording with a stand-alone usb microphone AND recording Video with a Logitech usb webcam during my screen capture.

You can hear the popping example at

Recording with just the stand-alone mic (Yeti or CAD u37) or the logitech webcam (using its own mic) and I do not get any popping.

Used the Windows sound recorder (Along with camtasia) and I do not get popping.

Things I have done to try and resolve:
updated motherboard graphics/chipset drivers.
bought a new mic, the CAD u37
tried a new logitech webcam.
tried different usb ports
among many others.

please help!

I posted about this several months ago and had a tech working with me, sending files back and forth but I gave up on this.  Now I am determined to get to the bottom of it!

On May 12, 2015 a Camtasia Studio maintenance version was released that has a fix for the audio popping issue with webcam and mic recordings.
