If you have a USB audio interface, try disconnecting that. I have an old M-Audio Fastrack pro (no longer supported) and I've had some issues that were cleared up by removing it during the recording.

Don't use Camtasia for audio.  I use Adobe Audition to record the audio before I do anything else.  I get the audio in pretty good shape then record the video in synch with the audio.  If you can't afford Adobe Creative Cloud, Audacity is open-source shareware and is very good.

My two cents worth,

Could you tell us a bit more about your particular audio setup? Though, I must admit, this sounds specific to your machine and therefore getting somebody in Tech Support looking at it directly would probably be more fruitful.

dshaw587, thousands of us use Camtasia 3 Mac without the problem you mention. You'll have to describe the specific problem you're having, plus your audio setup, OS, etc for us to be of any help. posting a link to an example file would also help.
