i have recorded game play footage on my ps4 using an Elgato HD60 s and the video it produced is fine, nothing wrong with it, nice audio. but when loading it on to the timeline in camtasia about halfway through of editing it i hear my voice echo but it doesn't show on my audio file. Is there a fix to this? or is my camtasia just lagging pretty badly. i use an Acer notebook with AMD A8 quad-core processor with 8GB of ram. please help its hard to edit now.

okay i have rendered the video to see if the echo follows and it does, which is annoying. i recorded the gameplay with an elgato hd60 s and there was no echo in that recording. The echo only came when i started editing the video in camtasia

I have had the same thing.
I recorded a video with a proper mic, its fine on the recording but as soon as it goes on to camtasia to edit, you get this screeching echo.

Just kind of pondering out loud a bit on this one.

I've noticed that sometimes applications such as Camtasia or Skype or other apps that use the microphone will "leave the microphone running". Sorry, but that's the only way I can describe it. I've seen it more than once where I had been using an application like this and I begin hearing odd noises and when I put the headset back on, the mic is "listening" and passing what it hears back to the speakers.

If you have a mute button for the mic, try pressing it. You may even be able to mute it by double clicking the volume control icon for the computer.

Curious if that were done if the problem would disappear?

Cheers... Rick :)
