[xubuntu] Static background in microphone

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a VT82xx [HDA VIA VT82xx], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog] and I am trying to record a commentary on my Turtle Beach X31's headset/microphone using Audacity (using a 3/32 to 1/8" adapter) but there is this static background noise when I record. Anyone know how to get rid of the static? I am using Xubuntu 12.04 which uses pulseaudio. Any help would be appreciated. (Hardware)
