Can't record speech onset with mic component

Hi fhechler,

Just curious if you ever found a solution? It sounds like I’ve had a similar issue as you.

In my case, I had to lower my recording frequency to 16 k and that did the job. However, as you note, I’m still finding that my experiments will crash randomly. Really strange.

I see that @jens mentioned a solution to a somewhat related problem in this thread.

I’m not entirely sure if this is the same issue I’m having. In my task a person names a picture using a microphone connected to an external voicekey device that converts the utterance to a button press. That press serves to measure RT relative to picture onset. Randomly in our experiments a trial will just freeze and we’ll have to restart the experiment. It’s really frustrating and I’m not entirely sure what’s going on.
