    it can add mad distortion... i turned it off and got better quality...

    only have it on if you're recording a mic directly into your soundcard

    Yeah.. I believe some mics have this option built in, then you have one on your computer..

    My old Dynamic radioshack mic I kept it on for my computer, but with my Behringer B2 it's unneccesary.. plus I have a new soundcard that don't have that option as far as I know, I haven't bothered lookin.
