I've searched around the askubuntu site and no seems to be having a similar issue. Everyone's having problems with Skype, etc.. me? I'm just having a problem with REALLY bad microphone static. I uploaded an example of it to YouTube to give you an idea... (brace your ears!)

What could be causing this. It is NOTHING like this in Windows 7 or 8. Just Ubuntu. Hadn't really noticed it until today, because today was the first time I tried to use Skype on Ubuntu, and nearly blew out my friends eardrums! Please help!

How high is the volume of the microphone, and did you try to change it? – Bobby May 17 '12 at 16:20
