I'm getting an extrange "metallic" sound while recording with Kazam, my voice sounds like "metallic distorted", this is not happening if I record using arecord in Terminal, even Skype is working perfectly. Kazam is at 1.4.3, but I wasn't getting this voice distortion in Quantal Quetzal (with kazam at 1.4.3 too) so it may not be a bug of Kazam.

I tried this fix but it didn't work. I really need a neat voice recording, trying to increase arecord time of recording makes the generated .wav file very big, so do you guys know another workaround like this? or maybe the solution of this kind of distortion? Thanks.
