Firstly I've got to say I'm sooo enjoying Mint LMDE. My first sustained linux experience and I'm loving it.
I've solved heaps of little issues but this one has me beat.
When I use my mike (either internal or external) there is static whenever I speak, distorting my voice. Barely usable. Unpleasant for my skype partners.
The closest I have found to a solution is this post:

but it talks about recompiling the kernel. That's one step beyond anything I've done. Is it fraught with danger? Any other solutions?
btw, it's an Conexant 20671 SmartAudio HD. I can't find the linux drivers anywhere. (and it works fine on windows7 so it's not hardware)
thanks for any help that can be offered!
