Possibly the clipping level (usually maxed) for the source material..

You could also try some other sound applications or utilities, such as..

Thanks for trying to help but I don't want to do a research if I may.
I only want a simple fix to a simple problem (at least I hope) because it used to work seamlessly not so long ago.

I followed what's written in viewtopic.php?f=141&t=73108
autocrosser suggested a fix http://earth.rockinthebury.com/?p=104
Not so elegant solution, but now it works!
