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 http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=73108

Not so elegant solution, but now it works!
