Windows Vista and laterVista and subsequent versions of Windows (Win7, Win8, Win10) have caused a number of issues. For more discussion of this, please check out this page.
USB Audio InterfacesWhen you plug in an external USB audio interface, it is quite possible that Windows will think it is a microphone, and as a result install it as a mono device. This results in your stereo recordings containing just one of the channels (usually the left), duplicated to both channels of the stereo WAV file.
To fix this issue, within Windows Control Panel select Manage audio devices then bring up the Properties for the USB interface (which will probably be called something like "Microphone (USB Audio CODEC)"). Go to the Recording tab, then the Advanced tab, and change the format to 2-channel CD quality.
Realtek SoundcardsThe Realtek range of sound chips is becoming increasingly popular, especially for use as onboard sound on motherboards. The way that some drivers for Realtek soundcards work is different to the traditional methods used by the likes of Soundblasters, etc. This difference means the facility Wave Repair provides that allows for direct selection of the recording input and adjustment of recording level does not work with many Realtek based soundcards. For a more in-depth discussion, take a look at this page.
Wave Repair can still record from these soundcards, but you will have to use the standard Windows Volume Control utility to make adjustments.
