Post Is there a fix for garbled audio out in Skype ?
In skype test calls audio-out is so garbled you cannot understand a word. I've looked at a couple of known fixes but they were for older versions of skype and also much older Linux kernels so I'm leery of meddling with them.

you are running the latest, right (2.0.81 IIRC)? Get the version before that (.47), that should solve it.

To see the Kmix settings that work for me, see the screenshot in this public gallery:

I arrived at these settings in a 2-way session with a very patient friend who worked with me for almost a half hour testing every position of ever slider. He reported my audio to be perfect by the time we finished.
