Random pips are recorded in sound recorder.

When playing back, sometimes silence or just one pip is played instead.

Insert USB mike.
Open sound preferences and select "Samson Technologies Samson C01U USB Audio (ALSA)"
Open sound recorder
Press Record
Speak to mike ("la la la")
Press stop
Play back

Expected result:

Audio "la la la" is played

Actual result - pips

The mike works smoothly on a Macintosh and acceptably on Windows.

The saved WAV file contains pips in movie payer, silence in audacity.

Isn't this most likely an ALSA problem?

Have you tried recording with Audacity? Or maybe something like Jokosher?
