I tried the 44hz version more fully last night. The distortion is now gone but two new problems have cropped up: 1) an intermittent clicking noise is heard in the background; and 2) the music skips every once and a while. So far the stock sounds are the only ones I can play with no problems.
The stock sounds are a mix of 22, 44, and higher. Shifting them all to 44 has actually increased the load on your system. Sounds like you are buckling under the strain now.
I can try a 1:1 mapping on density and see what you end up with, but what you are saying is pretty much what I expect.
Sound support is usually the cheapest part of most computers. This is generally one of those *you get what you pay for* cases with most systems having OEM Soundblaster Basic type cards or onboard chipset sound (even worse).
my system is a P4 3.0 GHZ , Asus P4P800 mb, 1 G DDR 400 memory, Geforce FX5900, Windows XP pro and a Hercules Game theater 7.1 sound card. WITP should not be straining my system, although it might be time to upgrade my sound card.
After Mr.Frag's comment that the issue might be with my system, I did some fiddling around. It turned out the problem was in my sound card's control panel. I had bumped up the volume to 100% some time back to test out a pair of headphones. I reduced the volume to 70%, increased the speaker's volume and voila! problem solved. The 44hz sound pack rocks!
This is off topic, but would replacing my current sound card with a Audigy 2 ZS make an appreciable difference.
