I'm having problems recording audio on windows using usb audio devices. The recorded material will have some kind of jitter/clicking noice.

I tested three different usb microphones and three different recording applications. Every combination will have the same problem.

Does some one know a solution for this problem?

I solved the problem by applying this hot fix from Microsoft: It's a 64 bit Windows XP problem.

Try, if possible, to connect only the usb device that you want to use as microphone and unplug the other usb devices.
