@djmm: You've misinterpreted what I said. All of the microphone circuits are the same so the variation depends on the setup. For example in a studio environment, the microphone use is relatively controlled so there is very rarely distortion, but for a mobile gig people will yell into the mic and the distortion is definitely noticeable. And every mic has different output, so some are much more likely than others to have distortion issues. It could also be that some customers found their own solutions and never called in.
For the slow mouse track, you can adjust your mouse settings in software. I've also worked on a version which just puts out a higher output but then there's also more noise so I'm not sure this is better.
Remember we're here to help you and you have your adapter coming. If you come on this forum looking for help, you're not going
@DJ Craig Mac: This issue is entirely from the hardware. The software updates are to fix other issues.
