severe distortion when recording in audiomulch

I don't know if this should be posted here but it is an issue with the file recorder in audiomulch.

I've been using audiomulch for a while now and have hit upon a problem with the file recorded. Basically there is a severe discrepancy between the frequencies I hear while monitoring a recording and what is actually recorded.

This is particularly prevalent when using a mulch I created to quickly subvert the melody in a sample.

This mulch consists of two nasty reverb units (the output from the first being used as the input for the second) and a RingAM unit that processes the output from the second Nasty Reverb unit.

If I set the reverb time or wet/ dry values high I get quite complex sounds coming out of the speakers but all that is recorded is a sound similar to radio static. An example where I used this for effect can be heard here:

I can overcome this by recording to tape and then recording this to my computer using audacity but this is a clunky and time consuming procedure and I was wondering if anyone else had experienced a similar problem and if they had how they had overcome it.

I have no issue with the file recordings I have made (although on OS X, 32 bit floating point recordings result in silence). Without seeing precisely what's going on, and with the info you have provided, its only possible to guess what is going on...

So, In the first instance I would *guess* that you are seriously clipping both the output and the recording and that *may* be why the recording results in other than what the sound output is. If you apply a limiter to both the sound out and recording, are the results the same or different?
