I will try - the company is Scansoft, who I don't believe is known for
their tech support.
One other time I talked to them, a "preamp" was not on their recommended
list (neither is a Sennheiser 431), and they said they couldn't help
with anything connected this way. This answer, despite the fact that it
is clearly an option offerred by the program ;-)
I may start poking around their various ini files and registry entries
because I now have narrowed down when it actually occurs.
Thanks for the suggestion.
