What is most frustrating is not having any replies from Ventrilo staff.

Do any of them have this issue?

I've been running some tests on 10.6 and here is what I've found:

My best buy headset goes robo, and sometimes I have to unplug it to fix the issue.

My griffin imic with normal headset never goes robo. Tried it for 2+ days, never once did it go weird.

So it looks like the change in 10.5.8 possibly affected a certain range of products, perhaps that use a common chipset for usb?

Can you go into a little bit more detail of how you have your set up done that prevents the Robotic voice? I saw you said you used a Griffin iMic and looking at it online at other sites I'm a little bit confused as to exactly what to do with it. Will I be able to plug my headset's mic input into the iMic instead of the USB dongle thing it came with my headset?

Yeah, the iMic just has a line/headphone in and a headphone out.

I won't guarantee it works for you, but it seems to be working fine here.

And for all I know, different versions of imics might use different chipsets. I've reported this data to Apple to try and help find a real solution.

Well, ordered ($60) it and it arrived. Seemed to fix the problem for about 40 minutes in, and then Robo.... :( I just wanna cry...

I have started an official thread on Apple's discussion forums about this topic. Please feel free to post.

We've been having the same problem - same issues as above. Really annoying! Disconnecting can help the situation, but only very briefly. It's become almost impossible to use at this point.

Some possibly good news here

However, don't get your hopes up quite yet.

10.6.2 = No love.

10.6.2 Robotic sounds continue. In fact, I think they became worse.

Before, I could disconnect from the server and immediately reconnect. Now I am having to quit totally out of Vent, start it back up, reconnect. Took me four times last night to finally clear it up.
