There is a way to fix static . Here is how: [this is from the FAQ]

Q: Sometimes I broadcast "static".
Research has shown this problem to be either directly caused by XP or a combination of the OS and sound card drivers. Some machines are also prone to generating static when the server is configured to use a 22Khz sample rate vs. the default 11Khz. But even then not everyone will have this problem.
Static also tends to be induced on XP systems if you have more then one program monitoring the same sound card's input device (i.e. using in-game voice comms while using Ventrilo) or if another program in the background tries to manipulate the same sound card's mixer and controls.
There is also a bind feature called "Reset sound input device" which can be used to stop static until the next time it happens. However, you might need to reset it several times to make it actually stop. There will be a 3 second delay after you press the bind and before you can start transmitting again.


Please be advised that the Static and Robotic problems are not caused by Ventrilo. They are either OS or sound card driver related.
1) Try using a USB based microphone.
2) Enable any onboard sound and use it for your microphone input.
3) In setup enable the "Use DirectSound for input device". This might help.

Alternately if you still have static try resetting your sound input device using a bind key. to do this follow my easy directions below:

1. At top of screen open bindings.

2. Hit New > Type "Static Bind" and hit enter

3 Under Function Tab toggle to the binding called "Reset Sound Input Device"

4. Use NUMPAD KEY 7 on right keypad for Bind key / Hotkey
5 To Bind the Binding / Hotkey, click "Add" and then in the "Current" box on the left highlight the binding and click "Update"

6. You will get a message displaying "This will update the currently selected key binding with the currently selected list of files/speech/text" --THIS IS OK--

7. CLICK OK

8 . Hit Ok to exit bindings setup

9 Toggle to the new binding at top of your Ventrilo and select it, then hit NUMPAD 7 three or four times to reset it. (it often takes a few presses) You will not hear or see any notification of change other than the static is gone.

10. Ventrilo will work fine.

Hope it helps
