Well... The usb mic works perfect... I just changed the VOICE Recording device to my new usb mic device and everything worked perfect... So there is definetly something wrong with my M10000 sound card/mic port or there is some weird driver stuff going on... The usb mic sounds a ton better than my older analog mic so I am going to just stick with it, but I really wish we could have figured out what was causing the weird M10000 behavior..
