Camtasia (Windows): WAV file sound quality degraded in Camtasia Studio compared to other media players

Typically this behavior occurs when the WAV file has a sample rate other than 22.050 kHz or 44.100 kHz.  If you have a pre-existing recording, you can use a program like Audacity to modify the sample rate of the WAV file.

Steps using Audacity

  1. Start a new project.
  2. Click Project > Import Audio.  Select your audio file and click Open.
  3. Change the Project rate setting to 22050 or 44100 (at the bottom of the window).
  4. Click File > Export As WAV (16 bit).
  5. Import the new WAV file into Camtasia Studio.
