I have the Fedora 38 Workstation. And all works perfect, but one day ago my microphone started to record strange alien sounds.
I’ve searched some information from commands:
arecord -lL **** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices **** card 0: Camera [A4tech FHD 1080P PC Camera], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 card 2: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC1220 Analog [ALC1220 Analog] Subdevices: 0/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 card 2: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 2: ALC1220 Alt Analog [ALC1220 Alt Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
ALC1220 is my recording device (the rear microphone).

When in GRUB I load the Fedora 37 the microphone works perfect.
Actually, I’ve noticed the strange thing in Audacity: one second there is equal to twelve seconds in real-time…
The test recording is HERE.
Should I purge pipewire and install it again?
