Alan, do you have a built in (on motherboard) sound card, or is it a separate add in card? 

Either way it sounds like you have some sort of echo effect, or reverb switched on in the sound card control panel.

What pc/lp you using ?
My asus lp has its own sound effects prog which can be changed.
When I first got it my sounds where like a bathroom effect similar to echo. I changed them and stopped them running from an icon in the task bar.

Alan, it wasn't important to know if it was built in or not, I was just wondering if if was a built in AC57 etc so we can ID the software that controls it.

Just have a look in device manager, under sound controllers.  That will give you a clue as to what type of card you have.  ;)

Alan  looks like you have a built in sound card AC97, same as me.

Somewhere you should have a control panel for that, or at least I have for mine.  My one is called "C-media".  What's that "Multi Channel Sound ? " icon in your control panel 4th from right at the top?   Is that your sound control panel?
