Hello!

I bought a microphone (MICO from Trust) and plugged it into the 3.5 jack
of my computer.

My OS is Debian testing on an old Acer desktop.

To begin, I had a lot of static noise which was removed when I tried:

pactl load-module module-echo-cancel aec_method=webrtc

without really understanding what I did.

I have looked into pactl list and see this:

Now I wonder why there is a difference in sample specification between
the sources.


Without echo cancellation:

Sample Specification: s16le 2ch 48000Hz


With echo cancellation:

Sample Specification: float32le 1ch 32000Hz
