skype sound on 12.10

I have installed ubuntu 12.10, this works very well, except on skype the sound is not very good, on ubuntu 12.04 I had no problem. the sound playing a song is very good.
Thank you Tom

Are you using PulseAudio? On Fedora if I try to use PulseAudio with Skype it simply does not work at all.

First step, if you are using PulseAudio, is to uninstall it completely and start Skype up again? It should then start to use ALSA which will give you more control to set sound parameters?

At least for me, with Fedora 17, this solved all my problems with no sound and no mic in Skype and Skype is now working perfectly via ALSA once PulseAudio was uninstalled.

Skype sound

Thank you rylan76 very much for the reply on sound in Skype, I do not use fedora, use Ubuntu 12.10, The sound , I do not have or can not find pulse. I had Skype installed in Ubuntu 12.04, no problem. I am thinking the possibility is Skype and Ubuntu 12.10 has a bug, or maybe I have installed the wrong version of Skype.
Thank you again.
