Sound Problem

I have ubuntu desktop here, and Skype installed.
I'm having a problem with skype because it's playing my voice in a very low volume. IN voluce controls I have capture and capture 1, both at maximum, but if I leave the configuration window open when I make a skype call the capture volume goes half way down all by itself, and when I pull it up, it goes down again. What can I do?

Check your Skype settings, uncheck the option for Skype to automatically adjust your sound settings sse if that works.

I did that. I also checked capture and capture 1 in my Volume Control, both at max. My voice is still captured low. I checked it in skype test and recording my voice with a software that just record mic sounds and play them back.

One thing that might be worth mentioning is that below the mic's volume bar, there are two icons. One is a speaker image, and the other one a mic image. The mic image is blocked... I think it's like that so it doesn't capture my mic sound all the time, like a loop back.

A doubt I have, don't mux and mux1 interfere with my mic sound?
I have also options for IEC958, etc...

Sorry about the last message. I just realized now that I answered it in portuguese. My bad.
