Older skype has been really sketchy after the MS acquisition and after
they started modifying the network. I don't see how mixer settings could
affect sound quality other than too much gain -> distortion. Ever heard
of other alternatives like Tox or Ring? Both better technologies imho
than the ones mentioned. In freebsd you can at least pkg install utox.
Not sure if Ring (ring.cx) is available.
