 Multimedia Control Quality of Recorded Sound

Is there someway to control the quality of the sound that is recorded in a
VB program using the Microsoft Multimedia control.  I am trying to record a
.wav file in 22K Hz (as is set up in the Control Panel multimedia settings)
but it seems to automatically record in 11K Hz mode which has poor sound
quality.  Does the control use the settings set in Control Panel or is it a
default for the control.  If there is not a way to control this setting
then I would appreciate it if someone could suggest a custom control that I
could use.

Yep, Create a empty stereo 22Khz soundfile (using a common WAV editor) and
keep it as your master. Now every time you need a new recording make a copy
of the master to lets say REC.WAV and connect that copy to the MCI object
and start your recording. Rename the REC.WAV to another name when your

This works. Ofcourse it is not the best solution. Try to read the
Multimedia SDK's (microsoft shit) for API calls directing the MM extensions
in W311 or W95. Settings like sampling rate, stereo, input balans, input
source and so on are supported by the MCI control and that sucks!

Well, have fun.
