Fixing Chipmunk sound on Skype

My environment is:
OS: Blackbuntu 0.3 x64 (Ubuntu 10.10 inside)
Kernel: 2.6.39-3-bb03
Microphone: USB Webcam Logitech C310

My problem was when I speak on Skype my voice turns into Chipmunk-like sound. But if I don't use Skype, I can record my voice clearly with other tool, e.g. Audacity.

First I tried remove module "snd-usb-audio", and re-insert it again. This doesn't work.

Editing its config at '/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf' doesn't work either.

Tried this one, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/UsbAudioDevices doesn't work either.

Adding '~/.asoundrc' doesn't work either.

THE PROBLEM IS FROM SKYPE!!!

The solution is to uncheck the box says "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my microphone mixer levels"

Solution is from this forum thread: http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=468941&st=0

----- UPDATE ---
a day after, it didn't work.
So I install pavucontrol:  sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
Then, the Skype option(sound devices) will have another button on that page.
Open that page and set to...

set fall back button on this page (green button)

for my device set internal Audio, set Profile to "Analog Stereo Duplex"
