Audio very much messed up on final recording.
So I have purchased Wirecast Pro 14.1.1 three weeks ago and love it. Some issues back and forth but most I can work around. So far I have not been able to fix that randomly the sound has a bit of rebotic effect on it. I was lucky once that my guest on rendezvous noticed it and I rebooted the entire system and it was gone. I have an i7 with 32 gigs of ram on a water cooled system. But today I did a show with no guests. So I was not able to tell how that audio was sounding. I have to monitor the board sound because monitor the final sound is always a few seconds behind and sometimes creates double sound. But this time with no guest I did not notice the issue till the hour show was completed and the host was gone. Lucky for me, I have backups after backups of all the work I do. So I also recorded the audio on Cubase which is what I use for the timing of the show and commercials. (I have yet to learn how to do a timed show on wirecast. But I just have not found the right youtube training videos yet) So because I have a backup of the raw audio from the board I was able to use lightworks to import the saved video from wirecast and then overlay the sound from the board recorded on Cubase and finally nudge it to match the lips of the host. He has no idea that I failed horribly on producing his show, which is good for me. But I would like to know why it happened and how to ensure it does not continue to happen.
SAMPLE OF THE ISSUE
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rcguctjrpcnpc6j/MyStream_43.mp4?dl=0 This is the full show as it got it from my storage folder after the show was done.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pstpfugq01hy52d/Ep%2070%20Church%20Hurt.mp4?dl=0 This was the full show after I used the backup file from cubase that was recorded on the same computer so it is not the audio board, or the USB connection.
Any ideas would be helpful. Oh and the CPU usage never went over 40% during this show.

It depends on what the sound source was, what the sample rate was of the source, whether you were hearing it in local monitoring, the live stream, the recording.
It's not clear what Cubase role is in this but that adds further complication because the DAW may be part of the problem.

Sorry but I not completely understand the intent. Audio from the board will let you know how input is (assuming that's what you're monitoring). Monitoring Wirecast is the ONLY way to know how it's processing the sound. It will be delayed because... it's processing the sound. Monitoring the stream is yet another place that tells you how the encoder/internet/server/CDN is handling Wirecast output. Generally, the most critical point is monitoring Wirecast and using mix minus if the delay bothers the host.

We are not streaming it yet. because I read that if you just record you get a better quality than if you stream AND record.
That should have no impact if your setting are good and your CPU is under 60%
