[known] Erratic behavior and scattered, broken notes

Affected users:  Anyone using the same microphone in imitone and another "pro-audio" application at the same time.

Symptoms:  imitone tracks very poorly, responding with a mess of small, scattered notes -- or not at all.  If the headphones button is enabled, the sound is garbled or crackling.

Cause:  The audio input is out of sync, usually because of mismatched settings between imitone and the other app.

Status:  This is not a bug in imitone, and can't be "fixed" directly.

Instructions:  There are a few ways to work around this problem:

1. Use different microphones for imitone and the other app.

(This is the easiest and most robust solution -- imitone is often happy with simple USB microphones.)

2. Adjust the other app's buffer-size and sample rate to match imitone's.

imitone typically requests a 256-sample buffer and the default sample-rate of the device.
Some users report that increasing the device's sample-rate can fix the problem.
In the future I will make these settings adjustable in imitone.  I may also attempt to create an "auto-detect" function.

3. Wait for the release of the imitone VST, which will allow imitone to run inside music apps and prevent this conflict.
