[PlanetCCRMA] audio recording - strange

i've just started exploring muse, and i've notice a strange thing with
audio recording -

when i record my guitar from the line-in (after being pre-amped by my
minidisc) into muse, it records and plays-back just the way it should -
nice and clean with a good level ...

but if i open up the *.wav file that muse recorded in a media player
such as xmms, amarok or alsaplayer, the guitar is way back behind a wall
of fuzz and static!?

however, if i mixdown the master output of muse to a *.wav file, that
plays in xmms/amarok/alsaplayer as it does in muse itself ...

i noticed that muse creates a *.wca file for each audio input recording
it makes, so i'm wondering - does that *.wca file contain some of the
encoding/decoding information for the audio input recording that is
necessary to associate with the *.wav file in order to play it back
outside of muse? if that makes sense ...

i've only ever done audio production on windows, so i'm a bit confused
