0x888890008 has something to do with a configuration error with your audio inputs on your machine. You could try the following:
1. Right click the Speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of Windows and select Recording Devices
2. Locate the device in the list and go to Properties then Advanced.
3. Set the Default Format to 44100 Hz and click OK.
4. Go back in and set it back to 48000 Hz and click OK.
Steps 1-4 above may also need to be applied to the corresponding Speaker device under the Playback tab as well.
If the issue persists then please provide provide debug logs as per https://www.jaksta.com/support/windows/technical/jaksta-music-recorder/how-to-generate-debug-logs-6000009060.
