Re: Teaching AUDACITY on Zoom

Any advice for me?
I think the original phrasing was OK. You're trying to do everything on one computer and you can't do that. The software doesn't work that way.

See original reply.

Re: Voice and Music are being recorded on the same track

Do you like recording Youtube music or other internet sound? The recording device for that is different from simple recording or overdubbing (what you're doing). If you pick the wrong one, you'll record both your voice and the backing track. What does it say in the Audacity window next to the microp...

Re: NEED HELP ASAP! cleaning up phone audio

co host didn't have good internet I have internet like that. Downlink is OK, Uplink is terrible. Is there anyway to edit/clean up/fix their audio so it doesn't sound so drastically bad compared to mine??? In a word, no. If the phone was being used hand's-free, then the phone is in full correction m...

Re: Saving Projects

Are you on Audacity 3.0.2? 3.0.2 has a new save tool. File > Save Project > Backup Project. That will let you save a whole project under a new name and stay where you are. That will collect multiple intact backups as you go instead of making you constantly shuffle between the Current and One-Away pr...

Re: Can i repair a recording after BSOD

I would expect autosave during recording would work every few seconds and give you a chance to recover most of the recording at the next startup.
Cool. What would the recovery look like? I'm not on Windows and we don't know what cause the BSODs.

Re: I'm teaching AUDACITY on ZOOM... problems

There's another recommendation for the separate mixer method. It doesn't have Noise Suppression. Automatic Noise Suppression looks for long duration sounds. It assumes those are background noise and it deletes them. Music can have long duration sounds. Automatic Noise Suppression hates music. Violin...

Re: I'm teaching AUDACITY on ZOOM... problems

If you're playing music into Zoom in addition to your voice, that's two different sound devices and Zoom won't do that. So what Zoom is sending is probably direction management and echo cancellation errors, not the actual music. This is what happens when people try to force Audacity to record both s...

Re: Opinion, please?

give me an OK We have two support levels: Get it to work at all and then clean up around the edges after you get it running. Since you do have a workable solution, make sure you like the voice quality and then go with it. There are no conditions a good engineer can't make a lot worse. -- Kozikowski...

I know you were looking for a button push. Sorry. This is a massively complicated job.

Re: I'm teaching AUDACITY on ZOOM... problems

Would this help? This is a badly-edited engineering test I did with Denise. We're four time zones apart. Everything you hear is live and real-time at the time. https://www.kozco.com/tech/audacity/clips/DenisePodcastVer5.mp3 You didn't describe what the class was, and I'm sure there are going to be h...
