Re: audacity-macos-3.0.0-dmg Virustotal warning

Typical scam AV vendor. They try to sell a subscription, adding a "no questions asked" refund if you don't like it. Of course, no refunds, even if you insist.

I've notified VT.

Re: Pop sounds using Soundflower and Spotify

I think SoundFlower is no longer being developed. I'd expect it not to function fully with Catalina. Which version are you using?

Using Audio Hijack, from Rogue Amoeba should be a supported replacement, but it's not free.

Re: Suddenly Everything Went Distorted

Just a longshot...

Have you tried opening Audio/Midi setup (in /Applications/Utilities) and checking and reaffirming settings there?

In rare occasions, this fixes Core audio if it seems "stuck" like this.

Re: Can't open Audacity anymore

Okay, so I've used the search bar and actually found and copied the folder from my backup. Unfortunately it has made it worse: eversince I copied the folder and restarted it, my whole MacBook doesn't work anymore! Worst case scenario... You could try booting from the recovery partition. Hold comman...

Re: Sound not recording

Welcome to the forum!

What's your setup? Microphone, interface..

Does your microphone need phantom power? Is it off, by chance?

Just a hunch, of course...

Re: Pulsing audio on playback via USB

Have you tried resetting prefs? See:

https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/pre ... html#reset
Delete audacity.cfg in

~/Library/Application Support/audacity/
To access that folder, use the "go" menu and select "go to folder". Paste the above path into the resulting dialog box.

Re: TRACKING STEREO AT TWO DIFFERENT VOLUMES???

I'm using a Roland Quad capture and yeah, it has the same knobs as the Pre Sonus you linked. The recording level you are referring to functions as the gain, correct? If I turn down the recording level on my interface I'm also turning down the gain, no? Yes. Usually the pot is an attenuator between ...

Re: Same old problem?

The older versions of Audacity(not sure which version but it was pre-Soundflower requirement) did it very easily. As I recall there was a "line in" source option. "Line in" wasn't from Apple, unless you're talking about last century. Soundflower wasn't awful either. I's just unmaintained and doesn'...

Re: Fix nearly unavoidable nightmare audio

Just a longshot...

Have you tried PZM mics on the wall or ceiling? These have somewhat less problems with reflections and since hospitals (and especially operating rooms) tend to be rather reflective, it could help with legibility.
