Re: ASIO support in Audacity 2.4.2

OK, I (finally!) got Audacity 2.4.2 with ASIO to compile on Windows 10. :D I would like to share with you my steps, so that you may/might be able to duplicate them. My thanks to steve, Apesbrain and micsthepick whose posts gave me the solution I only had to duplicate and document; and to Steve A Le...

Re: Can't build Audacity on Windows 10

I confess that these kinds of problems have caused me to give up on the latest version. Its a classic mistake to change something that is tried and tested, properly documented, working well, and giving quick results. I shall be sticking with version 2.4.1 which is the last that I managed to build wi...

Re: wxWidgets 3.1.3 - Windows Build Audacity 2.4.2

Well I gave it my best shot but it was a bit of a disaster. Started with a new windows 10 computer and the latest instructions, attempting to follow to the letter. I wanted to build the released version of 2.4.2 but not sure if this is what I actually downloaded. wxWidgets eventually went OK althoug...

Re: wxWidgets 3.1.3 - Windows Build

Sorry to hear that the new methodology isn't quite working for you yet. Given that everyone working on it is an unpaid volunteer I will refrain from any criticism other than to quote the engineer's motto of " if it ain't broke don't fix it". I'll try the instructions out myself as soon as I can and ...

Re: USB Audio Interface Setup - Microphone Properties Help

I tried to Normalize at -2db but it still sounded quiet. My question is about the Warning message. The most likely culprit would be standard Realtek drivers which are the default for most chipsets with built in audio. In the task bar icons the standard audio settings are under the two dimensional l...

Re: USB Audio Interface Setup - Microphone Properties Help

Did your USB audio interface come with its own drivers or software? If so this might be what is running and hence referred to by the message. Look for an application in the start menu or in the task bar icons which refers to the USB interface by make or model name and see if this has options to choo...

Re: (Windows) Couldn't find data folder

Without being certain about your file and folder details is it possible that there is a name discrepancy between some with the "8" and some without due to renaming at some point? I would go even further than Steve and say as soon as you have finished an important recording session save it using expo...

Re: wxWidgets 3.1.3 - Windows Build

Hi, I built 3.1.3 using Visual Studio 2017 professional using the solution file. I had no problems. However I cloned the git repo rather than downloading the zip. See my previous post for the commit ID I used. Was it only failing for Visual Studio 2019 for you? I only tried VS2019 community edition...

wxWidgets 3.1.3 - Windows Build

Instructions for compiling under windows seem to be in flux at the moment and I noticed that the version of wxWidgets required for the next release is now 3.1.3 so I thought I would update. Following wiki instructions ( well partly at least ) I downloaded the "for audacity" version from github using...

windows 2.4.1 (ASIO compile)

Thanks all for the latest version. For those of us who need ASIO I can confirm that build was successful using the version tagged 2.4.1. make sure you scroll down the tag options to find this unless you want a work in progress version. I make no recommendations but for the record I used Visual Studi...
