Headphones not recognized

I'm running the latest version of Audacity on a new computer and I've just been having so many issues I'm ready to go back to my broken computer! The latest one added to the current list now is that if I unplug headphones while in Audacity, I have to then tell it to use the speakers to play back. Th...

Re: Pickup Problems

A while back we created two different sets of shortcuts: Standard and Full . If you go to Keyboard Preferences and click on defaults and select Full - then you will get your Ctrl+J back. See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/keyboard_preferences.html WC Thanks! I thought I'd done a thorough sear...

Pickup Problems

I just started my first recording with Audacity 3.0 and I'm running into a couple of things I didn't have on the earlier version. I've suddenly got a lot of clipped first words in sentences (I'm narrating audiobooks) that I never had in the old version. I haven't changed anything on my microphone so...

Re: Audiobook Settings Help

Thank you, Steve. I'll give that all a shot. It's a good thing I'll be starting with a brand-new book on the new version instead of picking up halfway through my current book! Koz, I haven't read any of my own books since I'm submitting to agents. These are from other authors on Amazon. I've read ma...

Audiobook Settings Help

Years ago, I found the best formatting list here on the forum and I've been using that and passing all my checks no problem. But I recently upgraded my computer, and of course along came the newest version of Audacity to be installed. So much seems different that I have no idea how to set things up ...

Re: Can someone volunteer to clean up my audios?

I doubt you're going to find someone to volunteer for something like that, but if you check out Fivrr, there are plenty of people on there who will do that kind of thing for very reasonable prices.

Re: Acx help - Cancelling a narration.

I know I'm a bit late to the game here, but If you're cancelling because you're worried about not getting it in by the deadline, talk to the author! I fell behind on things a couple of times, once around the holidays when life got crazy unexpectedly, and again after Covid hit and my kids were home a...

Re: Trouble with Peaks and EQ

Okay, I feel like an idiot! I had been using the Normalize plugin, but I was blind and missed the order of operations for using it. I applied that to the trouble chapter and it's perfect! Thank you so much, and I'm sorry I wasted your time. I truly appreciate it! Oh, also, did you still want that so...
