Re: Audacity not recognizing USB cassette player

First, make sure Audacity has permission to access the "microphone" (which includes any audio input device).

Second, these cheap cassette-to-USB devices are notorious for constantly dropping the USB connection on Mac. We've not seen anyone who has had success with them.

Re: Connecting my USB microphone

Connect the microphone and verify it through System Preferences > Sound > Input (which it seems you've done).

Then start Audacity.

Click on the Recording Device dropdown in the Device toolbar. Do you see your microphone listed there?

Re: mp3 problems

I have no problem exporting an MP3 at 192 kbps cbr. Do you get the export dialog after you click the "Save" button?

Perhaps (I don't remember) Audacity 2.4.2 requires playback to be stopped rather than just paused :?
It does.

Allurajai: If you want the cursor to stay at the point where you stopped, use the "X" key to stop playback.

Re: Split cut or Silence audio?

What version of Audacity are you using?

Could you post a screenshot of a project when it is in a state where Split Cut is greyed out?

Re: I am a BEGINNER ...

billw-- The recording device listed is "Scarlett Solo", not specifically RODE mic. Is that ok? Yes. The Mac and thus Audacity recognize the interface. You could plug any mic into the Solo. I'm looking for someone else to chime in on the PortAudio error message. In the meantime, what happens if you ...

Re: Stereo input from zedi10

I'm not familiar with that mixer. The overview on the A+H site says it has a 4-in / 4-out USB interface, at 24-bit / 96 kHz. When you select the mixer as the Recording Device in Audacity's Device toolbar, what do you see for number of channels? What happens if you select the Mac's internal speakers ...

Re: No plug-ins folder?

I feel pretty ignorant but I must admit I don't see a "Go" menu in my Finder window, think someone needs to explain that in more detail for me. I used to see that a few generation of OS's back and a few Apple macs back as well for me. Thanks so much! :D Ummm .... Does this mean you're good, and fou...
