Re: Recording Levels

Audacity's recording level slider is dependent on the sound card drivers. Some sound card drivers do not implement the necessary API, meaning that they ignore Audacity's recording level slider. This is nearly always the case with USB devices, but also applies to some others. In such cases, use the c...

Re: plugins always stay disabled

There seems to be a problem with the Snap package: https://github.com/diddlesnaps/audacity/issues/17 I'd suggest that you completely remove the Snap version of Audacity, then: 1.Delete the hidden folders: ~/.audacity-data ~/.audacity-files (where "~/" means your home folder) 2. Install Audacity 2.4....

How are you recording to Audacity with NanoHost? I think he was using "WASAPI loopback" to record all sounds that are playing on the computer. How to do that is described here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html#Windows_WASAPI_loopback_recording

Re: Noise Gate Not Working

If you're using Audacity 3.0.0, then you need to update to Audacity 3.0.2. There's a bug in 3.0.0 that causes Noise Gate to fail. It has been fixed in 3.0.2 (there are some other bug fixes also). The latest version of Audacity is available from the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/down...
