Re: removing incessant, metronomic clicking

1. Any insights on why this happens would be appreciated (so I can prevent it from happening again). I'm a Windows guy, but don't run any other applications and try to minimize the number of "background" operations. If you are recording at 96kHz or 192kHz, try 48 or 44.1kHz. Try increasing the Late...

Re: My audio changed drastically and I don't know why

I changed nothing in the settings but I can't figure out how to get the audio back to where it was a week ago, Did you use Skype or run any applications that might have monkeyed with your audio settings? What are you recording? Streaming audio? The microphone built-into your laptop? From a USB turn...

Re: One channel lower volume than the other

I'm not sure what's happening, but if want to record the sound coming out of your soundcard and if you have Windows 7 or later, use WASAPI loopback . That should "capture" the digital audio stream without altering it. I am recording audio from a private video meeting software which does not have an ...

Re: Audio sounds strange

Make sure Windows "enhancements" are turned-off. Note that most "studio style" mics are side-address directional mics. Check the specs and make sure you are speaking/singing onto the front side, not the back or the end. Also, note that noise reduction can sometimes damage the audio (especially if th...

Re: Composer name repeating on Multiple export?

Try MP3Tag . It allows you to select all files in a folder at once to edit the common data, then you select one file at a time for the title, track number, or anything else unique to each track. It can be tricky converting between formats because the metadata fields are different. (MP3Tag can handle...

Re: Recording Volume Slider in Linear

I've begun recording audio books and they list all of their requirements, sound wise, in decibels. I need to record at a certain volume, With digital recording, the recording level is not THAT important. Leave some headroom so you don't clip (distort) and adjust the level after recording. And if yo...

Re: Audacity normalize isnt working and noise removal too.

the noise is continuing but isnt showing up so i cant get its profile and remove
Are you saying the audio waveform isn't showing-up, or the effects are not showing-up in the menu? You have to Stop recording/playback before you can apply the effects.

Re: Ambient noise while recording vinyl

So at your direction, I chose the Soundmapper. When I did that and clicked on "start monitoring" there was no indication of any noise coming through, so I thought I had it. But then I set up the laptop (Windows 8.1) to record a song from vinyl using a USB cord; recorded the entire song and when I l...

Re: Recording Cassettes - Doed PC need a sound card?

I've plugged in my lead into the cassette headphones socket and the other end into the PC headphones socket. The sound comes out of the headphone jack. ;) If you have a desktop/tower computer with a regular soundcard, plug the headphone output into the line-input (usually color-coded blue). If you ...

Re: Replicating Audacity's "soft limit" function

Would your client mind if you open the file in Audacity to run the limiter? Will your client know? Does the client get to say what tools you use? see lots of discussion that says a "soft limit" can be replicated using a compressor, That's sort-of true. Limiting is a kind of fast compression. But, it...
