Re: Record streaming audio direct from soundcard - not speakers

Thanks, I did WASAPI loopback also but got the same issue... By "the same issue", I assume that you mean that the recording goes to silence. That "could" be caused by Windows Sound "Enhancements". See here for how to turn off Windows Sound Enhancements: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/faq_recor...

there's a free package manager solution for Win10 people called "Chocolatey".
Do you trust them? What guarantees do you have that your data is secure with them?
I doubt that we could officially endorse them as they are a private company using closed source software which we cannot audit.

Re: PR #835: Basic telemetry for the Audacity

does not want telemetry in Audacity or in any other piece of software they use OK, thanks. I'll count that as a vote for "no telemetry at any price". I would argue that keeping software updated is solely an operating system function I would agree which already exists On Linux only, (unless we offlo...

Re: PR #835: Basic telemetry for the Audacity

Audio applications do not use network functionality. It's a different issue, but we have lots of requests for features such as "automatic update", "export to cloud", "collaborative projects", which require network functionality. We have previously steered away from such features, largely because we...

Re: PR #835: Basic telemetry for the Audacity

As-it-is right now, the code is using Google and Yandex, which is totally unacceptable. For sake of argument, how would you feel if the data being transferred was encrypted so that although Google / Yandex have the IP address (which they can probably get from elsewhere anyway), they have no way to ...

Re: Weird thing on Spectral edit Ver 2.3.1

I can't believe it, actually made my first plugin in Nyquist/Lisp, all 4 lines of it. Congratulations :) However, I don't think that your calculation of Q is correct. I think it should be: Q = sqrt(2 ^ bw) / ((2 ^ bw) - 1) where "bw" is the bandwidth in octaves. In Nyquist: (setf q (/ (sqrt (power ...

Re: how do I read private messages?

What is the process to appeal "Board Warnings"? By being a kind and helpful contributor to this online community. As your reputation grows, so does your access. This forum has been helping Audacity users for nearly 15 years, and has done so by insisting on civil discourse, and a total ban on unauth...

Re: PR #835: Basic telemetry for the Audacity

Probably you are not opposed to limited Google and Yandex telemetry as well. This is getting into more difficult waters. If Google or Yandex have access to the data, and access to the IP address, it's not going to be hard for them to de-anonymise the data. In my opinion that would not be acceptable...

Re: Weird thing on Spectral edit Ver 2.3.1

For example, add 2 to a variable. (sum s-in 2) Yes. LISP uses "s-expressions" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-expression) Would be much more straight forward if it were: (s-in sum 2) or even better, (s-in + 2). That would certainly be more familiar :) However, in languages like C / C++ we see inco...
