another complete newbie question. .

Hi,

I’m using Audacity 1.2.6.

I want to record my own songs. I play metal kind of music and here’s the problem.

When is start recording my guitar directly through my guitar effects pedal, after 3 seconds straight of recording loud guitar chords, the volume decreases and sound becomes really bassy from the 3rd second onward.

It’s not the guitar because I’ve tried recording vocals using a microphone to the mixer then to the pc and the same thing happens.

Can someone help me please?

Need a few more odds and ends.

Windows and which one?

Kind of computer?

You have a Line-Out from your music equipment and you’re plugged into the Line-In of the computer (I’m pretty sure that’s not true but I have to ask it anyway)?
