I have been using Audacity for years now and love it. Last year one time it quit recording then started again. In the past 3 months, I have had it quit 3 times. On one occasion I had to do a system restore to get it to work again. Is there anything that can be done? I use it to record mp3 for YouTube.
There are several potential ways of [u]recording the sound coming out of your soundcard[/u].
What method/settings are you using? Are you using WASAPI loopback? If you are using WASAPI loopback you may have to start playback (or otherwise do something to get “sound” from your soundcard) before hitting Record.
Have you changed recording system, or computer in these years of using audacity?
