I am just getting started with Audacity.
I’m trying to record audio out of my guitar amplifier. It has a USB out for just this type of thing.
I’ve opened Audacity and checked that my Mac Book Pro (Laptop 2011) sees it. It does. However, I can’t get audio through it to record in Audacity.
If I switch to built in microphone, then I can see the recoding, but it’s just through the internal microphone and not through the USB input.
I checked the audio permissions in the Apple System Preference panel. It shows my Amp. So, the computer sees it. I checked the privacy and security panel after seeing a similar post. However, under the privacy tab I do not see the microphone icon in the list.
Any ideas what I am missing?
-Thank you in advance-
Audacity just records what is sent to it. The volume is generally set prior to the USB port. In this case, the volume will be set in your amp. Try turning down the volume on your guitar and/or your amp. I am sure you will find the right combination of settings.
