Audacity cuts off sounds?

Hello, I am running 2.0.5 and just bought a microphone for the first time. when i listen to my playback of a song recording certain parts of my words (often S sounds) are cut off completely, so the song sounds weird and full of half words. Any suggestions? thanks!


Without seeming to sound like it’s going to cure everything, the current Audacity is 2.1.0 which you can get from here.

The installer should ask you if you want to reset your preferences (or something like that, I’m not a Windows elf) say yes.

If you’re on the wrong version, we could start telling you to use tools you haven’t got.


Consider if you need to turn off sound effects and enhancements. Click this link:
