So since I got Windows 10, I’ve been having a little bit of a headache with Audacity, for the record, I don’t really have a mic though I do plan to have one (I currently use the Kraken Pro headset), but that didn’t stop me before of making a vídeo with good áudio, I used to record the áudio on Audacity separaterely (on Windows 8.1) and then just apply noise reduction, and voilá, a vídeo with a pretty satisfatory áudio, here’s one exemple:
The voice there is fine, there’s a very little sound on the background, but it doesn’t interfere with anything.
Now when I installed Windows 10 and Audacity, I noticed something, the noise reduction doesn’t apply the same way, now when I apply it, it gives the voice a sort of echo-y feel to it which is quite annoying, though the program is exactly the same version, I’d like to know if anyone can help me out with this issue.
Here are two tracks, both on the current Audacity I have, one without Noise Reduction, and one with Noise Reduction:
You’re not recording from the microphone you think you are: that’s not the headset-mic , that’s probably a recording from the mic built-into the computer, the echo is from the room you are in. You need to enable the headset-mic in Windows recording-devices , and choose the headset-mic as the device to record from.
