I seem to have run into some trouble recording with Audacity ever since I installed FL Studio. It stopped working as soon as I played with some settings in FL Studio, setting the recording driver to ASIO mode. Now, even after changing it back, Audacity will not record anything on my line-in. Anyways, onwards with the relevant information:
OS: Windows 7 SP1
Audacity Version: 2.0.2
FL Studio Version: 10.0.2 Producer Edition
External Sound Card (Recording Device): TASCAM US-122mkII
Internal Sound Card (Playback Device): Asus Xonar DG
Microphone: Shure SM-57
Now, I know the mic is working because whenever I make noise the activity light goes bright on the TASCAM sound card itself. So there’s definitely a signal being sent to the computer. It’s just somehow not being recorded into Audacity.
One additional strange issue (which is hopefully related): When I press “record” in Audacity, the cursor line indicating the length of my recording does not move. It just stays at time 00:00 and blinks a bit, like it’s totally glitching out. This also started at the same time as my recording woes, so maybe that’ll be a handy hint.
My guess is that FL Studio changed some internal Windows settings that Audacity depended on, which broke the recording when I switched to ASIO mode. I’m sure the fix is simple, but I just don’t know what to change amongst the 17 different control panels I’ve been staring at for the past hour.
Any help is much appreciated!
