Which version of Audacity are you using? (Look in “Help menu > About Audacity”)

Are you using the same recording / playback devices as previously? What are they?

what steve said…

Sometimes there are update errors or the update is incomplete. Go to Windows > Settings then check for updates (again).

Most people have better luck with the most recent version of Audacity. Currently, it is 2.4.2.

Consider the possibility that it was a coincidence and not related to the update. What would you check then ?

I hope this helps. :smiley:
