I have two workstations. One runs Audacity 3.3.2,…the other new PC is running 3.4.2. They both employ the same mics ( RE20’s and RE27’s) and are recording with the same parameters set. The newer version now clips EVERYTHING exactly at .5db. WHY is it doing that??? Why did it add some sort of stupidly low threshold? No matter what I try to adjust it will not stop this terrible issue! Changing the recording levels, settings etc has zero effect…going from mono to stereo is NOT a good answer and it did not work anyway. The main thing here is that the older version works on my my older PC.
This is beyond maddening.
