I am using Audacity to record some old cassette tapes to CDs. I downloaded Audacity about 10 days ago and recorded several cassettes successfully last week.
However, this week I am unable to do. When I click on the record button, all I get is a ‘whistling’ sound, which occurs whether I am trying to record a cassette or not. I have attached a WAV file with this sound, although I have been exporting the cassettes as MP3 files. I have uninstalled Audacity and reinstalled it, but the same problem occurs. I have not made any changes to my speakers in my laptop. I am running Windows 10, and Audacity 2.3.3. Do you have ideas as to what the problem might be and how to solve it please?
Worked out what I was doing wrong, thanks for your help in pointing me in the right direction as to what should be displayed for recording. I have been connecting the cassette recorder AFTER loading Audacity, rather than BEFORE (this week at least!) so Audacity did not recognise it.
I have therefore made notes as to what I should be doing.
