Long time user of all the “old” versions of Audacity and I recently built a new computer and cannot get Audacity to work like it used to. Basically, if I start a recording in Audacity and start playing a YouTube video, Audacity seems to be recording everything correctly. But before I even export the file as a MP3, just trying to play the recording in Audacity, the file plays WAY TO FAST. Trying to adjust the time on the Audacity Edit Toolbar doesn’t work. I’ve tried a number of things and can’t figure this out so I thought I would ask the experts.
Some details about the system:
Windows7 x64 SP1
Asus XP Sabretooth MB
I7- 960 Quad Core 12GB RAM
Audacity 2.0.0 (Unicode)
In the “Sound” devices, Playback is Speakers and Recording is “Stereo Mix.” If I play any music or video, the “little green bars” on both the Recording and Playback tabs “bounce” like they’re supposed to.
In Audacity, Recording is set to Stereo Mix / 2 (Stereo) Input Channels. I’ve tried adjusting both the speakers and mic to various settings and the playback is still much faster than what is being recorded. Recording seems to be normal. Waveform looks good, the record meters are “bouncing” like they should.
I do not use iTunes and have no Apple software installed. The system is still pretty virgin with only Office 2010, Adobe Flash, Adobe Master Suite and Firefox installed other than Windows Updates and necessary drivers for the system.
Here is a copy of the Audacity log

Rebooted the system several times and each time I launch Audacity, I get the same issues with recordings. And, Audacity was loaded to the default directory: “C:Program Files (x86)Audacityaudacity.exe”
If anyone has any words of wisdom, it would be appreciated. I have Googled this issue and can’t find a solution and there doesn’t seem to be anything on this board that works.
Anyone? Thanks in advance for your help!
