I have recently installed Audacity 2.2.1 from the standard repository on Linux Ubuntu 18.04.
I followed the official Tutorial (I’m new ), and wanted to make a test recording because I suspected the microphone should be boosted.
When I click on Start Monitoring (for the recording levels) it peaks around -20. Unfortunately the recording volume slider is stuck at max, but I suspect it is just deactivated (I can not move it), and it seems no boost is applied at all.
I have clicked through the settings a couple times already: Is there anywhere I have to enable the user to tweak recording / playback levels? Btw. I can move the latter.
Any other suggestions?
