I do a podcast where I interact with recorded material from the internet (other podcasts, YouTube vids, etc.) With earlier versions of Audacity, I was able to record audio playing on my computer, pause it, and seamlessly interact with the content via my interface setup. Now it seems I have to switch back and forth between the “loopback” setting (to record audio coming from the computer) and the “MME” to record my voice/ commentary through my audio interface setup. Additionally, I do interviews via Skype that I used to be able to record straight into Audacity. Now that can only be done if I use Skype on my smart phone running through my interface.
Is there a setting I’m missing to do this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
