Sorry, rookie question here.
I can’t get Audacity to record live audio and I am not sure why.
Does it mean that I have not got a soundcard? I’ve looked under “sound, video and game controllers” and it just says “Realtek High Definition Audio”. Does that mean that I do not have one?
If I do need to get one, what is a decent spec for a soundcard that just needs to record speech please?
Do you have a microphone or a laptop with a built-in microphone? We may need some more details about your hardware setup.
You’ll need to select the microphone (or microphone input, etc.) as your [u]recording device[/u].
If you still have trouble see [u]Microphone problems after the Windows 10 April 2018 Update[/u]
Amazing, I think that may be it. Thank you! I’ve changed the privacy settings and the in-built mic works. Yet to test the audio interface as I am off to work but it looks promising.
