Using Audacity 2.1.0 on Windows 8.1. I’m using Audacity to create MP3s from my vinyl collection - and I’m having no trouble doing so. However, I can’t hear the audio during recording, and wanted to know whether this was possible. I have no problem listening to the recorded WAV file through the computer speakers whilst editing. Probably a simple settings issue which I haven’t fathomed?
You need to set Software Playthrough to on" in the Transport menu - see this page in the Manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/transport_menu.html
This set of tutorials from the Manual is likely to be useful to you: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/tutorial_copying_tapes_lps_or_minidiscs_to_cd.html
Thank you, that’s fixed it…
