I need to use Audacity to record a voice project for school; I need to be able to record while the computer is playing sound. For some reason, I can’t turn off this second function; no matter what, Audacity continues to record whatever sound my computer is playing.
I have turned off “Stereo Mix” for recording devices in Control Panel and have tried every possible combination of the drop-down menus on the Audacity main interface (MME, Windows DirectSound and WASAPI; headset microphone selected). No matter what, the program continues to record both my voice and the system’s sounds (I am also using a headset microphone). Does anyone know how I might shut off the function so that I can play a sound file on the computer and record my voice at the same time, and hear only what the microphone picks up in the recording?
