My operating system is Windows 10 and my Audacity version is 1.3.14-beta.
I am new to Audacity and I need to use my Clearclick Cassette to USB device to transfer existing sound tracks recorded on cassette to a digital format. I need to monitor the sound track as it is being transferred but when I use the drop-down menu to select “begin monitoring”, I get a loud uncontrolled sound coming from my laptop speaker. How do I avoid this? I’m also confused in how to get the “line-in” option and not a microphone input. A basic guide to set-up for a cassette to digital format would be of great use to me - is there such a guide? All the guides that I have found thus far in the Internet deal with microphone recording which I don’t need. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
