Hello! I’m recording an album, I use Windows 10 and Audacity 2.3.0. I’ve used Audacity for years and haven’t had any problems with it until two days ago. I recorded on Mono with my input being Speakers, and my output Digital Audio, so I can record sound playing from a WAV file. And I’ve done that for years. Now, when I try to record, then play my recording back using speakers as my output (like I always do), the recording will speed up randomly and crackle even though I haven’t changed any playback settings whatsoever. Can anyone help me to fix this?
It sounds like you’ve got some serious [u]dropouts[/u] (buffer overflow)]. Do you have Detect Dropouts enabled?
Dropouts are usually the result of multitasking so it depends on what your computer is doing in the background, or on what other applications you’re running. (Your operating system is always multitasking even if you’re only running one application.)
so I can record sound playing from a WAV file. And I’ve done that for years.
You shouldn’t have to record a WAV file since you already have a digital WAV file that you can open in Audacity.
I don’t know if I have Detect Dropouts enabled, no. Should I? Could you please explain how to access it?
And, also, my bad for giving WAV files as an example… I record audio off of YouTube and other websites 99% of the time anyways haha. I know how to open WAV files.
