default settings

How do I change the default recording settings so I don’t have to change the voice settings each time I open the program? I have to set the software up so I like the way my voice sounds before recording each time. How do I change the default settings? Thank you, tuk

You can see the cartoon question marks (?) over all our heads because Audacity doesn’t apply effects or filters during recording or in real time.

Fill in the details from the pink band at the top and then exactly which settings you’re trying to make stick? At first pass it sounds like you’re not using Audacity.
