I’m trying to record into audacity for the first time after getting a focusrite scarlett pre-amp and condenser microphone, but the recording is a bit distorted.
I’ve attached a recording so you can hear what I mean. I record in pro tools and it works fine, but not in audacity.
I plug the pre-amp into my Acer laptop via the USB and the microphone plugs into the Pre-amp.
Any ideas what might be wrong?
You got me.
There is a tiny portion of the sound gone every .002 seconds through the whole file. I would have bet that was USB error or other time sharing or data management problem. But that would have affected Pro Tools, too.
As I’m relatively new to all this, I was just wondering how you diagnosed that? I definitely hear the distortion but would have no idea how to identify it or describe it the way you did.
