Echo/Reverb When I Record Using Stereo Mix

Good evening,

I’m unsure if this has been brought up already. I searched through the forum before posting. This is my first time encountering this. I used Audacity for years and I never had this happen. When I try to record using Stereo Mix, I get this horrible echo/reverb effect. I am unsure why this is happening. I just updated to the latest version. I attached what the Audacity dash looks like and it’s basically the same settings I always have and a recording sample. I’m using Windows 10.


Turn OFF [u]software playthrough[/u]. It creates a feedback loop when you record the sound coming out of your soundcard.


Thank you for the help. I wouldn’t have figured it out without your help. Works fine now.
