I’m on Windows 7 and have uninstalled my old Audacity and downloaded the latest version from the link on here.
The problem I am having is this:
I record a guitar strumming a set of chords, then finish and rewind to the beginning, then
I click the record button to record a lead pattern whilst listening to the playback of the chords, so it’s 2 separate tracks I’m recording, both of them acoustically through condenser microphone.
But when I click playback, the 2 recordings sound terrible, as if I’m in an echo chamber, I’m fairly new to all this so can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong??
If software playthrough was causing echoes to be recorded as you suggest, that can only mean you are recording the wrong input (or not using headphones, or sending Audacity playback from the mixer back to Audacity to be recorded). If so, you should fix that, otherwise you will still end up recording the previous tracks into the new one.
