Enabling ASIO in audacity

Hey, I’m using ableton to create music and I am trying to recored it during my show and when I am recording through audcity I am not receving any sound files at all, like the computer is not sending any sounds, although my abletone is working. I am using Focusrite 2i2 along with the ASIO driver. Now I went through the forums and I saw that I need to script due to licenses issues a way that audcity will be complete with ASIO.

To make things short, I need to get audacity to receive sounds through the ASIO driver however I tried my best to link it in the tradionals way but it seems that I need to use outside sources. If anyway know how to address that issues or if I need to used third side scripting or program to get my audcity link with the ASIO driver?
Thanks in advance.

To include ASIO with Audacity, you must compile it yourself. See here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/blob/master/BUILDING.md

If you need it, you can get additional help compiling Audacity and ASIO support on the Windows channel on discord here: https://discord.gg/WnbqpTfk

There’s a brief outline of what needs to be done: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/asio_audio_interface.html

I’ve not yet found up to date detailed information about enabling ASIO, but the main instructions for building Audacity from the source code are here: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/blob/master/BUILDING.md

Note that building C++ applications on Windows requires several large downloads and is not for the faint-hearted.

A bit late on this I’m afraid but I can confirm that I followed the build instructions as of mid August (during the heat wave) and it went OK. I was using a completely new Windows 11 Pro 64 bit platform and can’t add anything more to the instructions referred to above without risking making things more difficult. Just follow step by step not forgetting the option required to include ASIO at the Cmake stage.
