I am a total newbie to Audacity, and haven’t used any recording programs/equipment in a decade, so I apologize in advance for my ignorance.
Was asked to record two samples. I’m using a cheap tabletop mic, but first one turned out great. Disconnected the mic to do (very basic!) editing, then went back for sample 2.
Something is wrong. Levels are really low no matter how much I project. Room ambiance is much louder. Recording sounds like an echo-y mess.
I know it’s hard to troubleshoot when someone is totally in the dark, but is there a basic setting I could have messed up? A connection I need to check/figure out? I have no idea. If anyone has any ideas of where to start to fix this, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much.
