Hello! So my problem is this one. I was recording something and when I wanted to hear what I’ve recorded suddenly I got a message which was saying: “Error while opening sound device. Please check the output device settings and the project sample rate.” I immediately went on the internet and searched for the problem but all the help was for older versions of the Audacity. I have Windows 8 and I’m using Audacity 2.0.5. Can someone please help?
Please try the 2.0.5 Manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_errors.html#sound_device .
If you are recording with a USB device this may have changed your system playback device. You may need to choose your built-in speakers or headphones by name in the second box of Audacity’s Device Toolbar . See http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_playback.html#usb .
If you need more help after reading the above, please tell us what playback device you are trying to use.
