This has suddenly just started. Recording music from the PC through WASAPI is terrible. Tried every fix I could fined. Is this something new? Using windows 10, new computer, latest Audacity, reloaded twice, checked sound card all good, doing it on both my computers. I have never had this issue before and I have used it for years. Is it anything to do with this Loop thingy? That is the only thing I can find that might have effected things. Tried all the variables in recording, changed speakers, checked settings in computer. I need to understand what is going on here urgently because I cannot record stuff from one of my Clients who cannot send me audio files. (Dont ask!!!)

See [u]Why do my recordings fade out or sound as if they were made in a tunnel?[/u]

What are you recording from? Your laptop’s internal microphone? An external USB microphone? Streaming audio? Something else?

Is it anything to do with this Loop thingy?

Are you talking about WASAPI Loopback? That records whatever is coming out of your soundcard/speakers and it’s normally used to record streaming audio.
