Windows 8 audacity 2.0.5
exe installer or zip? Not sure - downloaded from http://audacityteam.org/ and followed instructions.
Have been used to Audacity over the last year or so but not an experienced user - I simply use it to do the basics that I need it to do and have learned to explore the features and settings. I expect to see the sound waves as soon as something is playing on my computer - this is what I’ve become used to.
However, after loading in the new version as above (to go with my new computer) I’m disappointed that it doesn’t seem to automatically pick up - I’m just getting a blue flat line when I hit record. I have input and output volumes up near the full on mark.
Have tried poking around in edit, but no success thus far.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
