I’m relatively new to Audacity, but I’m using it in a very simple way for now. I have Audacity running on my computer and I’m conducting a call on a speaker phone and recording through my computer mic. Simple. I’ve used the program a couple of times today with success. Today I conducted a call that was about 50 minutes in length. During the call I was watching the Audacity screen and could see the volume levels going up and down. (Sorry- I know that isn’t very techie.) After completing the call, I exported the call to an MP3 file using Lamb. No problem. However, when I opened the file and listened, there was no sound. I went back to the Audacity which is still open on my desktop. When I went back to the beginning of the recording, I can see that there is nothing there for 24 minutes. It just starts at the 24 minute mark. I didn’t do anything on my end. Is there a length issue that I wasn’t aware of and exceeded. (Like perhaps 30 minutes so I only got the last 30 minutes of my call.) Or I saw something in the FAQs about voice activated recording. But I don’t think that is turned on on my system and the volume didn’t change (so there would be no reason it activated later.)
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
