HW = HP Pavilion g6
OS = UbuntuMate 22.04
Audacity = 3.1.0 installed using distribution software center Ubuntu(deb), snapcraft.io latest/edge 3.1.3
Perferences>Devices> Interface Host = ALSA
Using PortAudio V19.7.0-devel, revision unknown
So I jacked output to input and recorded a test tone of 1K sine and I get pops and snaps noise.
There are no choices to change anything like when I had Ubuntu 16.04 and a much older version of Audacity. On that system Default and Pulse would get the snaps and pops noise but when I put it in HDAudio = no noise.
So Audacity won’t run at all without ALSA and there is no choice for me to run HDAudio
ALSA is default.
How do I get rid of the snaps ans pops noise? How do I get the HDAudio option for choice in recording?
Thank you for taking the time to help me.
