I’m trying to record my LP’s but experienced very high levels of distortion and it appears the sound levels are too high!. I have read many forum posts, user manuals etc for tips and advice but still no joy! Please help.
I’m using a Jamm USB turntable and Compaq Presario cq 56 laptop
I have set Audacity levels through the preferences as follows:-
Playback Device-Speakers and Headphones (IDT Hi
Recording Device-Microphone (USB Audio CODEC)
Recording Device-Channels 2(Stereo)
Quality 44100Hz 32bit float
Output and Microphone set at 1.0
PC SETTINGS-control panel-sound-playback= Speakers and Headphones
" " Recording=Stereo Mix IDT High Tech Audio CODEC
I’m not very technical minded so would welcome any suggestions advice.
