Wonderful program! I’m on an iMac running 10.6.8 and using Audacity 2.0.2 (should I update to 2.0.3?). I’m recording from old vinyls (Technics SL-30 Direct Drive Turntable hooked up to an Onkyo Amplifier) with a cable from my amp to the sound input jack on the back of my computer. Two questions.
If I play the record and AM NOT recording it with Audacity I CAN NOT hear the music. If I hit the record button, I then hear it. What gives?
When I zoom in to identify and isolate the scratches and other noise on some of my recordings (from vinyl records w/ non-usb turntable) the vertical line that shows the position (can’t recall what you call it) just flies by. I saw a youtube tutorial in which someone was doing the same thing and the cursor(?) did not do that. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the help.
