I have a couple of problems digitalising vinyl. I use a USB turntable and a Mac Book Pro. And audacity 2.
One thing is, input doesn’t seem to have a fixed volume. When audacity records a track, it records the volume that is set on my amplifier. Which means I have to record at a pretty high level to have a reasonable result compared to other tracks I collect in iTunes and such. And it doesn’t matter at which level I set the input on audacity, .7 or .8. This surely should work otherwise.
Also while audacity records a track, I discovered listening back afterwards, background noise crept in - my footsteps and such. I seem to be recording vinyl and myself simultaneously.
How can I solve these problems? I’m a beginner and not very proficient with audacity and such, as you might have guessed.
Thank you very much.
