Up until recently I’ve had no problems with Audacity. However somehow I’ve managed to change the settings either on my audacity program or laptop. Whats happening is that whenever I want to record samples from a CD or youtube etc using the stereo mix or microphone setting audacity records external sounds also (if I tap my fingers, talk etc) So it will pick up the sound of a CD for example along with any external sounds. I turned off the internal mike on my laptop expecting the problem to be solved but its still happening. Having software playthrough turned off makes no difference. I recently installed software for an AMON soundcard. Would this have caused it? What the hell is going on?
Possibly. Can you do a system restore, or uninstall that software and see if it solves the problem.
Hay Steve. I uninstalled AMON but its still happening?? I bet there is a simple solution to it. i just wish I knew what it was!
Trying to catch up with what you’ve tried already:
How did you do that?
This is a very old thread (over 2 years old). You should start a new thread describing your problem, audacity version and operating system, as well as equipment used and how you connect it to your computer.
