I am on a PC operating Windows 7 Home Premium, and using Audacity 2.0.5. I am wondering if it is possible to employ live audio processing using Audacity, specifically Delay. That is, can I preset Audacity to apply a certain Delay to whatever audio I record instead of having to record the audio first, and then apply the Delay effect to it? I am looking to creating a specific delay effect of 566 milliseconds, which would be 0.00566 seconds, correct?
I have tried selecting Delay when no Audio Track has been created and met with a message that I must select audio first. I have also generated an Audio Track and then tried the same thing, resulting with the same message. I feel like this should possible but I don’t know how to make it happen. Please help me!
Are you trying to make an echo, or just to timeshift the recording? If timeshift, you can do it by generating a track first of all, ensure Transport > Overdub is on, then set a latency correction of your desired positive amount in Recording Preferences. Those are the overdubbing corrections Koz refers to.
