Lose of crash on electronic drumkit-recording

As the title states I have a problem with the sound of my crash fading out whilst recording.
I am trying to record the drumtrack for a drum cover, but when I start to ride on my crash, it quickly fades out.
I can however still hear the crash perfectly fine whilst playing, even though my monitor and the recording use the same output, so it must be a problem with the recording.
I am using version 2.0.5 on windows 8.0.
I’m recording from an electronic drumkit with the Roland TD-9 Module. I’ve connected the headphone-output to the microphone-input on my MSI GE70 laptop, where I use audacity to record.
I’ve tried a bunch of different recording-settings, but nothing seems to work.
I did this exact same thing 3 years ago on my old laptop with no problems.
I’ve attached a very short WAV-file, where you can hear the crash at the start and then how it fades out over a few seconds. It is still there, but not at all with the right sound.
I hope someone has an idea for something I can try, I’ve run out of ideas myself :frowning:

Which is likely to lead to poor quality and isn’t stereo if it was intended to be (both left and right are identical in your sample).

If you must do that, try turning off Windows Sound Enhancements .

Can you bounce the sound as a WAV instead of record it? If not you may do better trying to record the sound as it plays - see http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html .
