I have been trying to use a USB microphone which is a Samson CO1U USB Studio Condensor mic.
I’m having some issues with the waveform on Audacity when recording.
The mic is set up and audacity recognises it and will record my voice.
When I have the recording amount at about 90%, it records at a really quiet volume (picture 1 highlighted) whereas when I have the recording amount at 100% (picture 2 highlighted) it peaks horribly and sound terrible.
I am speaking at the same volume in both clips and are compared together in picture 2.
Any idea why this is? Apologies if it’s a really basic question!
