I am really new at this, but I’m trying to learn, and I’m trying to just get past the first step. When I record my voice, microphone input, I hear my voice in real time through my speakers, but the monitored track is delayed about .15 second; it displays late, then when I hit stop the displayed track moves up. In playback the voice heard is .15 second of the displayed track.
It sounds to me like you need to adjust the “latency correction” - have a look at this post:
That post has to do with Audacity 1.3.3. I am using 1.2.6. How do I do adjust latency with that?
In 1.2 you have to do it manually with the “Time Shift tool”, which is a bit of a pain, but can be done if you zoom in close. The principal is the same, (but it’s loads easier in 1.3 )
