i installed it through the .exe installer
SO when I record vocals over a beat i have opened in audacity the sound is amplified in the recording (the sound of the beat). As soon as it passes the recording of the vocal in the song it will get quieter because the amplified sound of the beat in the recording isn’t playing. Anyone know why this is? Im pretty new to audacity its probably a simple fix but I cant seem to figure it out. I may not have explained it right but thats the best I can do haha.
What is the make and model number of that interface? If it has none, that may be why you have a problem. Regardless, you can always check (right-click it on the Recording tab of Windows Sound, then Properties, then look at all the tabs).
Right-click the speaker icon by the system clock to get there: Windows Sound.
So we are clear, is the laid-down recording of your voice quieter when the “beat” you are playing in Audacity is quieter? Or is the laid-down recording of your voice at the same level, but hearing your voice while recording is changing level?
Your mixer has a voice cancellation effect, but it appears only to work on inputs fed into the CD or tape inputs.
The level of volume that the beat is at will change on a laid down recording to no recording when there is no recording but the beat it still playing. It wont stay consistent in recording and out of the recording. Thanks, and okay well does that mean ill have to buy a new interface?
I understood that what you were singing was not being recorded consistently?
To be clear, your aim is to record only what you are singing. You do not want to re-record the beat track that is already in Audacity in the new track that you are recording.
Perhaps you could import a beat track into Audacity, then sing and record, then drag-select a few seconds in both the beat track and the recorded track, then File > Export Selected Audio… as WAV. Then attach the WAV file here. We may be able to understand better then.
Well what’s happening is that i have a “beat” playing and I’m recording vocals to certain sections of the song, when my recording is playing so is the best and it amplifies the sound I’ll attach it as a WAV file when I get home later tonight.
so its just the beat that i have opened in audacity plus my vocal recordings but during the recording is amplifies the volume of the beat and when the recording is finished and the song is still going it gets quieter
Hey sorry the audio file wont upload but hopefully the answers to your questions will help.
Im not recording over an existing recording just the beat
I am wearing headphones
