Hi, new to audacity, and have a question, aswell a problem I’ve been experiencing.
I want to attempt a podcast, and I’ve come to terms with having to use my low quality mics, but I have a few problems.
First of all, I am unsure whether I am able to use both my laptop’s in-built microphone AND a line-in mic I have, simultaneously. Both work seperately but I dunno if I can use them both at once.
And secondly, I’ve been having a weird problem. I’ve been sound checking different audio devices that have mics in them. On first use, I can get a good sound out of them (i.e it makes a nice large pattern on the waveform, and I can hear myhself clearly when I play it back), but then, when I attempt to recreate that, I find that when I have the mic the exacts same distance away, and without changing any settings, it’s like the mic can’t hear me. If I tap the mic, or speak loud enough it will eventually register sound, but only as VERY small on the waveform, almost unhearable upon playback. I can hear through my speakers the microphone is picking me up as clearly as before, but Audacity is not. Very annoying.
Hope you can help me guys.
