plz anyone temme what are the settings and all…???


Let me guess at the rest of that.

“I’ve been recording singing into my microphone and I bought a USB soundcard so I can record my electric guitar at the same time.”

Audacity can’t record from more than one “thing.” So you can record from your built-in microphone or your guitar. Generally not both unless you have a sound mixer and one mixed connection to the computer.

If I guessed wrong, fill in the details of your shoot. Model numbers, makers, types of connection.
