I get audio by adding 36db added to the volume, but, it then has static, as this attachment shows.
So how can I get the audio with out having to massively increase the volume after recording it, and how do I remove the static?
On Noise removal, does it remember what it learns from past noise profiles, or do I have to make the recording, run the Noise Profile, and then do Step 2 from that same recording? I don’t notice and change when I change the settings on Step 2 and preview it, even though I ran the noise profile through another recording with just the static, and then made a short recording.
Close Audacity and leave it closed. Back to the Mac System Preferences. If you have a UCA202 (as in the illustration) and select USB Audio Codec, you should get healthy, vigorous bouncing blue balls when you play music (or talk or whatever the show is).
If you don’t, then whatever you’re using to make the show is broken or connected wrong.
So moving upstream, where is the show coming from?
There is a sound test for this. Unplug one of the RCA connectors from the UCA202 and lay your earbuds or headphones against the connector like this.
Play the show. You should hear a quiet version of the show in one earbud or headphone. If you hear flat-line nothing, then that’s the problem.
