no blue bars

I have Audacity 2.0.6 from the .exe installer. My red meter bars work, but not the blue ones?

I have lost the blue bars on the recording meter. I only have the red bars. How do I get the blue bars back? Thanks, JR

If you’re live recording, it’s a good idea to pull the sound meters very much bigger than the default. Click on the right edge and pull.


I assume you meant the green bars, the green sound meters. The blue parts of the screen are the blue waves or waveforms. If you stopped getting those, it may be because you’re making a silent or very low volume recording.
