No Sound After Converting

Hi! I have recently installed audacity. I can record and hear files fine when they are in the Audacity program, but whenever I export files, no matter which kind that I convert them to, the tracks are silent. Please help! Thank you!


While you’re recording, does Audacity look something like this…

If not, then you’re not actually making a recording in Audacity. It’s possible to configure Windows so all the sound systems seem to work, but Audacity doesn’t get any music.

Windows Control Panel

What are you recording and in what formats do you export? We live on tiny details.


Two of the most important pieces of information are missing: audacity version and operating system.

In which program are you trying to play the exported files?

If you import the exported files back into audacity do they play?
