I have been using Audacity since 2015 (Audacity 2.1.0) and have had 0 problems recording multiple tracks.
When I attempted to lay down some new tracks just 1 week ago, I incurred problems when attempting to
add tracks (overdub).
First, I couldn’t hear the rhythm track in the headphones so as to put down the vocals. I contacted Berklee Online tech support (I’m a student)
and they had me go to Edit, click preferences then click recording. Then they had me click BOTH boxes, i.e., Overdub: play all tracks…& Software Playthrough: Listen to input while recording…THE ISSUE: NOT IN SYNC!!! Also, severe echo.
I contacted Berklee again and they had me start playing with the latency factors - once again, no luck.
I contacted my Producer in Nashville and we tried everything he knew and subsequently upgraded to the 2.1.3 version - Same issue.
It has been suggested to download a different program but I’m under the gun to complete this project and cannot deal with learning a new program at this juncture. Besides, I am familiar with Audacity and feel there has to be a fix.
I am and have been using Logitech headphones and a Blue Snowball Ice microphone. Both have USB jacks.
Time is of the essence as I have to complete this project prior to our production session in 2 weeks. Can you HELP me?
