I’m using Audacity 2.3.3 (italian version, downloaded from Microsoft Store) with an USB audio board (Behringer UMC22) and Windows 10 Pro 64bit.
The board is currently selected as input and output device (Windows Direct Sound), the pc integrated audio board is currently disabled to avoid conflicts.
What I’m trying to do:
I would like to record my bass guitar (input #1 of the external board) using a MP3 file as musical base.
To do that I’ve made the following steps:
- import the MP3 file
- added a new track (mono)
Now I have 3 tracks on the screen (Left and Right of the MP3 and my mono track)
When I press “record” I can hear my bass but I can’t hear the MP3 tracks, if I play something on the bass while recording and then I stop the recording and click on “play”, I can hear both MP3 and my bass line.
In the menu “Transport” I had to disable the option “overdub” (I hope the translation is correct, I have menu items in italian) otherwise when I click on “record” an error appears:
- unanticipated host error
- error while opening the input device (or something like that)
Same thing happens if I enable “Software Playthrough”.
What can I do?
Thank you , best regards.
