Since changing from a tower to a desktop Ive noticed a big deteoration in the quality of audio using audacity. This seems to be because both my record options (windows direct sound and MME) use the internal computer microphone to record sound. Ive tried disabling/disconnecting the microphone in control panel but no record source is then detected!!
Have I missed something? Is it not possible just to record the sound as it streams through the sound card without the extra unwanted environmental noise from the microphone? Can I add other record sources that audacity will recognise that doesn’t include the microphone input and just the audio stream from whatever source I choose?
Any help or advise very much appreciated
