No similar problem after search…

Sometimes when recording from YouTube or Spotify, using WASAPI, the loopback setting for my interface and stereo, I get reverb/echo in my recordings. It is such good reverb/echo that I have to check to original recording to see if it has it as per normal. Since some of my recordings are Hi-Def, I’d prefer not to add what isn’t there. What might my problem be?

If i move the volume slider down or up, a few seconds later the Recording slider adjusts to equal it. I thought that sliding the playback slider down might lessen the echo.

Any ideas?

#1 Ensure software playthrough is unchecked in Audacity preferences.
#2 See if Windows &/or OtherSoftware is applying an echo/reverb enhancement, if so turn it off.
