Problem recording vinyl


I’m sure there is a simple solution to this. I want to record my vinyl collection and have just downloaded the latest version of Audacity. I’ve followed the instructions for the right settings but when I hit the record button, the blue pause button stays on. It goes off intermittently and when I play back the recording, it just plays back the patches when the pause button was off. I originally used Audacity 1.26 with no problem. My computer is an HP Media Center PC m7250n running on Windows XP. Any advice/suggestions, greatly appreciated!


Look in the Transport menu and ensure that “Sound Activated Recording” is not selected.

Thanks Steve, recording as I type this. 2.02 is definitely better than 1.26. :smiley:
