Howdy, my first post anywhere [usually figure things out].
68 yrs old so be easy. I have Win7 64bit Sp1. Turntable Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB using lineout and linein connection to Realtec onboard motherboard [Asus] soundcard. Default settings, read almost all tutorials.
A couple weeks ago with similar turntable [returned due to busted cover] I recorded songs and red clipping marks showed when rec sound went over 1.0 on waveform graph and also when at or over 0dB rec level. Now with replaced turntable when I record same songs at max levels red clip marks never show. ‘Show clipping’ in View is checked and run Analyze ‘Find Clipping’ show no red marks.
Tried recording different combinations of device settings ie mme, win direct sound, and linein Realtec High Def, Direct Sound, all at max rec levels. I don’t believe I have used ‘hard limiter’, unless it’s use is hidden.
Probably the only change in computer since two weeks ago are installing [and tried] 2 programs, Ashampoo Music Studio 5 and Music Edition Free. These programs were not running at any time using Audacity.
Researched over 2 days and I am stumped. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Any added info needed, please advise. Don
