Are you seeing anything on the Audacity meters? Have you selected the correct [u]Recording Device/input[/u] that you’re physically plugged into?

The bass should work exactly like the guitar, so I’ll bet if you unplug the bass and connect the guitar, it’s not working right now either…
I have my bass connected to a virtual preamp as I don’t own a real amp.
What’s a virtual preamp? Is it a USB guitar interface?
When connected to the preamp the bass sounds fine
Is the sound coming from the computer or from the “virtual preamp”?
I am facing a problem recording my bass guitar in Audacity 2.1.3 , win 8.1. I play bass through a virtual preamp like studio devil and as it is, it sounds fine.It sounds fine even when I open my Audacity interface but when I record the bass line and play it back no sound is recorded in fact. What might be the problem?Are there any other ways to record my Washburn 5 string bass with active pickups??Kindly help,I will be much obliged.
