I am using Audacity 2.0.6 on an Asus notebook running Windows 8.1
Have been happily using it for months recording drum tracks from a drum machine and bass guitar. I connect the instrument via a cable into a USB port.
Up to now I have had no problem but suddenly yesterday the USB recording device refuses to show in the recording devices section of the devices toolbar - only the internal microphone shows.
I have no idea why - I’m not aware that anything has changed. Everything’s fine another laptop running 2.0.5 and Windows 7 all is still in order - I can record with no difficulty.
Please help - I’ve tried everything I can think of and it’s driving me mad and the wife and dogs don’t like me very much at the moment because it’s making me grumpy.
