Hi - As the soundman in my church I am attempting to record sermons. I am using Audacity 2.0.5. My pc is a desktop with Win 7 OS. I set up Audacity and Win 7 to record per the instructions i I found on your website, wiki.audacityteam.org.
My mixer is a Yamaha MG366C. I’m coming out of the mixer’s RECORD OUT jacks with a red and white RCA cable terminating in the pc’s LINE IN jack (blue) with a 1/8 inch TRS plug.
I am using the pc LINE-IN function.
All other settings are per your instructions mentioned above.
The recording starts out okay, but occasionally the record level drops to near zero. This happens several times in a 15-minute sermon. This problem makes the recording unusable. This can be seen on the Audacity waveform display and can also be heard when recording is played back.
I found some advice on your website, and checked all settings, except I cannot find a ‘noise suppression’ setting.
My Win 7 OS is up to date, and as far as I can determine all my drivers are up to date.
Any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance from David at Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church
