Recording my harmonica

I am new to Audacity and I am having trouble recording my harmonica. I can record my voice ok but not the harmonica. It only picks up a few notes here and there will long periods of no sounds. Any suggestions?

Turn OFF Windows “Enhancements”.

…Microsoft seems to be getting better-and-better at filtering out the “noise” from the spoken voice. :roll_eyes:

I’m anxious to hear the answer to this one. I try to record myself whistling, but it is barely audibly and distorted. Same issue I think.

I received advice in this forum on why I was unable to record my harmonica and it worked perfectly. I went into Settings>System>sound and selected my microphone. Then I went into properties where I saw Audio Enhancements and selected off. After that I am able to record my harmonica. Thank you!
