Hello, I have Windows XP and been using Audacity 1.3.x beta just fine without any issues. Usually to record and simple riff or simple edit an MP3 of one my recordings. I did start recording multiple tracks and was doing just fine. Then today, when I record, the playback sounds distorted. When I stop and press play, the original track sounds fine but what I just recorded sounds sped up and whole step higher in pitch.
When I’m not dubbing tracks, everything sounds fine. Not sure why I had no issues before and now I suddenly can’t add more tracks. I upgraded to Audacity 2.x thinking it would fix whatever is doing this, it did not.
Then today, when I record, the playback sounds distorted.
Record how? Exactly. Part numbers, connections, types of microphones if any.
The playback of the guide track while you’re recording, or the newly recorded track when you finish?
I record directly into to PC with my TAPCO interface. I recorded multiple tracks just fine and made MP3’s with them. Drums, 2 heavy guitars, 2 clean guitars, and 2 keyboard tracks. Then today, I just want to record a new guitar track with the same drum track to play along to, and that’s when I get the issue I described.
Again, when I just record 1 thing, it works fine. When I start dubbing, the playback track gets distorted while what I’m recording sounds fine. When I finish, and play it back, the original playback track sounds fine but what I just recorded sounds sped up and a whole step higher in pitch.
Here’s a video explaining what I’m talking about.
Nothing? No one can help with this issue?
