ok, at the bottom of the audacity screen which normally shows message “recording” I’m receiving a message on occasion that the ‘recording is paused’ it stays for just a second or so if that then disappears. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

converting Vinyl records to mpe format from a ION usb table.
I’ve converted a couple hundred albums before and not seen this message.
Also, it seems to distort the music wobble/flutter etc…
You likely have Sound Activated Recording enabled.
Stop the recording, then uncheck Transport > Transport Options > Sound Activated Recording (on/off).
You can do the same thing by Edit > Preferences > Recording > uncheck Enable Sound Activated Recording.
I hope this helps.
Thanks Jademan for that info. It drove me crazy and I did not see your post explaining the issue. Voila - It’s now working again. I’ve replaced 3 turntables going up the level of value thinking it was related to the recording equipment. You saved the day!!! Returning to the task of recording my massive collection of Vinyl. Fun listening even though the recordings till now sounded like poo! For the life of me I don’t know how that got checked and enabled but it was the culprit.
Well it was a blast for me the last four months working thru the issue… I started with a replacement for my ION usb turntable that died after several years of use. That’s where the issues started. Then moved up to a Sony belt drive turntable - same problems returned, then purchased an Audiotech AT-LP120XUSB. The sound is really good so I didn’t mind the recording of the same albums over and over. Also, I realized it was not the turntable but something with the software. Was interrupted with a few health issues that sidetracked me and delays going thru the returning and replacing of equipment. Funny how life goes by so fast - if you had asked me I thought it was only a few weeks maybe a month ago that I posted the original question… the purity of the senior moments! But all is good that ends well.
Thanks again Mike
