After years of using Audacity, I’m suddenly having a problem.
I’m recording my guitar playing, but it’s coming out terrible (and I don’t mean my playing ).
It seems as if when the sound decays, it falls beneath a threshold, where the sound drops out completely, so there is no sustainability of notes that are left “ringing”.
Also, there are drops in volume as I play.
I didn’t see an Environment Tab following your instructions, but I did find a Dell Audio icon in the systray. It show "Conexant Microphone Enhancement (improved quality for recording and two-way voice communication) turned ON, with a preset for Noise Reduction. I might not get back to my project for a couple of days, but when I do, I’ll try turning it off.
My other option, which should have been my first choice anyway, is instead of using my $2 computer mic, running my more professional, higher quality mic, into an external preamp, and into the right/left audio input jacks on my computer. I’d just gone for the simpler setup
