Recording Problem

I’ve been using Audacity for years without any problems. I am now using version 3.0.2. I had a major problem with my computer recently. Since I have reinstalled software Audacity does not record without a lot of muffled “echoey” back ground effects. No matter what I do I can’t get rid of these unwanted effects. Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure [u]Windows “Enhancements”[/u] are turned off.

If that doesn’t help, tell us what you’re recording from. …The mic built-into your laptop? …Streaming audio? …A USB turntable? …Etc.?

If Windows had an issue, the audio configuration may have been disturbed. Check the report: Control Panel → Sound → Recording tab → Stereo Mix → Properties → Events tab → View All Events.

Thanks for the responses. I’ll check those out and get back to you.
