Recording volume not editable?

Win 8.1
.exe version

When selecting Windows WASAPI as audio host and speaker/headphone as recording device, I can’t seem to edit the recording volume.
What can I do? I’m fairly new to some of Audacity’s feature. Please help.


With WASAPI loopback you are digitally capturing whatever’s going to your computer speakers. The recording volume goes up & down when you adjust the playback volume.

Adjusting playback volume seems to not do anything at all. I never encountered this “problem” in the past.

Also, this may be irrelevant but WASAPI doesn’t seem to capture anything at all for some reason.


Wait, wait, wait, wait…
Please disregard my previous reply!

It’s suddenly working for some reason.
And I can adjust the recording volume now.
