Evenin’ gents. Get ready for a stupid question!
Used Audacity for aeons, had a cheapie $10 Labtec mic I could plug in to the Mic outlet, not a problem in the world, composed symphonies on awesome on crappy equipment (my philosophy). Joy.
Upgraded to an Acer computer with Windows 7 (I can stream video at the rate of actual film now!). Got Audacity 2.0. It’s having a [difficult] time even finding my mic. Windows has got it fine: shows up in the audio-fixin’s tray, can adjust volume on it, mic boost, all that. Audacity, try as I might, won’t find it, which I feel is due to the fact that it’s not a “device”. It previously had worked before (never recorded if not plugged in, it could detect the f****r), but now seems to be unwilling/unable to find this. If anyone has solutions/ideas/hilarious ways to mock my hilarious ignorance (hilariously), I’d be much obliged.
Oh, and I have chocolate.
