Recording with Electric Drumset

I just got an electric drumset for Christmas, so the first thing I wanted to do was to cover songs. But I can’t record them with a regular mic, considering all it will record are taps on rubber pads. So I bought a USB cable that connects the drum module directly with my laptop, but when I tried to record it didn’t record anything. It just recorded from my laptop’s built-in microphone.

I bought a USB 2.0 cable.

So how do I record the actual drumset tunes into Audacity?

You need to tell Windows (I’m assuming) to watch the USB input rather than the built-in microphone.

Windows Control Panel

You may also have to go to the Audacity Preferences and change that to match. Restart Audacity.
