sound recording at a lower pitch?

I am using Audacity 2.1.3 on Windows 10 and obtained the .exe file just today

I am having trouble with recording sound.

For some reason whenever I record anything the pitch is reduced in the output sound by a few semitones…

I have found a recording settings in the Preferences, but can’t seem to solve this problem, and I don’t want to be changing the pitch after every time I record…

Please help me as soon as possible,


Tell us what hardware you’re using. It’s usually a hardware or driver problem.

Are you recording on one device (such as a USB microphone) and playing-back on another device (such as your regular soundcard)?
