I downloaded Audacity 3.2.1 on a new computer: ASUS VivoBook. I have used it in the past on a MacBook and had no issues. With the new computer (using Windows 11), no sound will play from the Audacity app. I have checked the output and it is set to “speakers (Realtek)”. I can play sound from other applications.
Using both a digital audio interface and the computer’s internal microphone, the tracks show that the computer is picking up the sound and recording it. When I convert the file to an MP3, I can hear it in “groove music”, BUT ONLY WHEN I HAVE USED THE INTERNAL MIC; even though Audacity shows that it picked up sound from the audio interface, and even though a file “plays” when I convert it to an MP3, I can’t hear anything then.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Audacity. I’m wondering if anyone has any ideas what I can do to fix this, or if there’s a problem with the computer itself and I should return it. Feeling totally lost.
Thank you SO MUCH!
