Tinny and Echoing Recording

Tinny and Echoing Audio Stream Recording

I’ve used " Free PC Audio Recorder" with no issues except that I do get some distortion in my recordings due to the fact that it does not have any level controls or meters. I thought that I would try “audiocity” but so far I am getting very “tinny sound with echoing” in my recordings I make from live audio streams.

Using Win 7 and audiocity V2.2.2

The record volume levels look good.

Also the software play through is turned off.

Any suggestion or ideas why I am having problems ?

Appreciate your help.

My guess is that you are recording from your laptop’s microphone.

Try using the “WASAPI loopback” method described here: Tutorial - Recording Computer Playback on Windows - Audacity Manual

Scratch your microphone while it’s recording. If the recording explodes, you have your answer. If you don’t know where your microphone is, time to consult your instructions.


Thanks you to everyone’s help. I checked to see the mic was on and it was, so I disabled it.

I will see how it works now.
