Seemingly overnight my ability to record on audacity has stopped. I’m currently using a Behringer Xenyx QX2442 plugged into my Dell XPS via USB. Yesterday I was able to record vocals and guitar without issue, and have been for almost a year with this computer. Today, I went to record some random things and i’m totally unable to. The vocals sounds like they’re being filtered through a noise suppression program, and when I try and play guitar, it will pick up the first note (barely) and then stop picking up the guitar completely all the while still recording. I’ve gone through and tried everything at this point. I’ve restarted my computer a million times, reinstalled audacity, stopped and restarted different drivers, turned audio enhancements off, changed things to mono, back to stereo, back to mono, I’ve made sure my bluetooth was turned off, I’ve made sure no other programs that could use the microphone in the background were turned off. I’m completely at a loss, I changed nothing yesterday.
I then plugged in my Lenovo laptop into the mixer via USB to make sure something didn’t go wrong in the mixer, and was able to record flawlessly.
I’m really lost at this point, any help would be greatly appreciated.
