Unable to hear audio after recording [SOLVED]

I’ve recorded a vinyl from my turntable onto audacity and once I’ve tried exporting onto my desktop I can’t seem to get any audio, can someone please help me I’m still very new at using this program

If you got roughly the right size blue waves and bouncing red recording meters, then you are getting a recording whether or not you can hear it.

Routing sound into Audacity and then hearing it afterwards can be challenging. Did you get the blue waves?


If you recorded the blue waves in Koz’s picture then do you have Windows set to the correct playback device? This is a common problem if you are using a USB turntable. See http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_playback.html#usb.


Thanks for that, keep an eye out for anymore of my posts as I imagine this is only the first hurdle lol

Given this one is solved, I’ll lock the topic to avoid confusion. Please start a new topic if you have more questions.
