MacOS: Catalina 10.15.2
Audacity version 2.3.3
I am first-time user of Audacity, have recently downloaded Audacity.
Tried to record my voice without success - recording commences but no sound waves appear and the recording playback is silent.
Audacity - preferences - devices - have checked this, here is the information - host: core audio; Playback device: built-in output; Recording Device: built-in Mic, Channels: 2 (stereo); Latency buffer length 100 ms, compensation -130ms.
Looking at my Mac system preferences, security and privacy - Audacity does not even appear on the list of apps to allow to access my mic.
I have followed the instructions for downloading and accessing the Audacity app.
Have contacted Apple who advise its not an Apple issue (my mic is working).
I would appreciate your help.
