I just purchased an ION Tape Express to digitize a collection of cassettes of interviews with deceased family members. I was planning to use the included software, but it turns out to be a nightmare, so I’m hoping to use Audacity instead.
When I connect the ION via USB, Audacity recognizes it in the list of microphone inputs. However, when I press play on the device, no audio is registered in Audacity. I’ve just downloaded the most recent version of the software (2.1.2) hoping that would help, but same issue. I’m on a Mac using El Capitan (10.11.6).
A screenshot is attached of what I see when I hit play on the ION and record in Audacity.
Any help is much appreciated!
