Strange noise when recording keyboard

Post by altairz » Fri Nov 10, 2017 8:14 pm

Hey!

I tried to record my keyboard, but got the sound that you hear in the sound file "test" here.
It starts good the first second, but then get this strange sound. Why is that?

I have tried other cables and other software, but get the same problem.
Is there a way to fix this, or maybe an alternative way to record sound other than the mic-input on the pc?

Your computer is trying to cancel out your music because it thinks the music is "noise."

Thanks, I followed the guide you linked to, and now it's working correctly :)
I went to the "Enhancements" tab for the microphone and unchecked "sound supression" (or something like that), and then then the problem was gone.
