That's no sound or only the background sound.this morning's clip the RMS was -60.9
That's too far off. I'm betting you're recording the laptop built-in microphones now, not the Yeti. What does it say in the little box next to the microphone symbol up in the Audacity toolbars?-25.3.
That's the setting for my little Shure Brothers USB adapter.
If it's the wrong thing, then you might have gotten Audacity confused in the cable swapping. If you pull the Yeti connection while Audacity is still running, Audacity may "forget" the Yeti connection when you plug it all back in. Make sure everything is plugged in and restart Audacity. Then go back to the little microphone window and see if the Yeti is there. The actual words could be anything.
The software connection for the Behringer devices, for example, says "USB Audio CODEC."
The desperation method is see which devices are listed there (screen grab or write them down). Unplug the Yeti and restart Audacity and one of those devices will be missing. That's the Yeti software connection. Plug the Yeti back in, restart Audacity and select that listing. Tell us what that setting is. I don't have a Yeti.
It will probably not shock you by now that one recommendation is stop using a computer to record your voice. I have a stand-alone Zoom H4 recorder that works a treat and doesn't have all these odd settings and confusing processes. The longest post on the forum is Ian who just wanted to read books from his apartment in Hollywood (the location, not the metaphor). 39 forum chapters and over a year. He's successful, by the way. He's being hired for all sorts of voice work.
Let us know.
