Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Generally speaking a dynamic microphone can be simply plugged into the microphone port of your computer, and all you need is a cable that connects the respective pins correctly. Think of an XLR-to-1/4" patch cable plus a 1/4"-1/8" adapter. Maybe. So, it seems that the Samson mic driver for Win 10 i...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

By the time you need to buy a new laptop there will be Windows 12, probably :wink: Or they will figure out how to make old[er] microphones work correctly (i.e. like in Win 7). So, don't fret it. I think that in the majority of cases the device drivers that worked in Win 7 should just as well work i...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

I also just tried ocenaudio and the sound was muffled, which tells me it's the mic that's the problem and not Audacity. Any suggestions on what I should do next? If you were to take the mic to a BestBuy or something like it, they would probably test the mic in the hope of selling you a new one (the...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Thanks for the suggestions. Since I haven't Skype'd or Facetime'd, I don't have anything to compare the sound quality to. I did try the internal mic - it doesn't have the muffled sound that the Samson does, but it sounds like I'm talking through a tin can. I also just tried ocenaudio and the sound ...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

... I tried closing Audacity and unplugging the mic. Plugged the mic back in, then opened audacity, but it's still very muffled. So frustrating! Is there any other software you could try? Like "Sound Recorder" or Skype or FaceTime... Is there another microphone you could try as well, maybe the buil...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

HI all - need help and I'm not sure if I'm having an Audacity problem or a problem with my mic (Samson Q2u). I just got a new laptop and have installed Audacity, with all of the settings changed according to Librivox recommendations. I did a test recording with my mic, and the recording is sounding...
