Re: Audacity won't record sound in Win 7

It just sits, there's no blue flat line or anything. That concerns me because, in Linux, even if I hit record without turning the mic on it showed the blue flat line. Yes, as stated in my original post, sound recorded in the Windows 7 voice recorder just fine with no issues. So I know the mic is wor...

Re: Audacity won't record sound in Win 7

Yes. I even restarted my computer just to be sure (reboot is a good solution from time to time). No dice.

Audacity won't record sound in Win 7

My old Linux laptop produces a static buzz when using it so I tried to use my Windows 7 desktop to record my 1 minute test. Only Audacity won't record any noise at all. It won't even show a flat line, it won't show anything when I hit record. It's like the program is frozen doing nothing at all, and...

Re: 1 minute test

Thank you, will do! I was worried about the sound level itself as well, but the wiki specifically said between .5 and 1 on Audacity, and I'm known for liking softer volumes than most people, so I just went with that. I'm going to try recording on my desktop tonight, that should get rid of the buzz i...

1 minute test

Recorded on a Linux laptop in Audacity. Given the slight background noise I'm thinking that there may be a loose wire somewhere (old laptop), and I may try again once I get software updated on my desktop and see if that resolves the issue.

Re: One Book A Week Club 2018

I've read 'Wishful Drinking' and 'Station Eleven' so far this year. I'm currently listening to 'The Count of Monte Cristo' and 'The Jakarta Pandemic', and reading 'Before We Were Yours'. 'Wishful Drinking' was great fun, but it made me tear up. 'Station Eleven' was absolutely amazing. It's about a f...

Salutations from Japan!

I'm an English teacher in Japan (my Japanese isn't good enough to record book in Japanese, sorry), and I've been listening to Librivox for nearly a decade now. And, after spending the last year being a classroom tape recorder, I've decided to give back! Looking forward to beginning to learn how to w...
