Audacity/Sound Recording Problems
 
Right, I have used Audacity to record 8 out of the 10 songs I have deemed good enough to record. On the 8 tracks, the sound quality has been fine, my microphone has picked the sound I want, at good quality.

However, recently while coming to record the ninth song, I'll record the track and, on playback, the audio is absolutely fine for the first 3 or 4 seconds, but afterwards I get this sudden drop in quality, where the audio goes quieter and it sounds like I'm recording underwater.

The best I can describe it is a sudden quietening and the addition of a metallic reverb that overall makes the audio quality horribly tinny.

It's definitely not the microphone, because this happens with whatever mic I use for it.
It's definitely not the connection in the audio jack, because it happens with the integrated microphones on my laptop
And it doesn't seem like it's anything to do with Audacity because the same thing happens in Windows Sound Recorder.

Now, I know my laptop is on its way out, and so I'm wondering if this is a driver issue, or that the sound card is on the blink.
But I know nothing about that, so forum, I would like your help.

What is wrong with it? and how do I fix it?

Would need more information, really...

Have you tried recording at a lower sampling rate and seeing if the problem persists?

I have tried recording at all available sampling rates.

How much free space are you recording onto?

I have about 40Gb free on my hard drive and 2Gb RAM to play with

Eh, considering it was a 160Gb hard drive... I only have 40Gb because I cleared a load of stuff off of it

WELL SHIT I DUNNO

TRY UPDATING YOUR DRIVERS OR SOME SHIT LIKE THAT

JesusRocks 04-19-2010 03:00 PM

there aren't any driver updates for it.

thanks for trying though.

I'mma just get a new laptop :V

You sometimes get that when the audio peaks at it's loudest and you try to lower the volume.
That's all I can offer :V

ok, rather than make new thread, I will highjack this one

got audacity and got similar problem, basically whenever I click to record, it comes up with this message:-

Quote:

"Error while opening sound device. Please check the output device settings and the project sample rate."
=Did this and all systems are fine and go-go other than fact that for some reason cannot find my microphone, so did little more research and found common problem for lot of people, who said that a JACK system was cause of problem as incompatible with audacity, and disabling this system would remove problem, however I have looked and looked for mr JACK and not found him, anyone got idea's where else I could look?

(microphone fine and tested on other systems)

I'm not sure what version you are using but you could try this

Have you checked that something is not temporarily covering the internal mic every now and then?

wow the BT-helplines have nothing on the ineffectual nature of your advise :smiley7: (but yes the mic was working, though think the fact this was software problem sort of allluded to that point <_<....oh and sorted it now, but takes hours to do, so my advise to anyone else who gets this problem, get another verison of audacity)
