Feedback when trying to record with Audacity

I am using a LogitcPro5000 camera, which has always worked fine with regards to video and recording quality. Today, when I attempted to use audacity, I was confronted with a strange feedback sound that essentially drowns out my voice in the recording. I tried reinstalling the software with updated drivers, but this sound remains, both when using the Microsoft sound recorder and audacity. Is this a common problem? Do you have any advice as to how to solve it?

    I have tried to adjust the sound levels to the mic's pamphlet recommendations, but it's either too soft or too loud with feedback. Do I need to uninstall the mic and start over? I wasn't having problems two days ago, and now I have problems when I record.

Try turning down your speaker volume. This can cause feedback and is what the problem is.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I switch off the microphone to stop the speakers feeding back on my laptop. And how to set the levels when I am recording, to stop feedback.


I think it won't be possible to get rid of the feedback and quality will be poor when recording this way. Try software like Audacity and set the audio source to record directly from the sound card. The input device should be set to "Windows WASAPI" for Windows and output set to a loopback device.

I cant get line in recording to go to 320kbps


Hi,

I think you have installed the UMS firmware on your iRiver, right? That firmware, for whatever reason, limits the recording to 96kbps. Using the standard firmware, you can record up to 320kbps @ 44.1 kHz.

try upgrading Audacity and have a ponder about reverting back from the UMS settings.

Goodluck..

How to transfer vinyl to cd-simply-I have manual but very confusing-simple step by step needed-thank you-Al B


The popular recording software known as Audacity is a good choice for getting all sorts of sounds saved in a digital format. The easy-to-use features of this program will help you to create complex musical compositions, or just record incoming audio streams. One of the basic things you can do with Audacity is to record sound from vinyl records. Many people still keep vinyls on hand, though the production of this medium has diminished. Here are the basic steps that will help you to use Audacity to record vinyl.

Steps

  1. Get your phonograph or record player. Assemble your collection of records and make sure that your record player is in good functioning condition.

  2. Use a cable to connect your record player to the computer with Audacity installed on it. In order to record from vinyl, you'll need to make sure you have accurately connected your record player as an incoming audio stream into the microphone jack of your computer.

    • Use hardware adapters to secure your cable connection. Many older record players utilize a 1/4-sized input jack. The modern laptop computer, as well as many desktop models, use a smaller, 1/8-sized input jack. You can buy simple adapters at your local electronics store to fix this problem.

    • Make sure that your cables and adapters support stereo.


  3. Open the Audacity program on your computer. You will see the signature Audacity screen, with controls at the top, and an empty space to accommodate created tracks.

  4. Start playing the record on your record player.

  5. Hit the red circle that represents the "record" button in Audacity.

  6. Observe the sound coming into Audacity. You should see the track being populated with sound, represented by a fluctuating line as the cursor moves along.

  7. Hit "Stop" to stop the recording.

  8. Stop the record player.

  9. Repeat this process with the entire track. Reset the record player, start playing and hit the Audacity "Record" button again, allowing the entire track to populate with the sound of the vinyl record.

  10. Save your project in your desired format. Audacity supports a number of file formats for the finished product. You can select one of these when you have recorded the entire track. Make every song its own track, or simply record the entire side of the record on one track.

Sound noise feedback during recording


Noise can be a big problem when trying to record into a computer. Reducing and canceling out noise using several simple techniques will help increase recording quality and increase your satisfaction with recordings. Solutions range from complete room overhauls to simple changes in the placement of the microphone and other objects in the recording.


Use a stabilized microphone to reduce vibrations. Many hand-held or headset microphones will pick up on vibrations and movements from the user. These vibrations can carry over into the recording and reduce the quality of the recording. Using a microphone stand or stationary microphone will reduce noise while recording. Mic stands will help increase recording quality and off a possible solution that requires very little financial investment. Set up a designated sound room that is set away from the rest of your home. The farther the recording area is from windows and doorways, the better. Windows allow very small amounts of noise to filter in from the outdoors and create white noise in the recording. Hang blankets on the walls around the recording station and use many rough objects in the recording room. Sound travels in waves that bounce back and forth between smooth objects. Blankets and other rough objects will help reduce sound vibrations. These additions to the recording room will reduce ambient sounds from both the room and outside the building by blocking sound waves from bouncing back and forth in the room. If you can make a considerable investment in the room, there are several acoustic products on the market than help nearly eliminate echoes and outside noises. Install software that filters out unwanted sounds and echoes. Many computer applications exist that use programs to increase the quality of recordings and reduce the ambient noise levels in a recording room. Software is used to reduce echoes and feedback in a recording studio. Several free applications can be used to achieve the desired effects when recording. A program called Audacity is one of the most effective software packages that can help reduce noise in recordings. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Software can also be used to reduce electronic humming and other white noise that can be picked up during a recoding session. Buy a high-quality microphone with noise and echo cancellation. One of the best investments that a recording specialist can make is a high-quality mic. The microphone itself can reduce many unwanted noises and echoes in the recording room by filtering the actual sounds that are recorded.

Getting lidl silvercrest turntable / audacity to transfer records to computer


Assuming you've installed the Audacity software, first check your recording device. If you use Windows, first check the Audio Control Panel. For Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under Sound, click on the Manage Audio Devices link. In that window, click on the Recording tab. Select the USB option and make it the active device.

In Audacity, you may also need to make sure that this is the recording device that is active. That should be the third drop down from the left in the Device Toolbar. (If it isn't visible, click View > Toolbars and check it.) The Device Toolbar is right above the recording trace section in my version of Audacity.

Now click Record (the red circle) and start your turntable. Do you see a change in the trace? You should see a flat line for up to 10 seconds and then see this change to a set of high and low values.

If you don't get this, check if your USB ports are working. If you use a USB hub, try a direct connection. Check the device manager under Universal Serial Bus for a triangle with a red x or a yellow triangle. Try updating the driver by right clicking on the device. Also check Windows Update (for an optional update) or your computer manufacturer site for a new driver.

Unfortunately with the USB, you can't hear the recording as it is made. Do a short recording and then stop it. Then play back the selection. Adjust the input volume level lower if your trace is hitting the top of the box. This is clipping and your recording won't include the full signal from your record.

I've used Audacity for recording cassettes through the line in port. You can do this with some turntables if you add a pre-amplifier and use RCA to 3.5 mm adapter. Connect to the line in on the back of the desktop (blue).

If you could not install Audacity, go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ to get a version that works on your computer's OS.

I hope this helps.

How to record music on ThinkPad!! Thanks


1) Turn on your mic 2) Start windows sound recorder 3) Start recording 4) Jam out on your instrument(s) 5) Stop recording 6) ... 7) Profit
In truth, this is a terrible device to record music on. You should look into getting a mixer (with as many tracks as you need) and a dedicated computer with a high quality sound card (M-Audio) is a good brand.
If you're thinking about making electronic music, look into FL Studio. http://flstudio.image-line.com/

No sound coming through when recording from hi fi tape to computer


This is actually simple to do. Connect the line out on your tape player to the line in on your computer. Then download a free program, from the net called Audacity at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. The program is totally free and works great. Some recording studios use this program. In the middle of the main Window on Audacity set it to record from Line in. This is from the small drop down menu next to the little microphone icon. Then hit the record button on Audacity and play your tape. You can record each song individually or you can record the whole side of the tape at once and separate the tracks when you save them. You can even use this program to clean up the sound on your recordings. I have transferred many of my tapes and records to CD using this process. I hope I have been helpful and good luck

Playback difficulties


Not specific enough but I would run a head cleaner thru it for 10 seconds and see if that improves things and always use the same brand of tape to prevent gum issues.
