Audacity input levels change with every new song

I'm using an older sound blaster and an older dell with xp. Getting the sound in through my stereo is no problem, but the levels keep changing all by themselves, going up until there is total distortion. then i can manually bring them back down. The only input selection in audacity that works is ''stereo mix'' my volume control lists no stereo mix.

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.

Behringer mixer Eurorack UB802 is losing partial stereo signal in one channel. When I record (audacity software) I can hear both channels but displays one channel. Is it my computer's audio jack t


Sounds like the output cable from the 802 is not correctly pinned to your input on the computer. Fred is on the right track but you may need to take it a bit further.
It may also be helpful to use a Pro USB audio interface such as the Digigram UAX220v2 (line level version).
If you wish to use the computer's on board sound card consider an IHF/Pro interface that converts balanced audio to unbalanced , and the proper cables. Two 3-wire balanced 1/4-inch from the 802 to the left and right inputs of the interface (XLR Male), then RCA (Red and White) to a 1/8-inch TRS Plug cable onto the the computers audio input.
Henry Engineering's Matchbox HD comes to mind.
Good Luck.

Transfer music form fostex 440 to a PC


Step one- download the open source program Audacity. http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/?source=directory
Get an 1/8 inch stereo jack to stereo RCA outputs (some digital cameras with vieo capability have these cords.)
Plug your tape deck "Line Out" to the "microphone" input of your sound card if it does not have a "Line level Input." You will have to adjust the microphone level once you enable it in the microsoft windows audio settings accessible through the control panel file.

If you are using a mac, you will have to open the CDEV to set it up.

Then it is simply a matter of getting used to using the program, which does not take too long. Just remember to save either each tape side or each song as it's own project.

All open audio files in the display will play simulataneously, which is why you want to close them and start new.

If you need other tweeking types of programs to reduce hiss or potentially disk pops, there are some offerings also at sourceforge http://sourceforge.net They cater to Windows, linux and Mac.

The sampling rate you choose- if not variable- will affect sound quality and file size.

Can I record in stereo via the microphone/line-in jack? On the the Sigmatel interface when Line In is selected, I get no signal on either Audacity or Sound recorder software - but I do get a mono signal...


The input-level from a (monophonic) microphone is MUCH less than the input-level from a device (cassette player?) connected to the (stereophonic) LINE-IN socket.

So, crank-up the slider, to amplify the input.

Make sure that you're connecting into the LINE-IN port, if you want to record in stereo.

How do I find out what specs my sound card has? have a Dell lattitude 6400 and am considering buying software which requires Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 or equivalent sound card supporting 16-bit...


Your laptop has a High Definition integrated sound card which will do just fine for low-to mid end recording. You'll just need to hook up your audio source to the Microphone input on your laptop using a standard DIN plug, just like the one used for headphones. Usually the plug is a stereo input so you can have full stereo recording using the Microphone input.

Is there a stereo input for the Dell Inspiron 1100 to record?


Yes, the input is stereo BUT you need to configure Audacity to do the stereo capture. Go to File > Preferences. Once in the preferences dialog, go to the third Drop-down menu, and change from MONO to 2-channel stereo. That is.

Trouble recording records


When recording from a phonograph, I use the following items.
5220ee0.jpg
Depending on the phonograph whether or not it's MC or MM makes a difference in sound although most can't tell the difference. Also, you need to know if your phonograph requires a pre-pre amp or if that pre-pre amp is built in and the line coming out is at line level. The Rolls item is a pre-pre amp unit which takes to older phonographs signal level to that of input levels which allow the phonograph to be connected to any aux line in.

On the back of the computer, you can plug the RCA jacks from the phonograph into the adapter and directly into your computer via the MIC (usually pink) input. Most of the time this is sufficient. If the volume is too loud, or sounds horrible, chances are you have a pre-pre amp and you then plug it into the line in (usually blue)

First I would connect the RCA's from the phonograph to the adapter and plug it into the mic and see how the sound is.

Keep in mind that you do not use the ROLLs unit when connecting this way. If it's too loud or distorted, plug it into the line in.

For recording, you can download Audacity which is free and a wonderful editing program.
