Question about Edirol UA-4FX External Sound System
In Audacity, I go to Edit-Audacity Preferences, using my new Dell C-521 PC. Under "Playback Devices" the list of devices includes "Speakers (UA-4FX)." But no UA-4FX is listed under "Recording Devices." On my Lenovo laptop, my UA-4FX workds fine. (It IS listed on my laptop as a recording device.) Any ideas what I am doing wrong on my desktop PC?
You need to install the driver accordingly, When you buy the product it
comes with installation Disk. If you dont have it now still you have
solution simply download the driver from the manufacturer's website

Tips for a great answer:
There are two separate settings in control panel for record and playback - see below
a microphone with computer
To use any microphone with your
computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following
instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
In Sounds & Audio Devices
Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure
that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list
of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.
Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't
checked before closing the window.
Now click the VOLUME button in the
SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording
(as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).
NOTE if your microphone
is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES
on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list
entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same
applies for Internal mic.
That should be it.
To adjust audio volume generally.
Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume
as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust
slider to suit.
You might put a check mark in the box
to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make
adjustments in the future.
