    no sound in audacity

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have been converting cassette to digital for the past few years with no problem. I have a cassette deck, behringer u control, and audacity. Out of the blue, I see the audacity wave recording like normal, but there is absolutely no way to hear the recording during the conversion process, when audacity is converting the cassette. Everything is set up just how it was for the past few years.

    Do you have monitoring turned on?
    Googled- "To hear your music in Audacity while recording, make sure software playthrough is enabled on the Audio I/O tab of Preferences, then click in the right-hand recording VU meter with the microphone symbol, which turns on "monitoring". Click in the meter again if you want to turn monitoring off."

    Been a while since I played with Audacity, but is 'Software Playthrough' ticked off? Also 'Click to Monitor' in the record VU meter may affect playback monitoring.

    Thanks, I will try this. If it still does not work, should I uninstall, and reinstall audacity

    Uninstall and reinstall is easy to try. Can't if all else fails.
