Audacity Audio Recording

Postby mtelesha » Sun Nov 23, 2008 1:59 pm

I have converted our churches old Dell to a audio recorder with Linux Mint. It has worked ok but I have issues with the audio level being about 20 dB to low. I opened up the volume mixer and the second I adjusted a slider I lost all input audio. Though I can hear the audio on a headphone but I can not get anything to record. I have changed the preferences of Audacity and I have looked for Jackd and Pulse as they are incompatible with Audacity and they are not running on this system. That is the whole reason I went with Xfce.

What am I missing in audio with Xfce? OSS and ALSA are not working now with Audacity and it was working with ALSA Default until I touched the mixer.

Have you checked the switches in the volume control?
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Yes all the switches are fine. Everything is fine except the recording in Audacity. I can hear the audio through my headphones but can not get Audacity to record like it did before I just touched a volume control.
