| As you can see no peaks are higher than 0,5 and that's for the whole
| tape. The meter for the input are as you wrote almost reahing the far
| right end. What can causing this problem? [WinXP]
The top of the waveform looks a little odd, flat topped as if it had gone
outside the volume envelope but it can't have done. Do you mean the
recording level meters are nearly reaching the far right hand edge of
the scale, or the input level slider on the Mixer Toolbar is nearly fully
over to right?
The level meter goes almost to the red area. It is neccessary to put
the level slider almost to the max to get enough input.<br>
If you cannot get a level of more than +- 0.5 on the waveform with the
input slider full up, can you turn up the output level of the tape recorder
e.g. by cabling from its headphones or speaker output, so that the
recorder's volume control will affect the signal sent to the input?
That's what I have done<br>
If peak recording level on the red recording meters won't give you more
than +- 0.5 on the waveform then I am wondering if there is a problem
with your soundcard? And what version of Audacity are you using (see Help >
About in the program)?
I use 1.2.5. I hope it is not the soundcard, but I am afraid it is.
I'll go over and check it next week. At the moment I am over my head
with other tasks.<br>
So check your sound device drivers are up to date with the latest ones for
your computer model from the manufacturer of the sound device or
motherboard. Do not use Microsoft drivers as they are only low quality
generic drivers. To update your sound device drivers: Start > (Settings) >
Control Panel > System , click on the Hardware tab, then on the "Device
Manager" button on the Device Manager panel. Expand "Sound, Video
and Game Controllers" by clicking on the + sign, right-click on the sound
device and click "update driver". If you cannot get an appropriate
non-Microsoft driver, seek a driver from the manufacturer's website.
Thanks for your advise!!!<br>
