Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audacity / Record In Audacity In 8.10 64 Bit On A Dell Studio 1535?

May 10, 2010

I am trying to record in Audacity in Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop.The problem is not that its not recording, per se.Rather, the problem is its not recording the way that I want it to.

Its recording from the built-in mic, and I want to use the mic jack instead as a line in from a guitar (well, technically, an acoustic-electric resonator, but its close enough to a guitar to call it a guitar).

I have tried using various devices for recording, and changing settings in both the Volume Control and Sound Preferences, but no matter what I do, Audacity still records from my built-in microphones, instead of from the line-in.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Mic Jack To Work On Dell Studio 1535?

Jun 8, 2010

I have a Dell Studio 1535 and can't seem to get recording from the mic jack to work. I was wondering if anyone has got it to work or not on Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. I fiddled with the settings in System->Preferences->Sound and in Volume Control: HDA Intel (Alsa mixer), as well as the settings in the semi-CLI program alsamixer, but it doesn't matter what I do. I have failed to get it to record from the mic jack. It will only record from my internal mics, and I don't want that at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Audacity To Record From Line-in?

Mar 5, 2011

I am trying to get Audacity to record from a line in. Seems like it should be a fairly easy setup. I discovered that Audacity needs PulseAudio. So I installed that, and don't know how to configure it. I set the sound preferences >> Input to line in. I am using a desktop that has a line-in on the front and back, so I'm not sure which it will pick up, so I have been testing both.

Software :: Audacity Play Selection - Ubuntu Studio?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu Studio 9.10 64-bit, and have a problem with Audacity version 1.3.9. My sound card is a Sound Blaster Live Value.

Whenever I highlight a region of an audio file and select Play, the playback skips through the first few of seconds of the selection, (mostly) replacing them with a burst of staticky noise. I can hear very brief snippets of the correct audo underneath the static. It skips through this section far faster than real-time - i.e., it skips to say, the 10-second mark after only 2 or 3 seconds of noise. If I play the selected area in a loop, the noise and skipping only happen the first time through. The second and subsequent passes are fine.

Needless to say, this makes precise audio editing much more difficult. I've tried Googling it, and haven't seen any reports of similar problems from anyone else.

Fedora :: How To Enable Bluetooth On Dell Studio 1535

Jul 30, 2009

how to enable bluetooth on Dell Studio 1535.

From the Fedora 10 to the beginning of the Fedora 11, I was successfully enabling bluetooth device on my Dell laptop by putting hid2hci command as a system startup module:

# echo "/usr/sbin/hid2hci" > /etc/sysconfig/modules/bluetooth.modules
But the latest hid2hci command in bluez package now displays help information instead of turning on the (default?) bluetooth device:


Now your bluetooth device should be enabled during startup. Only one problem still exists, the state of the bluetooth device will be reset if you will turn it off using the hardware turnoff button. If you will turn it on again, you will be required to enter hid2hci command manually.

Debian :: Audacity Record Sound System?

Jan 4, 2011

I've found somewhere on the forum I need to check whether "wave" in alsamixer is not muted. There is another posibility: change source in audacity to "wave". There is no option like this in my program and I don't know where can I find that "wave" in alsamixer. I don't use any like artsd, jack... Just alsa + fluxbox + audacity.

General :: Audio - Can't Hear It But Audacity Can Record It

Jul 13, 2010

I've installed a tv card but I can't hear the sound through my built-in CMedia soundcard when I watch tv with TVTime. The tv card's audio output is externally connected to my soundcard's line in input. In the 'Input' tab of the 'Sound Preferences' dialog, I can see the input level meter moving.

Audacity can record the tv sound, and I can hear it when I have the 'pass-through' option enabled, or when I play the recording.

I can play media files without a problem, and I can hear the system sounds.

But for some reason I can't get the tv sound to go through to the soundcard's output.

Obviously I've got the audio configured wrong, but I don't know what to do to fix it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Wireless Internet To Work On A Dell Studio 1535

Feb 5, 2011

I am having trouble getting my wireless internet working on Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. My wireless card works just fine in an earlier version (8.10) of Ubuntu. In fact, it worked right out of the box on Intrepid. However, in 9.10, I can not get it to work. I have installed Wicd Network Manager in it, and it shows no networks visible, even though if I reboot and go into my 8.10 version (I have a multiboot), opening Wicd will immediately show several wireless networks within range. So I'm thinking that the 9.10 version is missing a driver for my wireless card, which 8.10 has.

Fedora :: Audacity Unable To Record Sound From Soundcard

Jul 6, 2011

I'm running Fedora 15 XFCE spin, Audacity 1.3.13-beta and my sound is ALSA/Pulseaudio (I'm not totally sure what these are anyway, are they drivers?) Anyway, when I'm in Audacity and I go to the record options I can choose from default, pulse, and HDA ATI SB:ALC268 Analog (hw:0,0). If I try any of these three options and press record I get static. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like to press record for each of the three options in order.


The last option won't even record nothing, it just doesn't work. Also, if you look where the little picture of the microphone is, the option to drag the input volume is greyed out.

General :: Dell Studio 1535 Screen Resolution - System Won't Get Past The Loading Screen Anymore

Aug 4, 2010

Unfortunately my experience in the Unix* based world up to this point has only been using web servers and administrating them, no GUI experience of any kind so I am completely unfamiliar with the setup and entire usage of Xorg or any other Window manager at this point. The issue I am having is with the screen resolutions I am being allowed to chose for my Dell Studio 1535 running Fedora Core 13 and the KDE 4 desktop GUI, thus my issue since I am not really familiar with how to run a Unix* based GUI in the first place.

The basic information, if there is more needed just advise what and what command gathers that info (or what conf/log I should look into in order to find it). Laptop is a Dell Studio 1535 Video is the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. LCD interface is the LVDS.

So far it seems to give me modes for 1024x768 and on down, nothing above this. I believe I am supposed to use the radeon driver being that is the type of card it is but every time I change the xorg.conf file to use this instead of vesa the system wont get past the loading screen anymore upon reboot and nor can I seem to find a way to bring up a command line so I can hit up the Xorg.0.log to see what is wrong or change the xorg.conf file back to the original driver it had listed.

I am going to assume this is a missing driver or something else it hangs on but without being able to get access back to the system and having to rebuild it again (re-install via live CD) I am basically out of luck at this time. Sorry for the rather poor post but I do hope to receive some basic directions on where to go from here with this issue

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Recording With A Mic And Audacity?

Feb 26, 2010

i can't record with my mic anymore. I went to do so in audacity and i only get the noise it hears through the headphones. I am recording a second vocal track. The first track is the music. I looked at the alsamixer and the mic was originally muted and i unmuted. Should line be muted when i am using the mic? I also tried to record with the mic in sound recorder but got nothing there either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get Audacity To Work With Pod

Aug 10, 2010

I've been trying to learn how to record my guitar parts onto Audacity using my Pod XT.I've always used Audacity to do my audio recordings since its much more user friendly than Ardour and just as capable IMO.However, I cannot get Audacity to work with the Pod.I downloaded the "line6-usb-source" using apt-get.Ubuntu seems to recognize the Pod and get a signal just fine (when I go to "Sound Preferences" it allows me to select the Pod XT as input hardware and even shows an incoming signal).When I go to Audacity's preferences,it allows me to select the Pod as the "Recording Device", however when I go to record it gives me an error saying to check the Project Sample Rate.

Does the Pod not output at 44100 Hz?Is there a way to change the sample rate the Pod puts out?Is there another setting in Audacity I need to adjust?I do not want to wine or emulate anything.I feel I shouldn't have to use a specific audio recording software to use a piece of a hardware I paid good money for.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audacity Not Recognizing FFmpeg?

Jan 17, 2010

I installed Audacity to convert an mp4 to an mp3. Now, I don't necessarily need Audacity to do this, but for the time being I'm more concerned with getting Audacity to work properly as opposed to getting an mp3 onto my iPod.

In Audacity, I went to Edit>Preferences>Libraries. For the MP3 Export Library, Audacity recognizes LAME, but under the FFmpeg Import/Export Library it says "FFmpeg library not found." I hit the Download button and read this page on how to install FFmpeg, noticing the warning about needing FFmpeg 0.5 or later on Linux.

I fired up Synaptic and searched for "ffmpeg," chose the vanilla version and installed it along with two dependencies which I don't exactly remember but I bet they were libavformat52 and libavdevice52.

Back in the Audacity Preferences window I chose the "Locate..." button to point to the newly installed libraries, but Audacity is not recognizing/installing them successfully. I've tried pointing to the following files:



Did I install the wrong version of FFmpeg or libavformat? Any pointers?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audacity And Combining MP3 Files?

Mar 1, 2010

So I asked around and to combine audio files apparently I want to use Audacity.

It seems easy enough to LAYER audio files, but how do you string them together in sequence? I have an audiobook divided into 5 minute chapters and I want to combine them into longer chapters....my MP3 player likes to play them out of order which makes them difficult to listen to. I want to make it 1 long tract, or maybe 6 medium length tracks.

How do I combine tracks with Audacity...Not layering them but putting them in order into 1 long track?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Mic Doesn't Work Audacity - 10.04

Jul 10, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, using Audacity 1.3.12 beta... and trying to get it to work with a USB Mic.

In Audacity ALSA I/O preferences, I can select the USB mic. But when I record, the input meter stays at about half-way and does not fluctuate when I speak into the microphone... I can hear myself very faintly on the playback... but it is very quiet and there is a loud buzzing. There are no mechanical reasons for this buzzing, such as computer fan, etc...

Also, I cannot find the USB mic in Ubuntu Sound Prefereces...

This is from "Device Info" in audacity:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audacity Pre-echo Removal?

May 15, 2011

I was using a line device to record compact cassettes to digital (Linear PCM) then I transferred these files to the computer.Due to cassette print-through, there is audible, albeit weak, pre-echo. This is not caused by the recorder since I can hear them playing the cassettes on a deck.So. Does Audacity have a pre-echo removal function, or can a similar result be obtained by applying different effects? Or any 3rd-party plug-ins?
