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 :: 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 / 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 :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

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 :: Audacity Can't Export To Mp3

Sep 24, 2010

Trying to edit some mp3's and join them together using Audacity 1.3.9 but when I try to export I get this "edit metadata" window??? I have all the libraries I believe (Lame, ffmpeg, etc.) with the right versions (I think). Running Ubuntu 9.10.

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 :: 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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Doesn't Work At All?

Mar 9, 2010

It's been almost two months since this problem started. I'm running 9.10, Karmic Koala, with all updates. I was hoping one of the updates would just fix this problem.

The microphone does not appear to work at all. It seems to exist because I have a choice for "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" under "sound preferences," but I don't know how else to check whether this is true. Sound Recorder does not record anything and Skype does not capture any sound from me.

how to run commands in the terminal and I consider myself an intermediate user, I just don't know anything about sound.

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.
