Q: Recording Streaming Audio with Audacity

Hi,
When recording, I am only getting the right track in the stereo setting. I am getting both left and right when listening to the actual stream, but unable to record the left track. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am using Audacity 1.2.6. I have the settings at "stereo mix".

I recently had a friend replace my computer, as it died. On my other computer, I had Audacity to record internet streaming audio, and to record spoken parts for my podcast show. When I had Audacity installed on my old computer, it had 4 options: Line-In, Microphone, Stereo, and Mono. I used the mono and stereo options to record streaming internet audio.
After installing Audacity on this computer, I only have the Line-In, and Microphone options. I have tried downloading other versions of Audacity, but it still only has the Line-In and Mic options no matter what version that I install. (I have version 1.2.6 of Audacity installed presently on my computer) The sound card is a SoundMax AudioESP. My friend says that he installed the lateest drivers for that sound card before he gave it to me. I am at a loss as to how to regain the stereo and mono options on Audacity, so I can record internet audio once again.

Here is some info about my system

A:problems recording streaming audio with Audacity.

It's not Audacity, it's your sound card. It doesn't support the Advanced internal features for recording.
Go to the store and get a splitter. Plug it into your speaker port and run a jumper to your Line In from one of the splitter ports and plug your speakers into the other splitter port.
Configure Audacity to use the Line in as the Source device.

I was actually surprised by that very same thing recently in a live event-- solution was to click on the speaker icon (lower right- near clock) which opens a mixer. Mute the things you do not need for your recording-- that solved it for me.

Hi I'm running windows vista home premium.

my problem is that A.) I seem to get the feeling my computer isn't recognizing my audio card (maybe im paranoid) but when i goto device manager and i goto audio all i see is the sigma tel CODEC. I dont see like a sound card or anything.

. When i try to record with Audacity, i cant because even though i've got something plugged into either the mic, rear mic, or line it, it wont find it. Now, i've looked in my audio settings and when i plug into one of those spots the computer says its working and enabled.
I've also noticed that in my audio settings it doesnt find any sound cards, just the sigma tel codec, is that supposed to happen?
Based on what my Dell packing slip says, I've got Creative Sound Blaster HD Audio, wouldnt that be a sound card, not just a CODEC?

I dont really understand what a CODEC is anyway.

If anyone can help me out here that would be really appreciated.

Hi!

I want to record a radio program that runs for three hours nightly, from midnight to 3:00A.M. on the internet. The program is the classics from the "Golden Age of Radio" that I hope to copy for a senior in the hospital.

The plan is to record it as a low resolution MP3 (32 or 64 bit), burn it to a cd that would be played on a discman.

I know I have to purchase a recording program such as Total Recorder or Super MP3 Recorder.

I have tried the trial version of TR that allows only 40 seconds. It is hard to determine how large the file size of the would be. The instructions seem to be slanted more to song recording length, not three hours.

Before I buy I would like any some advice. Has anyone done this? Are there any recomendations?

Thanks

Hi - I have a RealTek HD sound card in my E-Machines desktop system (new). I'm trying to record streaming audio - basically I want to simply record what I'm hearing through my speakers. But when I try to choose that input, it doesn't seem to be there. My choices are CD Volume, FrontMic, Mic Volume, and Line Volume (see attached pic) - and FYI - I did scroll over to the right - no additional options there.

There is no "wave" or "stereo mix" input choice. Any of the available choices I've tried and they don't record the live audio that's playing on my system. Is there a plug-in or something that will allow me to do this? I just want to record the same stuff that I'm hearing. Help! Thanks -

Greetings all, it has been awhile since I last posted, aside from my computers of which I have 4, I am also a long time audiophile, and have quite the collection of high end vintage stereo equipment. I have a friend who is more hard core about his sounds than I am.
I am fishing for opinions, I have bought a new ASUS lap top that I have a really good sound card and Graphics HDMI card installed. I also am an avid user of ITunes, and have found that their Lossless recordings are better than most of my CDs. I am also rather tired of playing one CD after another, so I recorded all my music, a little over 100gigs on 3 of my computers one being my new lap top. I also use ITunes Icloud service for storing my entire library including all my settings, and have used it to load up my laptop with all their lossless versions of all my music including what I bought from them.
I find the quality to be better than CDs, and better than what I hear on my tube CD player, while playing it from my computer files. My friend says that recorded music on a computer will degrade over time, and that a hard drive will not keep all files in one place, therefore the degrading of the information. He says that the new streaming services along with the new streaming players are far better. Herein lies the information I seek; Which is better, what are the opinions that the rest of you have, is computer recorded music better, or is streaming music on these new (very expensive) players better..., or is ther... Read more

A:Computer Harddrive recording or Streaming lossless audio, which is best?

Which is better depends on the source and the quality settings of the capture. A lossless copy of a CD and the actual CD should sound the SAME. If they do not, you have a player, configuration, or hardware issue. It doesn't matter if you are comparing CD's, ripped files from a CD, or streaming files (assuming all files are from the same source CD version).

Files stored on a computer do not "degrade over time". They will never change unless of course the HDD fails. So you either misunderstood what you friend was telling you, or he doesn't understand computers.

A:Audacity Recording

Mr.PierceOptiplex 380 computer
Hello. You have posted on the Laptop Audio board. There is a Desktop Audio board that might be better suited, as we don't have any experience with those models.
I'll try to give an answer, but not sure I'm following what you are trying to do.
Mr.Piercetrying to record a stereo mix
Are trying to record "a" mix, or are you trying to use the recording source called "stereo mix" in the Windows Sounds dialog? Because there is a big difference.
Mr.Piercethe music waveform i opened to be the JUST the music to listen while recording over it is being recorded with my voice waveform.
While you are in Audacity, you opened (imported) an audio file, then attempted to record over it with a microphone?
In that case, set the mic as the default recording device, not stereo mix.  Have Audacity play the track that you imported, and listen to it through headphones so the mic won't pick it up.
Open a second track in Audacity. Arm it for recording and record the mic on it. After your voice is recorded, you can merge the tracks and export them as a stereo audio file.

I use the program Audacity quite often. I used to be able to choose the device that I record from. The window that allows you to choose the device is now greyed out on my adacity program;therefore, I can no longer make that choice.

If anyone knows how I can resolve this please let me know. I can load an audio file, change it, and download to desktop as MP3 or other format. The program works fine except that I can't record from other devices or websites while playing from them like I used to.

I'm sure there's an Audacity expert out there somewhere.

A:Recording with Audacity

I have Audacity, but don't use it for recording, just for reference (I have a recording studio and use Sonar). If it's greyed out I would suspect that either there is no Recording devices, or default recording device set in the Control Panel/Sound Panel or that there is a problem with the Audacity program and reinstalling may fix it. Also, with Win 7, you should be using the "Beta" version of Audacity.

There is also an Audacity forum, for help with the program problems.

I recently purchased a Dell desktop with 64-bit Vista Premium. Audacity 1.2.6 would not record: I got a message telling me to "check the input device settings and the project sample rate."

I checked in Audacity>Edit>Preferences, & there were no Recording Device options listed at all.

After Googling all possible avenues for advice, I found an extremely simple solution? that actually works!

* Select Personalization from the Control Panel.
* Select Sounds
* Select the Recording tab.
* In my case, there were 3 options shown: Front Mic, Microphone, & Line In, all grayed out & showing as not plugged in.
* Right click on any one of them choose "show disabled devices."
* This brought up the Stereo Mix option.
* Select Stereo Mix, Choose Properties, and click Enable.
* Voila! Now it worked the same way as Wave Out Mix in Windows XP, & I could record streaming audio with no problems!

Hope this helps!

Hello all

This is a rather complicated and annoying problem. Until a few weeks ago I was able to stream music online through Simplecast and record music in Audacity with clarity.

However recently I have had problems where in Audacity only the left channel was recording so that any output came through the left speaker. The audio input level meter showing the mic outputs for both channels has the left channel much higher than the right, and there is no recording of the right channel at all. I can provide JPEGS if needs be. I have a stereo mic lead from my mixer to the audio socket in the laptop, and have set up Audacity to record in Stereo.

In Simplecast when streaming audio the same problem prevails, only the left channel is recording which means that listeners can only hear sound through their left speaker. Again I can provide JPEGS.

It is nothing to do with cables; I have bought new cables and the same problem prevails. There is no problem with the mixer either as it is picking up both left and right channels. The cartridges on the turntables both pick up sound as well. It is just when you record - that is the problem.

I uninstalled the driver, Realtek HD, to see what would happen. The other soundcard on the computer (which is a no frills Microsoft one) has the same problem, but in Audacity the right hand bar is off the scale (JPEG available if needed) and clips when you start recording. In Simplecast the right hand bar is constantly at maximum (JPEG available if neede... Read more

I shut down my comp, got back home and I can't find the file ANYWHERE. It's like it never existed. I'm baffled because I remember saving it and everything, and I honest to goodness cannot find it.

Audacity and SoundTap won't recognise any of my recording devices?


However under Recording Devices, both my microphone drivers are recognised as making sound.

Please help

A:Audacity and SoundTap won't recognise any recording device

I was forced to give up my beloved Audacity which I had used for years, after moving from WFW311-W95-98SE over to Windows 7 [and I never found out why]! Now, there are free and fee alternatives out there, I went with Cyberlink's WaveEditor Express and later with Premium. I'm certainly glad I did! WE definitely does what I need it to do: allow full editing, and, I discovered, one can even "convert" a practice MP3 [which had right-speaker music and left-speaker vocals] into a mono-music only or mono-voice only. I do not know what SoundTap is.

Solved the problem in windows vista x86 home premium, service pack 1 regarding the problems with Audacity and internal recording:

Get a good soundcard with at least 6 channels (lesser might do the trick, but haven't checked this out), get a wire with a 3,5 mm jack in both ends, get a jack splitter and you're ready to go.

Right click on the volume icon and select recording devices. Here right click on the empty white space and enable show hidden and disabled devices. In here there should be something called "stereo mix" enable this.
Now hardwire your line in plug and the plug for your speakers. Remember the jack splitter? Put this in the plug for the speakers so you can have both the wire to your speakers and to the line in plug plugged in at the same time.

In Audacity you now have to select the right device to record with. Open edit, and select preferences. Then under audio I/O select the microsoft sound mapper - output as the output source and select the stereo mix as the input source.

This solved the problem for me. Ergo service pack 1 can STILL be hardwired no matter what others say.

Would be nice if you could detail the problems you were encountering and why this fix works - cause I have no issues with Audacity and my onboard RealTek HD Audio card and recording.

Yeah so I've been able to fix my dual system on both hard drives problem, but seems like my original problem still persists.

Whenever I run fraps, audacity, and warcraft III (warcraft III running by itself doesn't seem to bother anything). I blue screen after 1-2 minutes of recording (sometimes it doesn't, but when it does it does for 3-4 times every time i try).

The error message I get from BSOD is kernel data inpage error, but sometimes the BSOD would just say "a process or thread crucial to the system has unexpectedly exited or been terminated". The error code is always 0x000000004.

Let me know of any pictures you'd like me to upload. Thank you for your time.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to ... Read more

Has anyone found a way to record audio with Audacity while streaming audio from Youtube or other web sources?I know the manufacturers are trying to prevent this.  I was able to do this on an older computer. 8200 elite sffWin-10 64bitDon

Donny, welcome to the forum. I am certain that there may be a way to this, but it is illegal and we can't help on the HP Forums. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Is it possible to record off of a streaming video, ie. Real Player?
 

A:Recording streaming video

HyperCam should be able to record streaming video but i haven't tried it. HyperCam captures the action from your Windows screen and saves it to an .AVI movie file.
