Volume problems with Audacity

Hello kenny,

I downloaded audacity but cant get any volume with the program.

Can u advise as I cant buy any mp3s until I can alter them to my liking…



Hi Jim

Sounds like you haven’t configured Audacity with your PC’s sound card so your sound card isn’t playing the audio that Audacity is sending it.

There are a couple of things you could try:

Solution 1.
Check that you’ve got Audacity looking at the correct audio device by going to “Edit > Preferences > Audio I/O”

Solution 2.
Open up your Windows “Control Panel” in Classic view and click on “Sounds and Audio Devices”.

Select the “Sounds” tab and just check that system sound events will play.

If they do, then click on the “Audio” tab and check what you have selected for “Sound Playback” and “Sound Recording”.

Finally, open up Audacity and go to “Edit > Preferences > Audio I/O” and set the to the same…

Hope this helps…
