Hi!A technician at Sweetwater Sound was helping me, via remote computer to computer servicing, with my new ZED mixing board's sound card update and settings. In the process he somehow changed the recording volume in Audacity. I have been unable to get back in touch with that spacific tech at Sweetwater since then. My problem is that as I am recording in Audacity on a mic, I need to really boost my headphone volume onthe mixing board to be able to clearly hear what is going on. Then when I hit playback, the playback volume from Audacity is too loud and is sometime distorting. My question is: Is there a way for a blind user to put recording levels back to factory settings?

You can set your recording levels in your control panel then use gain after you record. I prefer this method over using amplification as I have more control over it and can make small changes as I need to make them without the possibility of effecting my recording. I set my mic levels lower than probably most folks do so that I can increase them through gain. This helps me aleviate the background noise which is produced by the room that I record in. Even though I do use & recommend a dynamic mic, you're still going to get some background noise especially if you've your mic settings cranked up. ----- Original Message ----- From: Ron To: audacity4blind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, September 19, 2013 09:56 Subject: [audacity4blind] Amplification Hi all. Some tape recorders had a visible thing that went in to the red when your recording level was too loud and it would create distortion. I understand that Audacity has the same, though this is unusable for people with screen readers. Is there any way we can get round this? Can you set Audacity to always record consistently regarding the sound and noise level? We can hear the difference base, treble, pitch, speed etc. makes to a recording However we can't hear what Normalise or leveler might do. It seems these are more visual things for some kind of effect? I appreciate there is more to it, but could anyone please simplify? I just want to make recordings that have a set standard sound quality and the same level of volume. Using Windows xp with Jaws 13. Interested to hear what you think. Ron
