I am assuming you either have a computer with an in-built microphone or an
external microphone is connected. Let me know if I am barking up the wrong
After launching Audacity:
1. Press control-shift-f6
2. Press shift-tab until you reach Recording Device. It will probably
be on something like Stereo Mix or What you Hear according to my guesswork.
3. Arrow up/down until you find Microphone.
4. Press control-f6 to get back to your tracks area and try recording.
5. Let us know how you did.

Greetings to all,
Although I have had Audacity for quite some time and love it, some basics I
haven't delved into.
I use Audacity to record from software or internet, but how do I change it
so I can record from my PC's voice recorder? I made this change a long time
ago so I could record the other way, but don't remember how I did it.
Thanks for the refresher.
I particularly love that you can change pitch of music. A lot of second and
third generation recordings raise the music pitch, and I like my original
recordings in their original key,so this has been great to apply to my music
collection from the 50s and 60s.
Thanks. Very much.
