The first two, shift-H and shift-I were where they are supposed to be. The
tracks recording with shift-N wereon 2 so I changed to 1. I tried a test
message, but when going back to listen, got a message about latency and having
to drag the track?
I should have copied that message then and there, but did not, and can't
duplicate it to show you the message I got.

There are essentially three things that must be checked, I'll give you
the direct shortcuts but you could reach them also by the manner
described by Andrew:
- Shift+H: host. Can probably stay as it is. Wasapi has the shortest
latency and greatest bit depth but direct sound and MME would serve
- Shift+I, the input device, should be either mic or line or
something, in any case not loopback or SPDIF.
- Shift+N, the number of channels, for computer sounds, it should be
too, for a normal mic just one.

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
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
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
collection from the 50s and 60s.
Thanks. Very much.
