K, so I just downloaded audacity on my laptop. When I record my acoustic guitar through my internal mic, the first few seconds sound ok, and then everything becomes quieter, compressed, and wah sounding. Can anyone help me here?
turn off the noise reduction on your soundcard.
How do I do that?
depends on your soundcard/MOBO (if you are using the MOBOs integrated sound. there should be a program on your computer that controls your soundcard/Mobo sound drivers.
It's sigmatel. My laptop's a dell d530, by the way. do you know where i may find said program?
no idea, look up what it's called on the products support page and search for it.
You need to catch it with a pokeball.
