ive had this problem for a while
ill set a click track on audacity whilst i am recording a song.
i know for a fact that i am playing in time with the metronome however when i playback what i have recorded.
its always in time for the first 10 seconds and then itll drift out of time gradually for the rest of the recording.
any ideas what the problem may be?
im using a usb mic by the way.
the only idea i have is lag?


(does anyone have any alternative to audacity which is free also and better?)
yeah, i've come across the same thing.
i think it is a lag problem, where the computer or audacity can't keep up.
it happened to me on a crappy computer, so maybe try a faster computer.
or use something other than Audacity.
