TROUBLESHOOTING (AUDACITY)
If you are having trouble while recording to Audacity, please look through the list below and
see if you can solve the problem by yourself before calling your dealer.
NO SOUND:




If you are not getting any sound into the software application, go back to the
preferences as shown above and make sure you have selected the USB input as
the recording device.
Do a power cycle: Close Audacity, turn off the turntable, unplug the USB Cable.
Then plug in the USB Cable, turn on the turntable, and reopen Audacity.
If you are not able to hear any audio while you play music on the turntable unit,
please click on the microphone drop-down arrow and select Monitor Input. This will
enable you to hear the audio from the turntable unit even if you have not started the
recording process.
Check the microphone slider to make sure that it is at full volume, all the way to the
right as shown below. If the microphone slider toolbar is missing from the Audacity
window, go to Edit>Preferences, click on the Interface tab and make sure that the
Enable Mixer Toolbar and Enable Meter Toolbar options are checked. If they are
not, please check them and then press OK.
UNSATISFACTORY SOUND QUALITY:



Check your tone arm stylus connection to make sure it is secured to the tone arm in
the correct position. The stylus must be connected to the tone arm whenever the
turntable is used to play a vinyl record.
Make sure that your RCA plugs are plugged into a source or not touching bare
metal. If you are experiencing noise through the USB cable, the RCA plugs may be
causing interference. Ensure that the USB cable is not touching or near any other
cables.
If you experience any odd sounds coming from the recording, try closing all
applications and restarting them.
NO SOUND WHEN THE UNIT IS CONNECTED TO A WINDOWS PC:
1. When the turntable is connected, you might not be able to hear any sound output if you
need to listen to video or music. This may be because the default playback device has been
changed to USB Audio CODEC while the turntable is connected to the PC.
Solution 1: Remove the USB cable from the PC.
Solution 2:
Vista and Windows 7:
Click "Start" and go to the Control Panel. Find and click the "Sound" icon. In the "Playback"
tab, change the playback device to your speakers, and click "OK".
287
Vista and Windows 7
Other versions
Other versions (e.g.: Windows XP): Click "Start", then find and access the Control Panel. Select “Sound and audio devices” and
choose the "Audio" tab. In Sound playback, change the default device using the drop-down
menu. Select your desired playback device (e.g. speakers) and click "OK". The sound
should now be output correctly.
 NOTE: If you select solution 2, you will need to change the setting manually every time
you connect the unit to the PC.
2. If you want to listen to music while recording to the computer, click Edit in the Audacity
window and select “Preferences”. Adjust your settings in the !/O tab to match the figure
below. Deselect the check box if you wish to disable the function.
