Subject: RE: Tech: Audacity: Very easy recording!
for any serious audio/video recording & editing, you do need a bit of free space to manipulate things. With fairly new computers, this isn't 'usually' a problem, as spacious HDs are the norm. (I have 160 GIGS, and that is not huge)..You really should be offline also, and close all unnecessary programs so as to give your editing processes priority.

There are various things that might keep you from hearing sound...(that is, volume controls can be turned off in several places....check all menus and controls). Making sure Audacity is set right: just open Project: import audio, and load some file you know works, and play a bit..if you get sound, you go on to your project.
