====Recording with Audacity====
~Some things to consider when recording with Audacity-

~~Set the correct input device, see A 'select input device' (if your using JACK switch it ALSA to select device, then back to JACK)

~~Turn the capture level up, see D 'capture level up'. Don't confuse Capture with Mic. Mic sets the volume of Mic 'thru' but not the record level.

~~If frugally installed set temporary directory outside of SaveFile . Go to // edit > preferences > directories// set to something like /mnt/home/audacity-temp

~~Select //view > 'show clipping'// highlight any part of the recording that has distorted due to input being too high.

~~If recording multiple tracks you may need to lower latency - otherwise new track may come in too soon.

~~Use [[Jack]] to monitor if your system is recording continuously without gaps (due to not enough processor time allocated, or not fast enough processor).
