Sorry I don't have a specific answer to your question but I'm compelled to at least warn you and others about Audacity. I used to strongly recommend it but I no longer recommend the freeware sound editor called Audacity by SourceForge anymore because the website has shown to be run by scammers and here?s what happened, I had googled Audacity and the first link got hijacked and detoured to a bogus website that resembled Audacity website, however, when I notified Audacity via email plus through their forum about the hijacking situation, I only received typical criminal stupid double-talk nonsense in their routine criminal attempt to twist and change things around to protect whomever?s hijacking the links. Audacity moderators use the exact same criminal tactics SpamCop supervisors, SpamCop forum moderators and at least also including SpamCop?s immediate parent company IronPort does by ganging up and out-numbering any complainant with double-talk nonsense in order to quell all valid criminal complaints by twisting and detouring the subject at all cost to make it seem like the complainant doesn?t know what they?re talking about as well as employing the double-talk nonsense to confuse readers. I?ve cut and pasted here the Audacity's flaky criminal replies posted on their forum website and even though I clearly explained what the problem is with the hijacking you?ll notice the moderators employing typical double-talk nonsense to avoid or detour the real issue at hand. Afterwards I decided to investigate things further only to conclude to my own personal satisfaction that the concept of Audacity sound editor as a freeware was initially invented as bait for the intended purpose of scamming consumers to begin with and therefore I can no longer recommend the audacity sound editor because I?m convinced the people behind it as well as tons of their affiliates are more than likely, as in most likely, crooks who seem to rely mostly on the criminal profits that can be easily gained from today?s vulnerable current Internet situation. Their sound editor was a nice product but innocent folks need to beware of the google links being hijacked by Audacity people themselves who are most likely doing the hijacking or at least protecting the hijackers. What I?ve cut and pasted below is clear cut 100% proof evidence of their criminal psychological profiles or else they wouldn?t have replied with such typical criminal flaky responses. Only criminal mentality tries to detour and change the subject in this fashion whereas any honest professional enterprise would have thanked me for alerting them to a security breach and they would?ve fixed it pronto instead of trying to convince me to pay for some other product or to scan my machine for malware.
Case in Point: Audacity Forum Subject Title: A Google line for Audacity has been hijacked.

Can anyone suggest what extra I need to transfer stereo analogue cassettes and LPs to digital formats?
My Technics SL-23 turntable output goes into a DOSS PA005 pre-amp (a Radio Parts home brand), then into a Behringer UCA-202 that sends a stereo signal to a USB port. The turntable stylus is a Goldring D616E.
For overseas readers, Radio Parts Group has operated in Australia for many decades. This pre-amp was made in China, and no doubt is marketed in many countries with a many different brands.
Alternately, my AKAI GXC-310D tape deck goes straight to the UCA-202.
I have a test LP with very clear stereo effects - soloist in the R channel, a distinct instrument in the L. This stereo effect can be heard in headphones plugged into the UCA's phone output. But once the signal reaches the computer it seems to be mono. The level monitors move exactly in synchronisation, the 2 recorded waves appear identical and I cannot hear any difference between channels in the computer output.
Audacity's settings are:
Recording Device: Microphone (USB Audio CODEC)
Channels 2 (Stereo)
Audacity v1.2.6 is running on Vista Ultimate 32 bit. I have 4GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz CPU (E6550, basically a Dell Optiplex 755).
The soundcard is a SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio, reporting:
Manufacturer: Analog devices
I have also installed a 56K modem to send FAXes, but I assume that has nothing to do with sound recording.
When I plug in the UCA, Vista's Device Manager shows a 3rd sound device
USB Audio CODEC
Manufacturer: (Generic USB Audio)
