I am not privy to all the details (and even then I may not know the answer) but this sounds like some AGC is enabled that we need to turn off.
Hello all! I have been trying to convert my cassette tapes to digital by connecting my tape deck to the sound card on my computer. I use Audacity to capture the recordings and everything works fine except for one thing: I get periods of very disrubing static during the playback of the cassette tape. The problem is not with the tape itself, nor with the tape deck. I only get the intermitant static when the deck is connected to my computer.
Does anyone have any idea about what could be wrong and how I can correct it? I would be very grateful!
