I was recording some tracks for a song earlier. I have a mic plugged into the mic input of my comp,straight into audacity. All my drums,bass ect turned out fine,but when I tried recording my Guitar,even at low volumes,It gives me this weird phase and volume swell up and down. I tried changing the volume,turning down the distortion,Moving the mic,but nothing seemed to work. They are just muted fast chugs. They sound great coming out of the amp,but recorded they are muddy phase ick. Any Advice would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't tried recording my guitar directly to Audacity before... but I have tried recording vocals to the app... nothing satisfied me until I invested in a USB interface. Success with the interface has allowed me to try all kinds of setups... including mic'ed guitar amps. If I were to try recording a guitar directly to Audacity, I would first try recording as clean a sound as possible (you can always add the effects later).

That sounds like the phaser effect on audacity. It may be possible that you accidently set it up to record and automatically add the phaser effect. But I don't know. I know audacity pretty well and I've never had audacity automatically make that noise after recording unless I chose to put that effect on.

Thats the weird thing. I recorded every other track,and there was no phase. Now when I try distorted guitar,both in E and drop C It still Phased. Im at a loss. Im going to try and Get a direct in mic.
