UMC22 with Audacity

by ploggy


I've just bought a UMC22 and tried to use it with Audacity. I plug my guitar directly into channel 2 with the Direct Monitor button deployed. I can hear the guitar perfectly until I hit the red Record button then I hear a strong echo sound behind my guitar. As far as I know I haven't set any effects in Audacity. In fact I only hear this sound during record mode; when I play it back there is no echo - the sound is fine. I have the same situation with Bandlab and Amplitube. I also have an iRig HD2 but that doesn't have this problem. I'm using a Dell Inspiron running W10.Any thoughts please? Many thanks. Chris
