My recorded audio isn't showing a waveform unless zoomed in.

So, I’m trying to record guitar tracks, and it’s definitely not being recorded quietly. The only thing that shows is some perforated vertical lines where the “hits” start. Then if I zoom in a bit, the waveform suddenly appears properly and at the same size as others around it. Anyone know what’s going on?

Hi and welcome,

Is the waveform visible even once you Zoom Out the waveform after? Do you Zoom In the waveform or the project?
