Every thing is good to go until i record. It functions for a time then stops and will pick back up 10 -15 sec later. The result is skipped record. Anyone please advise. Thank You.

You're transferring vinyl records? How? How are you playing the records?

I'm not sure what is being requested here but, yes, i am transferring records. I cue my record > set pause and record with audacity > start record.On side change I pause on record> cue next side and continue and so on..... I'm sure this is permissible. If not, please advise me what other procedure is better.
Thanks

Sound activation is not engaged.

The overdub is checked on, the software playthrough is checked on.

I'm adding to this post again because the intermittent episode just occurred again. This really needs to be more reliable. Transferring records is tedious enough. If the problem was predictable it could be fixed. Imagine, transferring records for 8hrs and find that there are 5 sec drops here and there throughout the 8 hours. It becomes lost time. If Audacity 2.2.0 would just stay stopped, then I could simply re cue. When monitoring the recording I hear only the record album. I think the actual transfer is only audible with finished recording. I can conclude by stating my anxiety level is peaked with this. I have no idea that of the 700+ albums transferred with the help of Audacity, that there might be 5000 5 second gaps throughout. The saving grace is I do check the transfers, but not real time. If anyone has any ideas regarding this please let me know. Thanks

We should have asked earlier: What version of Audacity are you running?
Also: How are you connecting your turntable to the Mac Pro? Line In? USB?
For the moment it appears all the elves are stumped.

Hey,

I'm also having the same problem, but I'm recording old radio plays from cassette tapes. I've attached a screen shot showing the discrepancy between the track time and the audio position. Any suggestions gratefully received!
