Re: Audacity crash nuked entire project

Don't double post. A forum elf has to read a review your post before it becomes visible. it's a SSD, so my understanding is that it's not really required these days. Correct. Not only is it not required, "optimizing" can cause problems. SSDs constantly shuffle work around internally so all the memor...

Re: Clean up muffled voicemail help

Any help? I'm guessing no. That's not a simple voice recording. That's a recording of the system voice processing errors. It sounds like it might be a voice if you only pushed it a little bit. Not that I know of. This happens a lot with people trying to record a podcast over Skype or Zoom. The prod...

Re: White noise between two frequencies

Just that the rules may change a bit at both ends of the spectrum. You can time 2Hz with a stopwatch, pencil, and paper. You can't just swoop in with quick frequency analysis and announce that there's no 2Hz in your work. 2Hz hasn't even gotten out of bed yet and had its coffee. Particularly with "w...

Re: Audacity crash nuked entire project

The "legacy" Audacity version is 2.4.2 and the current "new format" version is 3.0.2. Audacity 3.0.2 doesn't have that _data folder with the thousands of little AU files in it. It carries everything in one vary large .aup3 file. It also has File > Save Project > Save Backup Project which saves a bac...

Re: White noise between two frequencies

What's the application? I get as many frequencies in there as possible instead of only the 10-50 As above, you may need to sample over time to make sure all your frequencies are represented. We need to drag this back to the application. If you need to supply a sound file, there are significant probl...

Re: Audacity on Big Sur - NOOB NEEDS HELP INSTALL ETC

What's the job/task/goal? Sometimes knowing that can give us a good idea of the tools you need. For example, most of the tools needed for successful audiobook and voiceover reading are built into Audacity 3.0.2.

Re: Recording volume decreases after 1 min

Does the newer machine have Skype/Zoom/Meetings? I think you're triggering Automatic Noise Reduction. It hates music. When you use one of those apps, it tries to clean up your voice with Echo Suppression, Noise Reduction, Auto Level Set, and other tools. That's what lets a bunch of people talk to ea...

Re: Background noise :

OK, I'll play bad cop. The telephone qualifies as a second performance and we can't easily split two different performances in a mixed show. Noise Reduction is generally used for constant noises such as lighting whine or computer fan noise. It's not much good for noises that move around. Spectral ed...

Re: Crackling when two separate clips are played

Audacity has tools which can help with this. You don't have to guess at the volume. Yes, if you play multiple tracks at the same time, some of the sounds can add up to more than 100%. That's not serious inside Audacity because of its weird sound format, but the instant you export a sound file like t...

Re: Bit Rate Issue

The bitrate for ACX is not allowed to change. Use Constant 192.
