Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

It's been awhile, but I wanted to let everyone who replied to my question that the issue has been resolved. Or it resolved itself. Or something. The only thing that changed, as far as I know, is that I updated some Dell drivers. The issue went away after that, and has stayed away. I have no idea wha...

Save As Won't Work

I am using Audacity 3.0.0 in Windows 10. I tried to do a “Save As” of an Audacity file today and got this error message: Error Saving Project Audacity failed to write to a file. Perhaps C: is not writable or the disk is full. For tips on freeing up space, click the help button. I checked and there i...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

I'll try it on my laptop tomorrow and see what happens. I don't know why my wave forms are altered significantly. I would be happy to move the various stages of production that you mention to Dropbox or OneDrive. I could do it Monday when I record my next podcast, or I think I saved a version of a p...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

Thank you. Heres another clue. Yesterday, when I had completed all the segment of my vocal track, I seperated the segments before I highlighted the track and started doing the effects. When I added Compressor, the beginning of each track shifted about 5 seconds to the left, but that part of the 5 se...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

Where would you say we are with this? Would we say this is a conundrum and that someday I might hopefully stumble upon an explanation and a solution for my Compressor-removing-the-first-five-seconds-of-each-segment-in-my-number-1-vocal-track issue? Meantime, would I not use Compressor as everything ...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

I checked again and it's more like a 5 second shift, which would be hard to detect when comparing the tracks, though I agree they look the same. I also noticed today that I lose the first few seconds of the first segment on the first track also, so it's not just the borders between the tracks. I als...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

Here's a snipping tool screen shot with the initial recording and a snipping tool screen shot after the Compressor was added. The monitor I'm using is turned sideways. The first track contains the segments of me speaking. I use the Time Shift Tool to seperate them and position the stingers in betwee...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

I noticed this after using the Compressor effect, both when I used Compressor alone and when I used it as I normally do, after the Normalize effect.

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

OK, this is weird. I took some screenshots and then, when checking the segments, I noticed that I wasn't exactly missing the first 10 second or so of ever segment. The boundries between all of the segments shifted forward, so that each segment ended with what was supposed to be the first few seconds...

Re: Missing Seconds at the Beginning of Each Vocal Segment in a Track

Compressor does not leave a horizontal line between tracks, though.
