Re: "Effects failed to initialize" error.

Audacity 3.0.3 is available as either a 32-bit app, or a 64-bit app. If you wish to use the 64-bit version of Audacity, you will need to update your plug-ins to 64-bit versions. If you wish to use 32-bit plug-ins, you will need to use the 32-bit version of Audacity. Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versio...

Re: Audacity refuses to record

Do you use Zoom or Skype or similar?

Re: Audacity refuses to record

I suspect that the problem is that some other app has grabbed control of the audio system and is effectively locking Audacity out from using it.
(Apps like Skype / Zoom and similar are known offenders in this respect.)

Re: Recovery: aup3unsaved file missing

When a project is saved with Audacity 3.x, it creates an "AUP3" project file. While Audacity is open and the project has not been saved, there will be two files in: /var/tmp/audacity-<username>/ (Where <username> is your user name.) The files will have names like: New Project 2021-08-03 15...

Re: Nothing will get Audacity to work on my Macbook Pro

This is the EXACT set up my son used when he was here using his Lenovo laptop with Linux and it worked perfectly. Unfortunately, not all audio input sockets are the same on laptop computers. The splitter illustrated on Amazon has "tip, two rings, and a sleeve" connections. There's no guar...

Re: Recovery: aup3unsaved file missing

I later found out I misinterpreted the df output and it was actually 18M of 825G. Ouch. That may have been fatal for the project. There's a few folders like "project1313829843", one of which contains all 36GB of AU files (almost 35,000 of them), and three separate files: They are most lik...

Re: M4A file unsupported despite newest Audacity and FFmpeg versions

@AudiOw
It appears that FFmpeg has not loaded.

Do this so that we can see what's occurring:
  1. Quit Audacity
  2. Launch Audacity
  3. "Help menu > Diagnostics > Show Log"
  4. Save the log somewhere convenient, then upload it with your reply.

Re: Lagging/Program not responding

Try copying the AUP3 file to your "Documents" folder (I'm assuming that's on your internal C: drive), and see if you can open it there. If it opens correctly, use the "Reverse" effect to reverse all tracks, and then again to reverse them back again (effectively doing nothing, but...

Re: Shortcuts

I would not have thought to look for the keyword keyboard. A couple of useful tips for finding things in the manual: 1. The first page of the manual (https://manual.audacityteam.org/) has a big picture of Audacity. You can jump to the relevant section of the manual for any part of the GUI shown in ...

I have an audio cable attached to the mic jack on the Sony player
A "mic jack" is for getting sound into cassette player (from a microphone). No sound comes out of a mic jack.
