Re: Multi-Tool Only Zooms Out Regardless

I just noticed that, with the Multi-tool activated, the Zoom function (pressing option key when Multi-Tool is on) only zooms out, even though the cursor shows a + (plus) symbol. Yes, this is a graphic oddity - you are making a Zoom out by a factor of 2 - BUT the magnifying glass cursor has a "+" si...

Re: LAME question

You don't need to roll back, you can use the latest version of Audacity.

All you need to do is go to Tracks Behaviors preference and check "on" the top item "Select all audio, if selection required".

Personally I think it would be MUCH better for tracks to always be 32-bit float format unless explicitly changed by the user. We could then safely hide the sample format by default, and only show it if the user has overridden the safe default.
Big +1 for that idea,

Peter.

Re: Procedural editing and other feedback

I've never really used the per-track audio volume and panning. Maybe these could be moved to being a real-time effect as part of the above? I've never really needed the description of "stereo, 44100Hzm 32-bit float", I think that can be put in an info dialog. I would support this. It's far too easy...

Re: MacOS Big Sur, Retina, early 2016

The UCA-202 would take its input through RCA sockets and output to you computer via USB.

Just be aware that the UCA-202 has bo gain control - so you may need control of the signal level prior to it reaching the UCA-202

... But "Label Sound" is greyed out under "Analyze". What do I need to do to "un-grey" it?
You just need to select some audio for it to work on.

Re: Playback Area Limited?!? What Is This???

You have made a selection in the Timeline - and that sets the range for QuickPlay:

See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/timeline.html#tqp

Just click in the waveform instead
