Re: New installation cannot access a non-existent file

I thought I'd be clever and bring the files accross from the old location to the new. Personally I wouldn't even attempt to "fix" this. I would undo all of the changes, delete all of the files and folders that have been changed, and start again the "proper" way: Log in as the user, then run the Aud...

Re: Windows folder view on saving/export/import

As I work in a lot of different folders, I love to just copy and paste the folder path into the software, where I need to save/export/import something. In Audacity this has never been possible and instead I need to click through the folder structures every time. Costing me 10-15 seconds. While copy...

Re: Machine noises.

Audacity's Noise Reduction effect can be very effective for reducing constant low level hiss from the recording. See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/noise_reduction.html Intermittent noises and high level noises are much more difficult to deal with. The best approach is to avoid getting other n...

Re: Record button creates new mono track when already in new stereo track?

Set the required number of recording channels in the Device Toolbar . Audacity has two ways of recording: 1. "Append record" (default) - record to the end of the current track if possible. 2. "Record to new track" - creates a new track and records into it. By default, clicking the Record button (or ...

I do have a short audio file
If the file is no more that about 10 seconds long, you can attach it to your reply so that we can evaluate the issue.

Re: Machine noises.

What are you recording?
For example: "I am recording an audio book. which I am narrating myself, using an AT2020 USB microphone".

This is a work device I don't have administrator access to, so it's quite likely it's a security settings issue.
Are you able to test with Audacity on that USB drive on your own PC?
If it works on your own PC and not the work PC, then yes it could be a security setting issue.

Re: Unable to open AUP File Between PCs

Yes, the files were downloaded and relocated to the Audacity subfolder in the Documents folder. A very unlikely possibility: Is the hdd in that machine formatted as FAT-32? Windows uses NTFS by default, though there is an unlikely possibility that it could be formatted as FAT32 (more likely if it i...

Re: Unable to open AUP File Between PCs

Not sure why my aup3 files won't open. When you are able to, find the "checksum" of the file that won't open and compare it to the checksum of the file that does open. A "checksum" allows you to see if a copy of a file is exactly the same as the original. (See: https://www.audacityteam.org/download...
