[2.0.0] Load time; stop at configured time?


I’m using 2.0.0 on XPSP3 and have a couple of questions:

  1. It takes about 30s to load Audacity because of all the DLL’s in plug-ins: If removing DLLs is the solution so Audacity loads faster, which DLLs can I safely remove?
  2. Last night, I left Audacity running so it could record a 45mn radio show off the sound-card since it would just stop recording once it no longer had any disk space. It did work, but I was wondering if there were a less medieval way to have Audacity stop recording after X minutes?

Thank you.

see the bottom of this page in the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/Playing_and_Recording

or this FAQ: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/FAQ:Recording#Can_I_set_Audacity_to_record_at_a_certain_time.3F

BTW if you’re running out of disk space as soon as that then you’re seriously out of room. You need to offline or delete some files and then defrag the disk.


Thanks for the tip.

I had enough disk space. I simply went to bed leaving Audacity running because I didn’t know it could be configured to stop recording after a certain amount of time. Poor man’s timer :slight_smile:
