I’m using Audacity 2.1.1 on my Macbook, which uses Yosemite OS X 10.10.5
I’ve been recording scores of old audio cassettes using the Ion Tape Express player, plugged into a USB port. After almost 200 recordings, I was suddenly getting 30 minutes of recorded data for every 45 minute tape side. Playing back the recording, I was noticing innumerable skips.
I followed all the troubleshooting advice listed here: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_recording_troubleshooting.html (updated everything, turned off internet while recording, turned off audio monitoring, etc). It seemed to work, no more skips.
But after another 10 tapes, I’m back to the same problem. 30 minutes of data for 45 minutes of tape.
I really can’t imagine why this happened suddenly, stopped and is happening again, but I’m all out of ideas.
Can someone help?
