I’ve been using Audacity for some simple editing. Trimming, normalising, EQ, exporting to MP3 and WAV. Input is 48 kHz, 24 bit. Audacity 2.3.1 on Macos 10.11.6.
As long as I work with one project file, everything is hunky dory.
However, I have four backup channels I need for a couple of tracks. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a note of which track is what and these come from a Soundfield mic. While trying to figure out what the channel order was, I created about eight project files with different channel orders, 4 channels each. I saved and exported two of them without any issues.
Stopped for lunch. Decided to close the projects I didn’t need. The first one closed without error. When saving the second one, the following error came up:
“atos needs to take control of another process for debugging to continue.”
The dialog needed my admin pw to continue, which I provided. It started generating an error report or something. Audacity froze. Couldn’t kill it from Activity monitor. Did a restart.
After the restart, upon opzning Audacity again, there weer four projects listed for repair. When trying to repair, the same error appeared. This time, I cancelled, to be greeted with another error:
“Developer Tools Access needs to take control of another process for debugging to continue. Type your password to allow this.”
A short search revealed nothing in connection with Audacity, or El Capitan. I have Xcode installed and command-line tools enabled, which also appeared in the search.
Any ideas? Or do I still need to take Audacity as a one-project-at-a-time tool?
Crash report from the second session in attachment.
