Hi, i wasnt sure what to search for so sorry if this has been solved. I have a slight issue with exporting. It is merely an inconvenience in truth but it’s quite annoying. When I export any audio (in .wav format) I seem to get a glitch part way through the audio. Today for example I had 2h35m of audio recorded, and when I exported it worked for around 5 minutes and produced a file of an appropriate size for that length, but when you listen to it it only is 11minutes 15 secs long. As far as I can tell the glitch always happens a certain length into the audio related to how long the total track is. All it takes is 3-4 re-exports silencing the audio around the point it cuts out until i get the part that is bugged, but i’d rather not have to do this.
I appreciate that with recordings that length i may run into issues but if I can solve it it would really streamline the process.
sorry. Total recording size comes out at about 4.32GB at a 4096kbps bit rate. When I play it in windows media or import it into a video editing program i use, adobe premiere pro. I dont remember what happens when i import it back into audacity, but i know that everything after the glitch isnt there in some form :S. I’m live recording my voice for xbox multiplayer live sessions: My video recording equipment isnt capable of recording my voice. I record using a blue snowball mic attached to my PC. recording at 128000, stereo, 32-bit float.
I export the 2 & 1/2 hour audio and I get a 4.32GB file, but it is only the first 11:15 of the recording. I clean up the audio at the 11.15 mark it sometimes solves the problem, other times i just export the first 11:15 and then cut a second or so out and export the rest separately.
It has happened multiple times. I may record for an hour or so and the “glitch” would seem to occur just a couple of minutes in. It’s a bit bizzare because it happens every time I record and I end up having to either silence a stretch of the audio or chop the file up into multiple parts just to cut around the “glitches”
I hope that’s remotely the info you were asking for. I use audacity plenty but im not what you’d call well versed :S
Edit: I forgot to mention, i’m on Windows 7 64bit.
