Audacity Freezes When Amplifying on Mac

Every time I try to use the amplify effect on a project, Audacity freezes.

Tried shutting down computer and re-installing app but no luck.

What version of Audacity? What version of macOS? What Mac?

  1. Make sure that your version of Audacity is up-to-date. You can check for updates by going to the “Help” menu and selecting “Check for Updates.”
  2. Try using a different audio file or project to see if the issue persists. If the issue only occurs with a specific project, there may be something in that project causing the problem.
  3. Check your computer’s system resources to ensure that there is enough available memory and processing power to run Audacity and the Amplify effect.
  4. If the issue persists, you may want to try using a different audio editing software to see if the same issue occurs. If the problem only occurs with Audacity, you may want to consider uninstalling and reinstalling the software.

Reinstalling does not help. Instead of reinstalling you should do Tools (menu) > Reset Configuration.

Ah okay, gotcha! Will try this!
