I am new to this forum and very impressed with Audacity as a open source application.
However, I am having a problem. I am using Audacity to record my uncle’s reel to reel tapes of American jazz radio from the 70’s. This results in 2 hour long recordings (per side). The problem I am having is that after the recording when I push the stop button Audacity becomes unresponsive while processing the data. This takes very long (30 minutes). After that it reports the los of data which is marked in de final project file. The loss of data is substantial and occurs in multiple places in the recording. With a shorter one hour recording I had no problems at all.
OS-X 10.13 on a Mac Pro
Audacity and the OS are on an SSD drive
and I am recording on a different internal harddrive
I did “save project as” before I started the recording
I found posts on Audacity 2.3.0 crashing or freezing but not quite the same situation as I’m having.
Any help is very much appreciated.
