Hey guys, so I am using Audacity to record music and edit my vocals. I have ran into a very annoying problem that I hope to get resolved. This has happened three times already recently where I save my project but all of a sudden it just shuts down when I am in the middle of mix and rendering my stereo tracks.
When I reopen my project, its says that there is 1300 orphan files (which I have no idea what that means) but I usually press “continue without deleting”. Then I press “recover projects”. However when I performed this, I got a message from the Audacity command stating that it has failed to recover my project. This got me really mad because I spent hours on hours editing my vocals, making it sound perfect, and this happens…
So when I go see my existing track… all I see is blank tracks with NO waveforms what so ever… I still see my separate stereo tracks but nothing inside of them… heartbreaking,
I have to note that one time when this incident happened, my waveform did MAGICALLY reappear after reopening the track several times to see if I get a different result… BUT that time, my audacity didn’t shut down on me randomly, I just woke up one morning wanting to hear my track, and it was blank… all the stereo tracks had no waveforms… my audio disappeared… If ANYBODY can help me this issue, that would be blessed, I’m really trying to recover my track so my hard work doesn’t go to waste!! Thank you.
