Hello. Newbie to this forum.
Have been using Audacity since maybe 2005.
Currently, I have a MacBook Pro with macOS Sierra and Audacity 2.2.2
I use Audacity mostly to capture Internet streamingr adio shows.
There was a show that I wanted to listen to this morning, but it was before I planned on getting up, so I set Audacity to start recording the Internet streaming radio station last night before I went to bed. (The idea being that it would still be recording over night and when the show started at 8:00am while I was still sleeping!)
I have done this for over a decade, and as long as you don’t go over 12 hours it seems to work fine.
Well, I only slept for 7 hours last night, and when I got up this morning my show was still streaming, and Audacity was recording it, however the counter showed like 2 hours and 40 some minutes which is impossible?!
At the next commercial break, I saved the file. And then I started up a new file to record the rest of the show.
After the show was over, I went back and listened to the first file/project and the first song I heard was the first sing I started recording last night before bed. (I know this because it was a Rush song that I like and haven’t heard in ages!)
But shortly after this first song played, things got really strange.
Basically the recording reminded me when I was growing up in the 70s and you’d flip through the radio dial to find a song you liked. (Or like the intro to the TV show “WKRP Cincinnati”
There would be a song that would play for maybe 10-30 seconds and then you’d hear a jump to another song that sounde dlike the radio knob being dialed. THis went on and on for about 20 minutes until it was clear that my recording was toast!
My hard-drive is full, but I have like 35GB left, so that shouldn’t cause any issues.
And again, I started recording at about 4:30am and got up at Noon at which time Audacity showed it had been recording for like 2 hr and 40 min
Lastly, I recorded a 2 hour show last night while I was busy listening to another show on another MBP, and that two hour show seems to have recorded okay - listened to the first two songs and they were okay - but now I am paranoid that I cannot trust thi sMacBook Pro and/or Audacity.
What in the world is going on??
