Hello, so I’ve been using Audacity for a while. I record speeches and music, and today I finished two projects. So after I saved them, I thought “why not go listen before I publish them?” And so I did…And one of the files I recorded was LITERALLY 7 seconds long. No where NEAR the time I had it. And the other project had some audio cut out.
Unfortunately I didn’t save when I exited out because I’d never had this problem…Can someone PLEASE tell me what the problem is and if I can recover them? I don’t even want to use Audacity to complete my other 4 projects in the case that the same weird errors might occur. What’s worse is that the internet has no solution for this. Help please. I’m on Windows 7 and Audacity 2.1.2
An “Audacity Project” is not a “file”. It is a file and a folder.
Did you “save the project”, or “export an audio file”?
If the latter, what format did you export as, and what length did you expect the file to be?
Yes I’m sure it’s 2.1.2. Also I exported the audio as mp3, but I might’ve hit export SELECTED audio. In that event, is there a way I can go back and compile all the tracks instead of only having one track? Again, I didn’t save before exiting. I expected both to be around 2-3 mins.
