Hey guys! FIrst post on this forum because I could not find my answer after a lot of searching. I am using Mac Seirra 10.12.6. I am also using the latest version of Audacity 2.2.
I am recording a podcast with another host using 2 separate mics routed into mixing board that is hooked up via USB to my laptop.FYI- I don’t have any other programs open while recording. While recording, it seems like everything is going perfect! Until… I hit the stop button at the end of the podcast and I get the rainbow wheel of death for like 5 minutes. And then I get this pop up that says “some of the audio wasn’t recorded” and I am left with this… (see attached image).
Okay great! I will adjust the buffer length.
I also had safari and iMessage closed during the recording. I restart my laptop just before recording and dont open any other programs besides Audacity just so i keep my cpu process as quick as possible… because this has happened to me multiple times and its really messing up my podcasts. Should I turn dropout detection off??
