Here’s a bug I’ve encountered numorus times: after copy/pasting bits of a track, the envelope tool does not
work. Specificly, trying to place a new control point is messed up: sometimes you can’t place a control point
at all, sometimes it places it far back from where you clicked. Again, this happens after copying and pasting some
audio in the track.
OS: Window 10. Audacity Version: 3.2.3, downloaded from official site.
I can’t reproduce this on W10 with 3.2.3
There are a couple of known envelope-related issues: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/4076
Also, see: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+envelope
but none of these seem to describe your issue.
Can you reliably recreate your issue with a brand new project, using Generate, say, Chirp, to create audio ?
If so, please post instructions to do so - the developers need to know.
Ok, I think I managed to reproduce the bug reliably: it happens when after pasting an audio bit, the track becomes longer than the original length.
Here’s a link to a GIF showing the bug:
- Generate Chirp, 30 seconds.
- Play with envelope tool.
- Copy and paste part of the audio, so that the end result exceeds 30 seconds.
- Try the envelope tool again, in a point past the 30 seconds mark.
Let me know if this helps
A trouble issue has been reported to the developers based on your research: https://github.com/audacity/audacity/issues/4250
We’ll see what the developers do with it.
Thank you! much appreciated RL
