This is so frustrating. I’ve been struggling with latency issues for about a year now. Saw that 2.0 was released, and installed hoping that would help. Now I can’t even generate a click track. I’ve re-installed the Nyquist and LADSPA plugins (as far as I can tell), and I’ve told Audacity to rescan for VST effects, which it did. But I go to Generate, and my options are limited to: Chirp, DTMF Tones, Noise, Silence, (line break) Nonbandlimited single-sample impulses, sine + cosine oscillator.
Nothing else. Please help. Click tracks are the basis for every one of my projects.
EDITED TO ADD VERSION AND INSTALLER TYPE:
V 2.0.5 for Windows
Installer was the .exe
Hi, Gale! And, yes, sorry for the confusion: I “upgraded” (or updated) to 2.0.5 (just edited my original post to add that, before I saw your reply). It was in this switchover from 2.03 to 2.05 where the click vanished. (I, for some reason, thought I was previously using a 1.x version before, but you’re right, it was 2.03)
I do have the same machine. It’s frustrating, because this is a fairly powerful machine with lots of space left, and I do not use it for anything but recording (and very light browsing: email, file transfers, posting on this message board). I don’t use it for anything else. So while I don’t doubt that it’s a computer problem, I am scratching my head as to WHY it’s a computer problem. My much less powerful, much more bogged-down old laptop never had latency issues.
OK, I see the folder, and am looking in there, and that file is not there. I will re-install. Nyquist was not/is not unchecked.
Wow, reinstalled, and it’s there! Now back to my ongoing latency crisis. BTW, I thought last year when we were discussing this, you said new versions would come with auto-correction for latency? Is that still a possibility? If it were, it would make variable latency a non-issue (assuming Audacity corrected it specifically for each take, rather than just making an average or mean correction).
