Hi - I am having trouble with recording audio using Audacity on my Mac laptops. On both laptops I am running OS X 10.10.3 and Audacity 2.1. This problem has been in place across earlier versions of both Audacity and OS X.
what happens is that if I record a long program, after a certain amount of time, the recording becomes choppy with a ticking sound in it. What is odd is that on my MacBook Air 11" it will happen after approximately 90 minutes (give or take a few). On my newer MacBook Pro Retina 13", it happens after about 30 minutes.
Has anyone run into this before? Is there a solution?
I am trying to record a long program (around 4.5 hours) and will then export it to MP3 in smaller chunks. Now, I have to make separate recordings in Audacity for each hour or so which makes the total process more labor intensive.
