Audacity 2.4.1

When I export a flac to wav where the original file runs directly into the next (often the case in long pieces that are split into several tracks) Audacity crashes when the flac is closed on completion of the wav, so I have to restart the programme & clear the recoverable file. Is there any way to get round this?

What do you mean?

I am using Audacity to convert flac rips to wavs. Normally this works fine using a macro, but with files that divide a long stretch of music into several parts (so the change from one to the next is inaudible when listening) the program terminates when a file is converted & has to be restarted & the ‘rescued’ file discarded. Is that any clearer?

I don’t know what that means in terms of the file format. Is the problem just with long FLAC files?

Would it not be simpler to just use a format converter such as “SoundConverter”?

Tahnk you for your message. Sound Converter does the job, but, as I find with many such programmes, there is noise as one passes from one track to the next. MT
