Looks like I’m getting the dreaded “Error Saving Project” error that seemed to plague 1.x, but unfortunately, I’m using 2.0.2 (please see attached screenshots).
When I attempt to save my project, which has 3 different stereo tracks, each uniquely named, I get this error. I’ve tried clearing metadata, changing the names of each track (no illegal characters, just letters and numbers now) and I’ve tried a flurry of different folders. The ‘Show Log’ function, however, shows some interesting data. It’s apparently trying to get permissions of files which don’t exist, so I imagine that’s the reason that it can’t save the project - because the source data files it thinks it should be grabbing and saving don’t actually exist (please see attached screenshots). I checked out the folder it’s looking at (screenshot attached) and the files it wants definitely aren’t there…
I’m running 10.8.2 on my MacBook Pro, Audacity 2.0.2, have the OSX Lame library installed (I can export tracks, but that doesn’t help me considering I’m trying to record various song parts - aside form not losing what I’ve recorded completely, forever…).
Thoughts? Any solution I don’t know about? Should I grab a nightly? I haven’t tried that yet, but then again, I don’t really want to close Audacity and lose everything forever. I grabbed it’s temporary project and saved that off, but frankly, I don’t have the balls to just close audacity and hope that temp project has all my data. I figure, if it can’t save the project, I’m going to be safe and assume the temp project also does not have accurate data.
Thanks in advance!
