everu time I record it adds a 2 second silence

Hi everyone

I’ve just started to use the latest version of audacity this evening and it is adding a silence of about 2 seconds each time I record or use the punch roll feature. I don’t know if I have inadvertanly clicked on something. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the software.

I would be grateful for any help.

Thanks

Sean

You can reset Audacity to “factory defaults” by reinstalling and during the installation, select the option to “Reset Preferences”. On first run after reinstalling, confirm that you want to reset preferences (when prompted).
