Freezing when moving audio to different track.

At some point within the past few days I’ve run into an issue. Whenever I try to move a bit of audio from one track to another Audacity freezes once the track is moved. I can only then close the program and restart.
I run a version of Arch on my laptop and so it’s quite possible there was an update that broke something. But does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this and how to fix it? It makes editing all but impossible now.


Where does Audacity come from? Is it an ancient version supplied by arch? See the pink panel at the top of the page for how to give us your Audacity version number. If the tracks are at different sample rates it could be a resampling problem.

Perhaps you should try building Audacity from source code:
