When I press record again it seems to record on a different track from the beginning, and then when I play back it plays both recordings at the same time.
- Press the Pause button (or “P” key) rather than the Stop button if you just want to pause the recording and then resume.
- If you need to “Stop” then resume, use Shift + R to “append record”.(also available in the Transport menu).
Thank you. How do the same on Mac?
P, Stop, and Shift-R work on all three computers.
I did that on Mac and it suddenly played back a second of what I just recorded as I was recording.
I think you are describing a known Audacity bug. Try turning Overdub off (in the Transport Menu). Does that work for you?
