I’m using Audacity 2.0.6 on Win7 and I encounter some troubles while importing a stereo track (WAV 44.1KHz) to a project in which mono tracks are already imported.
I tried to import, to slide from the folder or to copy/paste the track (converted or not as a mono track) from a newly created project, but it always ends with the creation of a new empty track.
I’ve searched the forum but no subject came out to help me, so if you’ve have any idea of what’s happening and how to fix this problem (I never had with older version of Audacity)… be my guest!
Sorry but I don’t understand what copy/paste has to do with import. Perhaps you are using the wrong words to describe what you are trying to do.
Perhaps the file you are importing is corrupted so that the file headers say the file has no length.
Perhaps your first imported song is very long and the next imported song is only a few seconds long. In that case the second song will appear to have an empty track because the project is still fitted to the length of the very long song. The solution to that is to View > Zoom in (CTRL + 1).
I would suggest you record the problem with Windows Problem Steps Recorder then post the zip file for us to download on Dropbox or your favourite file storage service. Be sure to share the file so that we can access it.
This message prompts up after I imported a video from Youtube “Audacity attempted to use FFmpeg to import an audio file, but the libraries were not found. To use FFmpeg , go to Preferences>Libraries to download or locate the FFmpeg libraries.”
Where can I find Preferences. I downloaded the latest version. Sorry I am no good at computer. Help will be most appreciated. Thank you.
