I have spent hours researching this issue and have not found a single relevant solution. I’m really hoping that someone in the Audacity community can help.
I’m using Audacity 2.0.5 on Mac OSX 10.9.2
The project I’m working on involves assembling many tracks of audio from different sources — USB Mic, Conference call recording, professional music tracks, MP3’s we ripped off of our old YouTube videos, tracks recorded with iPhones or cameras — into a single composition. What has been happening is the Left/Right output has been glitching out. (See screenshot.)
I’ve been trying to eliminate variables which might be causing this:
All of the tracks by themselves (prior to importing into this project) do not have this issue.
When I select Solo on a track, that track plays back correctly.
When I play the music track (“BecVar Mus”) it doesn’t have this issue.
When I resample all tracks to be the same rate, it does not solve the issue.
When the music tracks are playing, things sound just fine, but when the vocal (talking) tracks are playing, it does.
Once I export to MP3 everything seems to sound fine.
Do you have any solutions coming to mind which might solve this?
