Audacity Version: 2.4.1
OS: Windows 10, version 1809
Hello, I just lost all of the audio in every sample i have in my .AUP project file.
The project file retained the name of every sample, the length, and the gain…but there is no waveform, thus no sound. just a flat blue line.
I can even apply effects such as a speed change and the sample will shorten, or i can amplify it…and it will show the max amplification before clipping. So it is as if Audacity knows everything about the samples, but lost the actual sound for them.
I attempted to import the associated .AU files from the project_data folder, and they also contain no audio information.
Here is the last thing i recall:
Audacity crashed, and I made a successful recovery. I saved the file and began working again. Then the DEBUG REPORT “AUDACITY” dialog box appeared. I get this a lot. But this time, a massive amount of small dialog boxes appeared, each stating the same thing about about every sample in the project. I can’t recall exactly what the error was, but it was something about "the sample “xxxxx” cannot “???” there were probably about 60 or so of those boxes. i just kept closing them and then Audacity crashed again. I opened Audacity again, but this time there was no recovery dialog box available, and all of the samples lost their sound. I have read through so many of your FAQs and tips for recovery…but I have a feeling my project may be destroyed and lost forever.
- All of my other projects are still fully intact.
- Is there anything you can do on your end, if I bundled up my project data and sent it to you?
- What did i do that caused this?
Thank you very much for reading this, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
