I have just installed the latest version of Audacity (2.0) and used it to record 4 LPs. On each side of each LP, the sounds starts to deteriorate after around 14 minutes.
These are old LPs and cheap equipment so I am not expecting brilliant quality, but these are unlistenable - crackly, and distorted (eg. Herp Albert sounds like he is playing a Kazoo rather than a trumpet).
If it wasn’t for the fact that it happens around the same place each side, I would have thought it could be interference.
Could it be a memory or buffer issue?
Thanks for any pointers!
