Operating system Fedora workstation 37

System Memory 16 GB
Storage 1 TB (Free 600 GB) Storage medium Solid state
Audacity Version 3.2.2
When trying to record a LP I run out of memory at about the 25 minute mark. The system just crashes. By monitoring the system during recording the Memory starts of at about 2.3 GB (basic operating system I believe) but after about 5 minutes of recording the memory usage climbs as the recording proceeds until the 16 GB marks when the system crashes. During the recording the Storage capacity does not seem to reduce but this may not show as a few hundred MB may not register given the storage capacity available.
My understanding is that Audacity does not use the memory to save the data in during record but records in a temp director on the disk storage. If this is so why do I seem to have a problem with memory? Can any one help as I can not find any setting that may assist.
