Hi, the header really says it all. All the other effects - I have tested almost all of them, I believe - work 100% error-free. Only the Multiband EQ causes trouble - and that, every time. The tracks are not ultra long. I haven’t tried in short chunks yet, though. Might there be another, non-crashing Multiband EQ plugin somewhere?
Hi Steve! It’s in one of the plugin bundles - I fail to remember which, but probably the large one. If you are Steve Harris, it’s one of yours. I tried it just now for a shorter chunk and it didn’t crash, so it works at least partially.
I’ll also check if there’s a fresh version of Audacity - mine is some months old at least.
My problem has been solved but for general interest: mono tracks, length not exceeding 5 minutes I’m pretty sure (if they did, not by much) - no particular settings (not on that effect - it crashed every time and my tweaking was pretty random) - the whole project might have contained 8 tracks but not much more. I don’t remember the sample rate and bit depth but whatever you get straight off Tascam DP-0004 and such. 44100 and, um…? The computer is just a cheap, off-the-shelf eMachines laptop so that’s where I would look for the fault first, though.
Maybe; I’m not sure if the Equaliser effect already was available in the previous version - I think 2.0.2. If it was I hadn’t used it because the name has been translated into Finnish; I’m Finnish myself but I’ve only thought of EQ as EQ, not “Taajuuskorjain” - which is correct but not a regular term in my vocabulary. I wasn’t curious enough to see what that might be (if it was on the list). Now that I knew it was there, I started using my head a bit.
This is sometimes an issue with translations. There is so much “technical” equipment and software released in English only (usually “American English” if you don’t mind the oxymoron), that people become familiar with the English terms. In some cases the English term is so widely used that it can be better to not translate the word.
Translations of the Audacity interface and manual is a huge, ongoing task. New volunteers to help with the task are always welcome. I can send you details if you have time and are interested.
Yes, the Equalization effect was available in 2.0.2. It’s been a part of Audacity since 1.3.something.
