I’m using 2.3.0 and am recording a simple V.O. with midi music background. For some reason whenever I open the Mixer the program crashes. This seems to only happen when I have a Midi file loaded.
I don’t know why it’s crashing but Audacity isn’t a MIDI application. It has some VERY limited MIDI capabilities.
Unfortunately this appears to be a new bug in Audacity 2.3.0. I shall log it on the bug tracker.
Is there a way to install 2.2?
Go here: http://www.oldfoss.com/Audacity.html
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select version 2.2.2
Then click on the link “audacity-win-2.2.2.exe” (Windows installer).
When the download has completed, double click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install Audacity 2.2.2 over the top of your current version.
