I’m using Windows 7 and Audacity 2.3.3.

I’ve generated a click track of about 3 minutes long.

I then create a new mono track and press the home key to get to the beginning of the click track. I select the new track and press the ‘R’ key and Audacity starts recording to the new track just after the end of the click track. This is not what I want at all. I would like to record over the click track I’ve created from the beginning. What am I doing wrong?


Appending recording is now the default setting in Audacity.
If you want to go back to the old way where it always starts recording from zero,
go to Audacity Preferences : Recording, & tick “Record on a new track”,
see … https ://manual.audacityteam.org/man/recording_preferences.html

R and Shift+R are backwards. You can just know that, or, as above, reverse it back the way it was in Audacity preferences.
