pitch change noise

I had to do a few pitch changes in a vocal track using the “change pitch” effect.I notice at the spot of the pitch change there is a ‘click’ or a"pop", or tiny dropout of sound on the track.Is there a way to avoid or fix this ?

In Audacity 1.3.5 the is no drop-out or hole, but but you may still notice a slight glitch as the way that the speed change works does not guarantee that the phase of the new processed audio will match the original. This can be minimised by choosing the start and end points with care (quiet moments, or immediately before a beat make good choices)

To repair a small part like this, zoom in very close on the “bad join” and carefully edit it. Tools such as the “Draw Tool” and the “Repair” effect can come in useful.
