I’m working on an audiobook, so some of my files are several (between 4 and 10) tracks on the average of 40 minutes long.
From time to time, the playback has these hitches, moments when it pauses, then continues a split second later (making the word sound like a different word in a few cases and just like a hiccup most others). This makes it hard to proof the line up of various tracks. It doesn’t always do this, and if I stop and back up, it doesn’t do it again at that spot, but will again 15-50 seconds later.
I’m also having occasional issues with the file not responding or taking forever to run a compression or save, no matter how small the file. I don’t think it’s even consistent.
(also having an occasional issue where I’ll go back for a listen and a whole track will be missing and I have to reedit or rerecord)
Here are screen shots of both my computer set up and my audacity. It’s a brand new computer with a lot of memory and a 4T hard drive. (I moved the files from the 1T drive to the 4T, cause it’s nearly full and I thought the older drive might be the problem)
