I have used Audacity for a long time and have no problems with it
Today, when I play back tracks I have imported, it has started to glitch on playback. This has never happened before
When I export the mix and listen to the MP3/WAV there are no glitches
I only get these glitches when I listen in Audacity, and they don’t seem to always be in the same place
Has something happened today to Windows, to Audacity or to me?
Using Audacity 2.3.3
I’ve tried with and without headphones, and switched computer off and on
Still getting glitches when I listen to playback on Audacity, but no glitches when I export the mix and listen through VLC or other media players
Is Audacity displaying the track in the normal “Waveform” view?
Have you customised any audio settings?
What anti-virus / security products do you use?
Try resetting Audacity’s Preferences, just in case you’ve accidentally changed something there. The easiest way to do that is to reinstall Audacity over the top of your current installation, and look for the option to “Reset Preferences” during the installation process. On first run after installing you should be asked to confirm that you want to reset preferences.
Thanks Steve, I’ll give it a go
I was wondering if there is some cache problem. Not that I understand how that would apply to Audacity, but it’s getting worse, more glitches are appearing and more frequently (but not in the same place so probably not a problem with the actual tracks)
Thanks Steve, that seems to have sorted things out. Glitches gone. No idea what I changed but all seem’s well
