The following are new problems I’ve never had before:
I had finished recording a chapter and was proofing it. When I went to fix an error in the stairstep method, it was picking up on the same line instead. I had set that up two years ago in Audacity Preferences for “Record on a new track.” But today, it’s no longer doing that, even though I haven’t changed that preference.
My timer was also wrong. It was set up for hh:mm:ss + hundreths, but that’s not how the numbers looked when I went to highlight the silence to meet ACX’s rules (i.e., 00:03:50 at the end). The counter should be 00:00:00 to start with so that, as I highlight the blank space, I will eventually have 00:03:50. Instead the numbers started at 07:36:99. It also says 21 mins. at the beginning of the chapter instead of :50
This is bizarre. Every time I go in there, something new is wrong. Now, I hear my voice twice (like an echo of my voice). My setting is in mono. My mic settings have not been touched… Is there a corruption of some kind, or is it just possessed? :>)
I would appreciate help with this as my hair is on fire. Thanks.
