I recently downloaded 2.2.1 and honestly I’m not thrilled. I don’t like the look and I find some new features annoying.
Previously, when I needed to re-record a portion of a recording, I would stop at given area and hit record. Audacity would then open a new track, I would record, cut and paste it into my existing track. Now, when I attempt to do that, the program acts as if I’m appending a previous recording…it picks up at the end of my previous recording and records.
I’ve tried shift record and ctrl record but they don’t seem to work.
If not, can I get back to the last version of the software?
Hello. I have audacity 2.2.1. I am using windows 7. I was recording a song and I wanted to add a harmony in over a chorus. I clicked on the previous track, in the place where I wanted to start recording the harmony. Then I clicked record. Usually this would start recording right where I had clicked, but instead it sent me to the end of the track and started recording from the end. I could not record a second track. It would only start recording, adding onto the previous track. Then I tried simply hitting the back to start button, and pushed record. It started recording onto the end of the first track again. To reproduce the problem, record a track of audio, and then try to add another piece of audio underneath it. It would not let me do this. Thank you so much.
