Just upgraded to v. 2.3.0. Using Win10 64-bit.
Previous versions of Audacity would take about a minute or two to run Silence Finder on about 60 minutes of audio. After installing 2.3.0 the same length audio file takes ten to fifteen minutes to execute. Since I made no changes to any Settings or Prefs after the upgrade, I can’t imagine what has happened. This seems like a bug.
That being said, I should mention that there are no error messages and the operation (eventually) delivers correct results in the Label Track. The delay is quite apparent. Have used Silence Finder several hundred times over the last two years, so it’s clear to me that this slowed behavior is very different than in previous Audacity versions.
Any suggestions or assistance will be greatly appreciated.
