First post… I had a very quick search and couldn’t find an answer, so sorry if I’ve missed this.
I’m using Audacity 2.0.3, Windows 8 64 bit. But I’ve also experience this with a Windows 7 32 bit OS.
So I have some turntables, samplers, synths, etc. I’ve recorded the noise I make into Audacity. Certain bits I want to chop up/repeat. One track in particular, I tried and tired to copy and paste a certain bit of audio, and every time I copied it, upon pasting it would just be silence. I thought it was a problem with the one track, maybe its corrupt. I rebuilt my PC, totally different hardware, installed Windows 8 x64 (rather than Win 7 32) and opened the track and had the same problem. Ok, corrupt track I thought. But I’ve just experienced the same thing on a totally different track.
So on a single stereo track, I copy a section, paste it after the selection, and all I get is silence. hope that makes sense. Any suggestions welcome, sorry if I’m missing any key details. please let me know and I will tell you
