Hello. For some years now I’ve used Audacity 2.1.2 on a 2012 Samsung i5 chip Windows 7 laptop (Norton virus protection) to record various radio broadcasts, which has worked very well with no issues at all.
With support for Windows 7 about to end, I’ve just now got a new HP i7 chip Windows 10 laptop (McAfee virus protection). The new laptop appears to be working ok with Office 365 etc, and seemed to be ok with newly installed (from Audacity) 2.3.3 software.
This records radio broadcasts ok, but there seems to be a degree of “stickiness” in playback quality - not much admittedly, but enough to render for me the recordings useless (inevitably, you find yourself listening for the blips). I’ve tried re-installing, but the result is the same. Interestingly, I tried playing 2.3.3 recordings from the HP laptop in 2.1.2 on the Samsung laptop and the playback seems to be fine.
Taking 2.1.2 recordings from the Samsung which play fine and playing them back in 2.3.3 on the HP comes back with the same problem. That to me implies a 2.3.3 issue on the HP, though I guess conceivably it could be a random HP laptop issue. The source broadcast data plays fine through both laptops.
I’d be grateful for any help or guidance anyone can give to help sort this issue - at not too sophisticated level as I’m afraid I’m not perhaps as technically aware as I’d like to be. With thanks and best wishes. Chris p.s. I guess another option might be to try loading Audacity 2.1.2 (assuming that’s still available) onto the HP laptop, though I haven’t tried that yet…
