URGENT: Error message "Error opening sound device.

I have a super deadline and I’m getting this error message which freezes up Audacity

“Error opening sound device.
Try changing the audio host, playback device and the project sample rate.”

I’m using Audacity 2.3.0
in a Macbook Pro running High Sierrra 10.13.6

I have to solve this ASAP

(Feel free to call. 424 297 6963 any time)

See this page in the Audacity Manual: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/error_opening_sound_device.html


Are you overdubbing? If you are, the recording system and the playback system have to be perfect. The error doesn’t tell you which system failed.
