weird static-y audio glitch when using punch-and-roll recording

Hi there! So…this weird glitch keeps periodically, randomly and unpredictably recurring wherein my audio suddenly has a strange static to it. I know it has to be happening within the software - rather than being a hardware issue like my mic, cables, etc. - because it always occurs at the start of a new punch, and then it will always go away if I punch in anew.

You can listen to a sample of what I’m talking about here:
In the first clip, the glitch comes in at about 5 seconds on the word “Dada”. In the second clip, the glitch is present the whole time.

I am using Audacity 3.2.5, I’m on Windows 10, and I did download Audacity from Audacity’s website.

I’m really, really hoping someone can help me because I love Audacity and I don’t want to switch software if I can help it!!! Thank you in advance. :slight_smile:
