I have been using Audacity for several years now.
Yesterday, I installed 2.0.2 and assigned my soundcard to Audacity. I brought in a file (32bit float - 96k) and pressed the space and/or the play button on the transport bar. The play button appears to have been pressed. Nothing moves. The cursor won’t move and, of course, no sound. The cursor line also becomes invisible. I press stop and the play button pops up and the cursor line reappears.
So I assigned my internal soundcard and opened a 44.1k file (that’s as high as it will go; maybe 48k) and it played. This is obviously no use to me since all my files are in 96k. I have been using Audacity primarily for denoising tracks. This is the best denoiser I’ve used; ease of use and great parameter shaping.
Now here’s something interesting. Yesterday, I decided to uninstall version 2.0.2 and replace it with version 2.0.1…and it worked perfectly. I pressed play and it worked without a hitch. So I get up this morning, ready to dive into my work and this older version now doesn’t work; just like yesterday before I changed versions. So I’ll be changing back to the newer version.
Can anyone solve this mystery? Is there a setting that I missed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
