I have Audacity 2.03 and Windows XP. Audacity worked OK until I did the following:
I had recorded 2 songs from Youtube without any problem. I then did File/Export Multiple and
then by error before doing this, I did not grey the entire wave form and Normalize but instead returned the
wave form to the beginnng and did Control + B to name the first song which created the
following problem which would not rectify itself when Audacity was exited and the computer
shut off and restarted. I should add that after recording the songs, I edited them for preparation for export to Windows Media without any problems.
The following was the result:
- Horizontal blue lines a few milimeters thick appeared at the top and bottom of each wave form
- The wave forms were then divided with two dark grey horizontal lines at the top and bottom, both the same thickness and using about half of the wave form. It is the normal grey
colour for shading.
- Sandwiched in between these blue and dark grey lines is the normal colour.
The normal colour can not be made to shade grey so fading in and fading out is not possible.
Recording new songs is erratic. The wave form and sound on occasion will simply stop and
after a few seconds will start again. This can repeat and repeat. Using Undo was of no help.
Simply put, in this state, Audacity cannot be used
What can I do to return Audacity to normal ?
