Envelope tool could be used to reduce the volume of the skip , (and does not effect timing) ...

Could select the skip noise, then delete it, but that could muck-up the timing of the music.

How big is the skip (number of samples)?

If it's small enough (less tan 128 samples) you could use Effect>Repair

If it's longer you can try the Draw tool (in the Tools toolbar) to redraw the waveform manually.

See this tutorial in the Audacity ManualL https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tut ... iques.html

If the record is literally skipping ahead by one or more grooves, have you tried increasing the tracking force or playing with the anti-skate adjustment (if your turntable has an anti-skate adjustment)?

If you upload/attach a short sample with the skip in the middle, we can play with it. If it's actually skipping-ahead a longer sample would be better so we can get the "context". (A longer sample would have to be MP3 or other compressed format, due to size limits.)


its not a skip that keeps repeating itself..its a skip that happens once and then the tonearm
keeps going..
If the record skips-ahead we call that a "skip" and if it skips-back we say the record is "stuck".
