Yes, it plays back the same every time and it is visible in the wavefile too. Screenshot here:
I measure it to about 3768 samples, which doesn't seem to hold any relevance to me. Had it been 4096 maybe, but thats too long, and 2048 is too short.
Thanks for the link, I've read that, and I understand what a buffer is and how it works, hence my confusion - because it doesn't appear to be doing anything. I have it set at 6 seconds and I'm getting recording and playback almost instantaneously. I can't see/hear the effect of buffer length anywhere.kozikowski wrote: ↑Wed Oct 14, 2020 1:23 amhttps://manual.audacityteam.org/man/dev ... ences.html
Scroll down to Latency > Buffer Length.
Is buffer strictly for offline processing?
With regards to my hypothesis about the AC, turns out that's not the culprit. I just started a rip with the AC unit turned off, and I've already gotten two glitches. Could still be another power issue but nothing obvious.
Tried and true Technics 1200 mk5. I've used this exact turntable to rip hundreds of records into a different setup and she runs like you'd expect - perfectly. To your most recent post, this particular turntable has been internally grounded, for better or for worse.Which turntable?
The glitch is definitely digital, I'm just on a new setup, so I was looking for general advice I might have missed to improve signal flow into this old machine. I will probably try a different surge protector and get a nice power supply anyway to continue to eliminate variables. I'll also try ripping to a different computer. It's frustrating cause nothing seems to make a difference, and it would appear this thing is more than capable, its just that 0.001% failure rate that is killing my rips.
