Crash reports

Post by drchanowski » Fri Dec 01, 2017 11:07 pm

I'm operating on an iMac 2012 edition running macOS 10.12.6 with 32Gig of memory. I'm using Audacity 2.2.1
Is there a place here that I can submit crash reports for analysis? I have strange behavior when using the latest version of the app?
It begins randomly sounding like the record I'm recording is skipping but when I look at the app live feed I see that its as if I'm running out of memory.
Sound is gone for a fraction of a second, repeatedly and the gaps continue as grow larger until the app finally crashes.
I thought that someone might be interested in seeing the crash report to see what is happening and what needs to be done to address the problem.

You can post your crash report here. Either attach it as a text file, or paste it in-line in your message. If doing the latter, wrap the crash report in "Code" tags to make it easier to read.
