Audacity 2.2.1 crashing when I try to being recording

I'm using an iMac with a 2.5 GHz i5 processor running High Sierra 10.13.2. My audio feed is coming from a Presonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI via S800 FireWire. After applying all the proper system settings to the iMac to ensure proper audio, once I hit record Audacity crashes and closes. Then when I re-open the file is available for recovery, but actually recovering it crashes the program again. Could it be a result of downloading the LAME Encoder for mp3 file export? My church uses this recording method for our sermons, but use mp3 file types to upload to our website for listening. Thanks!
