Audio makes clicking sound/distorts at 28 min. mark

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

Audio makes clicking sound/distorts at 28 min. mark

This has happened several times now, but when I record audio using a USB mic, at around the 28 minute mark, the audio begins to get distorted. It gradually gets worse and lasts approximately 10 minutes then goes back to normal.

I've attached an example.

Thanks for any help!

What Mac are you using? With a Fusion drive, perhaps?

And what USB mic?

Besides, we'd like you to tell us your version of Audacity and OSX too. Makes our life a little easier :lol:

Sorry.

Using an Air 10.12.6 OS Sierra ( I don't know what a Fusion Drive is)

I just record directly into Audacity on the computer. Version 2.1.2

I use two different mics:

AudioTechnica AT2020USB condenser mic
CAD U37 condenser mic

This happened a few times with Wordpad, so I went back to Audacity and it happened again. Again, it's always right at 28 minute mark and lasts 10 minutes.
