choppy voice recording

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.

I have a Macbook Pro with a 256 SSD - and using my Edirol UA-1EX to record from HM radio I get no such skips.

My Audacity and MBP settings are all default.

Yeah ... shut down everything, restarted everything and have uninstalled and reinstalled Audacity at least three times.

Reinstalling Audacity won't help.

Sorry, Denis, but we all seem to have drawn a blank. None of us can reproduce the problem (no-one here has your model of MBP), and we've pointed you to all the advice we know.

You may be able to use a different program (Garage Band?) to record your programs, then bring the recording into Audacity to edit.

Other free multi-platform audio-editors are available, e.g. ocenaudio.

Hey thanks for the ideas, folks. Using Grarage Band now but wanted more control and still uncertain where the glitch is, could pass it on (?) Will look at that other platform. Again thanks.
