A possible warning to users of Audacity

Everything and anything, but nothing about the LinuxSampler project.

A possible warning to users of Audacity

Postby dahnielson » Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:24 am

I'm developing a sample library. Last night Audacity corrupted 2 hours of recording and editing. Here's what happened:

1. Start Audacity.

2. Record a couple of seconds.

3. Save the project.

4. Close the project/exit Audacity.

5. Start Audacity.

6. Open the previously saved project.

7. Getting this:

Code: Select all
23.05.28: Orphaned blockfile: (/home/anders/Studio/sessions_audacity/ritmo/test_data/e00/d00/e000042f.au)
23.05.28: Project check found inconsistencies inspecting the loaded project data; click 'Details' for a complete list of errors, or 'OK' to proceed to more options.


Oh, and get this, the recommended option in the dialog is to delete the block files, a.k.a in my case as every audio block in the project.

BTW, I'm using Audacity 1.3.4-beta (says the "About"-dialog) on Gentoo (where the package is named 'audacity-1.3.4-r1').

I've also posted about it in the Audacity forum.

Weird stuff...

Anders,

Rezound have proved highly versatile as an alternative to audacity, at least for me.

Perhaps an alternative?

Yes, I'm using Rezound too. But I can't find any snap to "zero crossing" selection method that Audacity has which is gold when trimming samples. What I'm doing now is to never save the data as an Audacity project, I export audio to 32-bit float WAVE instead and labels as a text file in addition to using "export selection" (one directory for the split untrimmed and another directory for trimmed samples).

Anders,

Perhaps it's worth sending a note to the rezound devs, and asking them to consider this as an addition to the programme.

Yes, I will probably do that with a list of other things. But right now I must get back to editing... :|

I'm building all dependencies for Jokosher at the moment. Can't wait to try it out! It looks like my cup o' tea; being developed in Python and extensions friendly. An alternative to writing your own solution from scratch.
