Hey, guys. I have a problem with Audacity. Let me tell you some specifics on the PC and version that I use. I'm running on Windows 8.1 Pro, and Audacity is v2.0.5. I'm using Blue Yeti to record the audio.
Now here's the problem - Audacity seems to freeze for some seconds and not record anything and then continue like nothing happened. It's like skipping a couple of seconds ahead. I tried it with a stopwatch - I started recording and started the stopwatch. After I was done my stopwatch showed like 8:21 but on Audacity it showed 8:14. Audacity skipped 7 seconds of the recording!
So, my question is what can be the cause of my problem. It's really frustrating, because I have to start over and it seems to do it every time I record, so it's mandatory to get it fixed. I searched a little bit and changed the sample format from 32 to 16 bit. And the Sample rate converter to Fast. I haven't tried it since, but if you have any clue what might be the cause of this freezing in the middle of a recording, please tell me.
Thank you very much!

Ensure you don't have a hyperactive antivirus scanning every piece of data Audacity creates. Also turn off backup services.

Run your Task Manager while you record, sort it by CPU usage, and see what spikes during those recording blackouts.

I see a guy posted this before, but I wanted to shed a little light on it.
FREE CLOUD STORAGE! (20GB + 5GB for each referral - unlimited!)
I use this service from this morning and it's awesome!

1) First you get 20GB of free cloud storage (after you signup, confirm e-mail and install one of their apps).
2) Second - you can extend that storage to UNLIMITED amount by referring friends and family. You get 5GB per referral. You can check out +Chris Pirillo and his TLDR from May 18, 2013 where he shows that he has 5.7TB, yes, TERABYTES of FREE storage.
3) Their platform is pretty awesome - the site, the desktop program (that runs on every OS - Win, Mac, Linux) and the Android and iOS apps - really light, fast and fluid. (my N4 loves it)

These guys seem pretty serious about their service and if you'd like the idea you should check it out by clicking the link below. Happy 'Copy'-ing. :)

Be sure to confirm the e-mail upon registration and install one of their apps (desktop or android), otherwise you'll only get 15GB of storage (instead of 20GB).

Sorry, we don't allow referral/affiliate links in the Geeks Community. We have already removed a number of these copy.com links.

Although it's a great service, as you can imagine, the community could get a little spammy if we allowed everyone to post their referrals.

Hope you understand :)

Хубаво кино. Близко ми е, харесвам опцията за резервация по интернет и винаги я ползвам преди някоя прожекция. Самите зали са добри и като цяло ми харесва.
