This page contains details of Audacity problems that are identified after a version has been released, and so are not included in the "Known Issues at Release" section of the Release Notes for current stable and Beta versions. This page will be cleared after each release of Audacity, as all issues will by then either be fixed or appear as known issues in the Release Notes for the new version.


Please do not use this page to report problems you are having with Audacity or suspected bugs, as it will not be regularly checked by the support team. Instead, please see our Reporting Bugs page for advice on how to identify your problem and report it to us if you need to.


Audacity 1.3.7: Released 28 January 2009 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

Active issues


Fixed in CVS

These problems have been fixed in the latest development code, meaning that if you compile Audacity yourself from that code, or use one of our nightly development builds, these issues should not occur. Unless stated otherwise, they will still be present in the released binary versions or source tarballs available on our download page


Mac only

  • AIFF files cannot be imported and will freeze Audacity. Workaround: Convert the files to WAV in iTunes.
