|This page is to track the early issues with Unitary Project.
UP-01 - initial launch
On initial launch I got a message asking if I wanted to associate .aup3 files with Audacity to click on for launch.
I never normally see such a message with any new versions.
I don't get this on Mac Catalina
UP-02 - Save Project grayed-out
Launched OK but when I went to Save the empty project (a practice we recommend) the Save Project was grayed-out and unavailable.
This is a regression on 2.4.2 and earlier.
UP-03 - Drag&Drop
I can't drag&drop a .aup3 file onto an open Audacity project window. From discussions with Leland I was expecting to be able to.
UP-04 - more on Save Project
UP-05 - Amplify crashes
UP-06 - Save location and name
a) a very unsuitable location "Session Data" folder - should be last used save location or default location if first ever save
b) a rather oddly constructed name ...
had I done that with 2.4.2 it would have offered Niamh's.aup so I was expecting Niamh's.aup3
Similar on Mac
UP-07 - new project save name and location
This time made a short recording an went to save the project
a) I get offered a different inappropriate name - see image
with 2.4.2 this File Name field would be blank for the user to type
b) note that when I click the down arrow I get offered a duplicate of UP1.aup3
Similar on Mac and Linux
UP-08 - last-used location not remembered
But if I close and reopen Audacity the the offered location is "Session Data" again and not the last-used location from previous use of Audacity.
UP-09 - error opening empty project
On Mac opening an empty project causes an immediate crash - and the spinning beachball-of-death !
And now I find that I can open projects - but get an error with an empty project
With UP3 open I used File >Open to successfully open UP2
But when I tried to open UP1 which was an empty project I Got the error you can see. Clicking OK does not open UP1 but leaves Audacity open as a new project.
UP-10 - timing tests
UP-3.0.0 is a little slower than 2.4.2 right now 0 except for MP3 export which seems bang on the money.
Amplify takes more than double the time though.
Test file is a 3-hour stereo audio file
UP-3.0.0 1) Import 3-hour WAV 1:31 2) Amplify 3-hour audio 2:07 3) Export 3-hour WAV 2:16 4) Export as 3-hour MP3 4:36 5) Import 3-hour MP3 2:07
2.4.2 1) Import 3-hour WAV 0:50 2) Amplify 3-hour audio 0.50 3) Export 3-hour WAV 1:30 4) Export as 3-hour MP3 4:35 5) Import 3-hour MP3 1:12
UP-11 - MIDI
On both W10 and macOS Catalina I can
- import MIDI files
- play MIDI tracks
UP-12 - recent files list
On Mac the Recent Files list is a bit iffy (Steve said the same about Linux)
UP-13 - Move and Rename
On W10 and mcOS Catalina I can:
- rename a .aup3 file
- move a .aup3 file to a different folder
and in both cases Audacity successfully opens it.
This is GREAT - as this is a tangle with old projects where losers could trip up and lose/damage their projects.
UP-14 - Recovery
Testing with a simulated crash.
>Error Opening Project
>Error: XML declaration not well-formed at line 1
UP-15 - cannot update a project
On Linux: Attempting to resave a project (to update the saved project) opens a file browser.
Continuing with the save from step to overwrite / update the project gives an assert.
Clicking "Continue" gives the error:
"Could not save project. Perhaps /home/steve/Desktop/test3-reset.aup3
is not writable or the disk is full.
so at present it is not possible to update a project.
Steve: Attempting to update a saved project leaves the project in a state that cannot be reopened. I can provide more details about this if required.
But when I click the
Error Saving Projecty
Could not save project perhaps ... is not writable or the disk is full
If I save to a different name the save goes ahead. But I can't reopen it.
UP-16 - Nyquist EGATs crash
The only three that work are
- Rhythm track
