Stops Recording

Audition CC 2017 randomly quits recording an audio file.  Usually after about 20 minutes.

I have Windows 10, Screen and Sleep are both turned off in forever mode.

Any ideas as to what is causing this?  No other application, including browser is running.

This started happening towards the middle of May.

Thanks

I kept seeing the windows is interupping audition audio settings, found on YouTube a tutorial on pro tools how to uninstall all of window audio drivers in the sound menu. Select speaker and everything enabled and right click and disable, even in recording tap, once you do that your AISO4all will take over everything and windows audio will now have no control

I'm afraid that's absolutely not true. ASIO4ALL provides a link between ASIO-based software engines - like Audition's -

When you say 'quits recording', what actually happens? Do you get a crash?

Hi Steve!

No it does not crash.  It does just that: it stops.  I am a v-o and the computer is outside of my vision, so I double check after voicing--and I noticed it is no longer recording.  So to be safe I hit File, New, Audio File to record a second time.

Program seems to run everything else just fine, it just randomly will stop recording.

I hope this is clear!

It doesn't normally do that at all - indeed quite extensive steps are taken to make sure it doesn't, by giving the recording process very high machine priority; it would take something pretty catastrophic to cause it to stop.

Still don't know enough about what you're doing though. Is this a multi-track recording or a waveform view one? Waveform view recordings go to a temporary disk before being written to their final destination, and if the temp file location fills up, then yes, recording has to stop because there's nowhere to put it.

I'm assuming that you haven't got it in timed recording mode, of course - that's generally pretty obvious to spot.

Hi Steve,

Appreciate you taking time to help out!

I am just recording a waveform, NO multi-track on this one.  Is there a possible way to check if temp file location if full?  Is so, where is it, and can I delete it?

Thanks!

Edit>Preferences>Media and Disk Cache, and look at the first entry, which is 'Audition Audio Disk Cache', and that's where its location is specified. Relatively easy to check from there, but if you are going to make any sort of a reasonable length recording, there needs to be quite a bit of space available to that location. A lot of people (including me) have it located on a separate drive.

I have exactly the same problem.  It started on Friday.  I was recording a longish piece of audio and doing nothing else with the computer at the time.  After about 15 minutes Audition just stopped recording.  Version is CC2017 and it's the first time in five years of using Audition that it's ever happened.  Since Friday this has happened on four more occasions - once after just a couple of minutes.  It's just happened again - after nine minutes.  I'm recording right now and so far it's been recording okay for nearly 22 minutes.

Windows 10.   The strange thing is that up until Friday I'd been recording long pieces of audio (90 mins at least) with no problem.

Are you using manufacturer's supplied ASIO audio drivers for your audio interface? If not make sure that Windows hasn't turned Windows Sounds back on. It should always be set to 'None'. Otherwise any attempt Windows makes to play a sound to say that something like email arriving has happened may try to steal the audio driver from Audition and at the same time change sample rate/bit depth settings.

I noticed in my preferences, they were set to MME.  Could set it to ASIO (Yamaha Steinberg is my digital interface going to computer) make the difference?

Thanks all for the suggestions and help!  I have like 200 GB, so it should be more than enough space.  I have recorded w/ 1 hard drive for several years and not had a problem--so I don't think that it is running out of space.  Perhaps I am wrong.

Yes, if you can use the ASIO drivers they should be much more reliable since the audio is routed directly from the hardware into Audition without the Windows OS playing any part as they would be with the MME drivers. it is quite likely that Windows would default to the MME drivers on a Win 10 update.

It happened again this morning--stops after about 5 minutes of recording.  I have selected ASIO drivers--so I don't think that is the problem. i/O buffer size is 512 and sample rate is 4800.

It looks as if it is still recording ( I have to hit stop) but the small editor view is no longer moving--but sound levels react as if it is still recording.

I would not think it has anything to do w/ memory space because I have 140 or so gigs of space available on the computer I am using.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much.

I'm afraid that this doesn't make sense. If it stopped recording, it stopped recording and didn't continue. Audition isn't coded to behave like Shrodinger's cat!

If Audition stopped recording on its own, and wasn't in timed recording mode (you see a little clock by the record button, and get an extra timing screen when you start to record), then technically, it's crashed. If this is the case, then you need to follow the instructions here: Audition Crashed. Now what? paying particular attention to the second post, which tells you where to send the logs, and why.

If you've only got 36 minutes worth of recording in one file, then that's what you've got. Whatever you think you did, you clearly weren't recording for an hour. If you were, then you'd have an hour's worth of recording - which you haven't. No it wouldn't suddenly write it to another file - it simply doesn't work like that.

So let's start at the beginning. Were you recording in Waveform view, or Multitrack?

Which 36 mins out of the hour do you hear when you play back the audio file? Is it the first 36 mins or the last? What size is the file and what format was it saved in? You still haven't told us whether you were trying to record in the Waveform view or in Multitrack? It makes a huge difference because

What you don't seem to understand is that if you have nothing to show for it, then even though it looks like it's recording - it isn't! It's fooling you into thinking it's recording whilst it's doing nothing of the sort.

So yes it stopped recording - and that's important. You can only proceed any further if you admit that it stopped, and ask yourself why. And since you've said that you're doing this in Waveform view, I have to ask you how big a temp space you have allocated. Because one thing that will appear to stop a recording in mid-track is the temp space being full. Audition records into the temp space, and it the result doesn't get written to a file until you've stopped recording and saved it.

Waveform! It just cuts off at like 36:02 and makes some weird static noise, so only the first 36 mins of the recording plays.
