Thanks for Audacity.
System: Macintosh G4, 1 gHz dual processor, OS X 10.3.6, Audacity v. 1.2.3.
My problem: When I hit the play button, I often don't hear any audio
until 2-3 seconds in. The meters show signal, but the sound doesn't
kick in till a couple of seconds in. This doesn't always happen, but
it does more often than not. Curiously, this seems to happen less
when I change the Project Rate to something other than the file's
rate (the file is a 16 bit 44.1 AIFF file).
