Please! You guys! Take Kalles advice with Kristal and ASIO4all. Audacity is a great program for editing stereo files but it is extremely lacking when it comes to multitracking. The learning curve with Kristal is a little steep but it's very short. There are so many benefits to using Kristal. Minimal latency with a good ASIO driver and REAL TIME effects. Which mean you can listen to your track with effects in real time instead of applying the effect after the fact. A HUGE time saver. It's free! How can you lose?

I had that same problem, so I tried using the program Kristal for recording instead, with the ASIO4ALL driver, and it worked for me. :)

I guess I'm just lucky, I never had that problem. I have read that it may be due to your processor speed. I used it on a 1.1 gig processor with 258 memory and it was fine though.

I had the problem with a dual core processor and a meg of RAM. I'm thinking it has to do with the soundcard (onboard).

The major problem with Audacity is that it doesnt support ASIO (low latency) sound drivers.
With some good soundcards it may work without latency, but with many low-cost soundcards you will get latency and/or the track to track "speed" differences that jonast has experienced.
