Crackling audio in edit mode

I’m editing an audio file that was recorded for me in another program. I’m having a problem where the voice is crackling while I’m trying to edit. It doesn’t appear to be a speaker issue as I tried playing something else and the audio plays fine. Is there anything I can do to fix that?

Hi Paul,

Can you please share the audio file so we can analyze further?


It’s a 30 minute audio file, so I don’t know how I’d share that. The export sounds fine, but it’s just during the editing that the audio crackles.
