"Jumpy" audio

Hello.... and thanks in advance for any help offered

I've noticed in the last couple days that at certain points my audio it gets "jumpy".  I'm not sure how to describe it, but when the playback should say something like "And at this point..." it  actually comes out "And a-a-at this point...".  It seems to happen near recent audio edits.  So I'll edit to the audio... And when I go back to hear how it sounds, the jumpiness appears within a second or two of the edit.  I've zoomed into the timeline as much as possible and examined the audio by playing it multiple times but sometimes it will play fine over it and other times it won't.  I've tried saving the video and even going as far as to close the Camtaisa and reboot the laptop... And it still there.

The last time this happened I simply deleted the section of the audio this was happening in and re-recorded it.  I'd prefer to figure out what's causing it and fix it though... Can anyone offer any suggestions on what's causing it and how to fix it?  Thanks!

I have experienced a similar issue and found it to be intermittent in that I I play the same area over again it sounds fine.  When I publish the video and play it back on another device it is also fine.

The reason this happens is that the file might be too big to play all at once. I get this issue too, as I got a new $1,500 laptop. A quick fix is to convert the audio to a smaller file size. Don't worry, once you are completely done editing, you can "update media" to the High Quality version.

I experienced this as well; very frustrating! THe fix: record your audio soundtrack (or convert it) to a 'constant' bit rate as opposed to a 'variable' bit rate. Not sure why but it worked for me. I now record all my audio in this format - this only occurs in ver9, ver8 does not exhibit this behavior for some reason.
