Summary0008665: when stop recording, ardour sometimes puts undesired empty region ontop of recorded region
DescriptionI’m sporadically encountering issue where the last region I recorded shows the waveform fine as it is recording, but then when I press stop, an empty region is placed on top of the recorded region. I don’t hear my recorded region when I playback and it appears as though nothing recording because a blank region is placed ontop of my recorded audio. However the audio did record, and can be found by clicking on the empty region and pressing delete.

See https://discourse.ardour.org/t/ardour-git-sometimes-returns-empty-region-after-stop-recording/105791
Steps To ReproduceNot easily reproducible, and I haven't determined the exact conditions which this happens on my computer, but it seems the more audio regions I record, the more likely I am to encounter this issue.
TagsNo tags attached.

Just to clarify: there is a correct region with expected audio underneath, and simply deleting the empty region fixes things?

yes, there is a correct region underneath the blank region, and simply deleting the empty region fixes things.

Hi, I found something similar to this but couldn't reproduce it.

I started up a new project and started recording with Transport -> Follow Playhead and Stationary Playhead activated. These were the only different things I set, so I thought that could be the cause of this issue, but I couldn't reproduce it again by activating those preferences. I mention this here because I got this problem on the first recording. I "fixed" it by editing the region end (I tried to make it larger; of course that would be imposible, but when I released mouse, the waveform was there).

Recently I noticed that region name finishes in .2, indicating it is a "second edit region", but I think I hadn't done any edits when I did the screenshot. What I mean is that maybe the region with the waveform was under the .2 region.

Another difference from what ericfontaine reported is that I actually could hear the recorded audio, though no waveform was shown.

Lastly, I tried to drag and drop region Gtr-1.2 from the Region List but it didn't work. It creates another region, but shows nothing in the track, not even an empty region.

I attach two images. The second one has the track unarmed to show metrics. I also upload the session file as it may help (it has another track and a few edits and automation added).

Version used: 6.7.0 from ardour.org

I just experienced this issue again. On a 3-day fresh install of KDE neon user edition (which is based on Ubuntu 20.04-lts and KDE plasma 23.0) using the linux install binary from the Ardour website. My session has 3 tracks: "alto-flute", "06 Conv...Melody", "conveyer...larinet.2". I was recording my first take on alto-flute for the project duration (1 min 20 sec). After recording completed, I see there is a region "Take1_alto-flute-1.2" with no audio which is covering up what I actually recorded (region name "Take1_alto-flute-1.1").
