Sound Stutters and Repeats V. 0.5.4

I have version 0.5.4 on Windows 7 64 bit.

I can import sound, but it catches /repeats / stutters in the same exact spots. Anyone else have this issue?

I thought maybe the sound file was too big, so I cut it very small, and also tried wav and mp3, still stutters in same spot.

Not sure what changes have been put in since 2013, but I’m loathe to update since my version is working except for this one issue.
