    Audio Editing Question

    I was hoping anyone computer savvy could help me with this:

    How do you separate a long audio file into separate tracks?

    If you've got the right software*, you could isolate the section(s) you want and copy<paste it into a new document/project/whatever it's called.

    *From my limited experience, I recommend Audicity; it's downloadable and free. The learning curve is a little hard at first, but once you understand how it works, it becomes pretty easy. If you get stuck on something, consult the Help menue or PM me.

    Thanks. I'll try that, and hopefully it'll work out. I wish I was more computer savvy.

    Audicity works pretty good. I have a friend of mine who has used it to good effect in his videos.

    Audacity Tutorial: Splitting recordings into separate tracks

    I'm going to chime with the others and recommend Audacity. The consensus seems to be that is a fairly easy to get going with, and that is more powerful than a lot of beginner audio editors that you would have to pay for. I've only dabbled with it a bit, but one of the members of my computer group demonstrated how she uses it to take an audio program she records, edit out the commercials and archive the "cleaned" program as an MP3 file with the separately downloaded (but integrated) Lame encoder.

    Of particular interest to you (I hope) is that the Audacity Wiki site has a tutorial on "Splitting recordings into separate tracks" here: http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.p...eparate_tracks

    I hope you find it useful.
