Save Tracks and Edit on Audacity: There are songs and recordings that we always wish to modify according to our taste. Sometimes, merging two tracks, and blending a movie track with our music.
So, how to do it effectively? We often wonder what are the best tools on the internet that can quickly help. Audacity enables you to do such things. Audacity is a more easy and simple software to do all such activities. Let us see how we can record audio, save them, and edit them in Audacity for living a better musical life.
Recording and Saving Music in Audacity
The recording is way more straightforward on Audacity that any other software. To record audio, all you have to do is to go to a new project section on Audacity and create a new project. Click here for learn more.
Once you create a new project, Audacity will request you to save it with a particular file name, which is, of course, mostly the name of your output track. Next, adjust the dB levels of peak sound and input signal level via different options on Audacity. Once done, press the red button and record. There you go! Record it and saving is done.
- Click File> Save Project
- Save Project > Save Project as
- Adjust peak sound and input signal dB levels
- Click on the red ‘record button.’
- Play with Pause and stop button from adding multiple music tracks
Editing tracks in Audacity
Editing the tracks in Audacity is again no big deal. However, it needs a few cautions. Firstly, Audacity can import and allow you to select only open source files. Copy-protected files cannot be edited on Audacity.
Audacity will support MP3, AIFF, and WAV formats. However, with the help of the FFmpeg library, a range of support format increases on Audacity.
- As a First Step, you will need to find existing Files on your system via Audacity. It is simple, browse, and select. However, there are other feasible options too to import the File. You can drag and drop a file from desktop to Audacity Icon.
- Alternatively, you can drag and drop the data from a specific location inside the Audacity window. Both would work without a pinch of hassle.
- Next, you observe if the waveform of left and right is correct. If not, you will need to correct them (if you wish to).
- Next, start listening to the audio on the waveform. Tools will be displayed on the sides.
If you want to play only a specific part of the track, use the “I” cursor and drag it to your choice on the waveform, just like you select a text in MS word. Once you’re satisfied with the selection, you can go to edit the option to trim the selection. In the end, you can use the fade-out effect to avoid last second bad endings.
We love to move our feet on different songs during functions and performances; everyone loves it. So, don’t wait up anymore! Get Audacity now and start grooving.
