Audacity: Dealing with Multiple Tracks

by David Birrow Birrow.David@MacPhail.org

Ok, my first New Years resolution will be that this will be the last Audacity post for awhile(unless you have a special request). I wanted to make sure all these videos were available for faculty. So here goes:

There are a couple quick and easy things you can do while using Audacity in a lesson to keep things straight:

  1. Turn off the 'Overdub' function. This will tell Audacity not to play all the tracks at once when you are recording a new track.

  3. Use Mute to mute tracks you don't want to hear.
  4. Use Solo to listen to single tracks
  5. Minimize tracks that you aren't dealing with to keep the screen clean and organized.

Here is a video quickly describing how to do these things:
