Paste audio at end of soundtrack

Permanent link to this post Posted by Lyngas » Sun Jul 01, 2012 12:07 pm

Hi there and thanks for the useful tool! :)

In Audacity 1.26 when i wand to duplicate piece of sound i just paste anywhere in channel, and the new track joined automatic to end of previous track.. now if i paste sound, that stay in place i paste it! :(

Is that very difficult to me because i have to do that every time (copy + paste) about 40, 50 times and adjust manual the position start/end..

Look at screenshot what i mean.

Is there any way to do that in new 2.+ version, or i have to go back to 1.26 ..?


Thanks, Demetris. :)

The 2.0.behaviour is better for people who want to paste exactly where they put the cursor after the end of the audio. This then gives them a separate clip with a space between the previous end of the audio and the paste.

For what you want to do you can place the cursor anywhere after the end of the track, press K on your keyboard, then paste. K places the cursor at the current end of the track.

But why not paste that audio once then use Effect > Repeat (http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/ef ... tml#repeat)?

And BTW note that your audio is clipping, you have an oversaturated (over-loud) signhal that is banging against the top and bottom of the waveform window at 1/-1 - you really need to choke it back a bit or it will sound horrible.
