You could "batch process" them (see: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/ch ... ation.html)
and apply the "Trim extend" effect in the chain (see: http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqui ... .2F_Extend)

"So do you want to hear First Phrase, 2 seconds silence, Second Phrase, 2 seconds silence, Third Phrase... ? "


YES Thank you

In between I found a solution

1. Import all for example 1000 VOICE files
2. Mark all tonsures ( OSX CMD+A?).
3. TRANSPORT "Skip to Start "
3. GENERATE Silence for example 2 seconds.
4. TRACKS Allign tracks End to End
5. Insert Background music
5.1 Import MP3 Background music files in Audacity per Drag n Drop
5.2 Reduce Silince gain to -28 DB (Voice Records should be louder)
5.3 Mark background Music, then copy n paste background sound till end of voice record time (for long files this can be 10 times)
6 Tracks -> Mix und Render
7. Export Audio als MP3


What is the advantage of installing some plugins?
Thank you in advance

From your description I thought you wanted to insert silence at the start of all the original files, automatically. The method I wrote would do that, rather than having to paste repeatedly. It would not add fairly loud room noise, though by default the export would add extremely quiet dither noise.

As you now say you wanted only one file as the result, you would then with my suggestion have to import all the new files, align them, then export as one file.

Topic merged with original question.
Please avoid repeating the same question in multiple places. Doing so wastes time and causes confusion. Thanks.

Yes you are right. That was my initial question therefore I asked for a new topic.

I am also looking for a second solution how to add silence to the voice files.
Thank you for helping :-)



My main problem is describes in another ahead and I am looking for more solutions.
I have plenty of files and I want to find the best solution :)
After I have imported the silence in the sound files I will mix them with background music. That is my second task.

Sorry for the confusion...
