Re: Weird thing on Spectral edit Ver 2.3.1

Many moons ago, you wrote a Nyquist ultra narrow BPF. I want to modified it to work in spectral mode. For an ultra-narrow band pass filter, it would be better to base it on the "Spectral Delete" effect. That has extremely steep, linear phase filters that will give a much sharper cut-off. However, l...

Re: Forced drive type

Here's the issue re. FAT formatted drives: For Audacity 3.x, a new single file project format was developed. Why? Because it is heartbreaking to see inexperienced or less technical Audacity users permanently losing their work because they haven't understood the concept of a multi-file project format...

Re: Stuck on tools

The "F1" key should switch you back to the normal "Selection Tool" (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tools_toolbar.html)

Re: Turn Off Autoplay

You have made my day so much easier. THANK YOU. Strangely, the reply from truckenfarmr is not the correct answer. We will probably never know what mmouse, but considering that they were using Audacity 2.1.2, Gale Andrews' (RIP) guess about pressing "Ctrl" is probably correct. For later versions of ...

Re: Edit > Undo: track specific

when creating a separate reverb track (wet only) for my drumming track, i wish Undo remembered each track's last action, so that i could come back to the reverb track and undo the reverb setting (e.g. Medium room) and apply a different reverb (e.g. small bright room), so that at the end of my mix p...

Re: Identify a shotgun microphone (vintage I think)

I don't recognise the brand. It looks like they have mini-jack connectors, so if those are the original cables for the mics, then they are probably intended for use with consumer grade portable equipment (such as a video camera). The flared end of the mic is probably intended to hold wind-shield (mi...

Re: Help with Filter Graphic Curve

Help with Filter Graphic Curve Audacity has two EQ ("Equalization") effects. Filter Curve EQ is the more complicated. It's very powerful, but over the top for a lot of tasks. Graphic EQ is much simpler to use. It works like a normal hi-fi Graphic Eq. Low frequencies are on the left, high frequencie...

Re: Remove a specific sound

I want to remove disturbing whistles, "aaa" s and specific words like "alright" , "actually" etc from the lecture recording. Is it possible? There's no automatic way to do that. You can of course work through the recording, select an "alright", delete it, then move on to the next one. It'll take a ...
