Not sure what I did last time I opened this, but, I have a project that I used two vocal tracks to get a double track sound on. One of the tracks is now a few seconds behind the other one. I am trying to figure out how to get them back in sync, but not having a lot of luck. I tried a few things from the Track menu, but nothing seemed to work. Any help appreciated.
That’s because it’s not in the Track menu. Select the top track by clicking just above the MUTE button. Time Shift Tool (two sideways black arrows). Click on the top track blue wave and push to the right. Audacity will automatically merge them into one sound file when you File > Export.
Thank you, it is the bottom track that actually needs to be moved to the left to be in sync with the top one. Does th same process apply, but choose the bottom track?
Yes, but that gives you a slightly magic condition of having sound “before zero.” Right? The extra stuff in the bottom track is going to “fall off” the left side of the timeline. Except it doesn’t fall off, it hangs out there and can cause calculation difficulties.
Being professionally paranoid, I would move the top track to the right so it musically matches and then delete everything before the first note that you don’t want.
