I’m using Audacity to record audio into tracks. I have found it difficult for the following reasons, how can I achieve a better workflow?
I would like to pre-create label regions with zero gaps or overlap. In order to do this I am manually creating labels, dragging the handles out to turn them into regions, then fiddling with each region to line up the end of each one with the start of the next. This last part is especially difficult as you cannot do this unless you are zoomed in quite a lot which is impossible when recording as the view autoscrolls
I’d like to line up the region boundaries with the start of each audio wave visually, but I can’t do that whilst recording, again the view scrolls to current location whilst recording
How can I manually set the duration of the region? I can see it’s possible using “edit label” to set its start and end time, but not the duration. (obvs when working with long sessions over an hour and to millisecond precision this gets difficult calculating the number in your head)
