Ok - the job is this. I have about 12 stereo music clips and 2 mono ads (all from the 1940s). I still need to record some “station breaks” etc (which, given my equipment, will (I suspect) default to mono) that need to be blended in.
I can figure out the transitions between songs, and get the vox recordings in the right spots. However, the “Project” is likely to end up as 1 primary stereo track with all the songs and several mono tracks.
So, since I don’t seem to be able to move the mono bits into the middle of the stereo track (click and drag didn’t work), I’m hoping that if I save the “Project” I’ll be able to specify that the resulting mix is stereo track that I can play through an in-house sound system.
I have time to play with it all - but 1) I have to get the director to approve it in advance, and b) the system where it will ultimately play is not local (and the people there are not happy with e-mailed files… )
So the help I need is this - how to save 1 stereo track and a couple of mono tracks as one stereo output track.
This is my first real attempt at something a little complex with Audacity. I’m sure all the ‘old hands’ are reading this, thinking “so what’s the big deal!” but a little hand-holding would be really appreciated!
