Connecting Files

I upgraded my computer but forgot to keep the installation program for an old version of Audacity. One of the main things I use the program for these days is to connect multiple files into a single one, and the reason I used the old program was that when I moved one track onto another track the program automatically joined them. The newer versions allow a silence between tracks, which may be desirable for everyone else but makes considerably more work for me.

Does anyone know which old version allowed one to simply paste one track onto another to have them connected, or is there an option somewhere that I do not know about (hopefully) that allows this?

Thanks -


Using Audacity 2.0.5:

  1. Import the tracks (they will all be one above the other).
  2. “Ctrl+A” (select All)
  3. “Tracks menu > Align Tracks > Align End to End”
  4. “File menu > Export”
    Job done.

Audacity 2.0.5 can be downloaded here:

That’s what I needed, thanks a bunch.

It may sometimes be convenient to cut and paste manually. If so, all you need to do is click in the track you want to paste in, then press K on your keyboard to move the cursor to the exact end of the track. The paste will then attach to the end of the target track.
