Copy set of stereo tracks to 2 new tracks [SOLVED]

Hi there. I have a Windows 8.1 pc. I have the latest Audacity software. I am following a YouTube video to create some fun robotic voices of my own. After recording my voice in stereo one of the steps in the beginning is to copy your original set of stereo tracks, add another set of empty stereo tracks and paste the same recording in the new set of stereo tracks. Total 4 tracks now, 2 sets of stereo. It works but the second set comes out a bit longer in duration than the original set of tracks. In the demonstration on Youtube this does not happen. And of course when you play the tracks they are out of sync.

(1) Why the elongation of the copied tracks?
(2) How to prevent it or rectify it?

Thanks so much. Jack ":-Dx

I’m not sure what you are doing, but the easy way to copy a track (mono or stereo) to a new track, is to use the “duplicate” command (shortcut Ctrl+D)

  1. Double click on the track to select it.
  2. Press Ctrl+D

Sir, it worked effortlessly! I’ll look to see if this forum has ANSWERED, or KUDOS, or whatever for you great help! JackdsShack ":-Dx
