Create new track in real time recording

I use Audacity to record for the local Talking Newspaper. Our final output has each article split onto a separate track, which then uses Export Multiple to create individual MP3s. Is there a way that I can split during a live recording to continue on a new track, without stopping the recording each time? I’d like to be able to press a key combo so the recording does not stop but it continues on a new track.

No, sorry.

But you can drop a label at the current recording position with the shortcut Ctrl+M and then use multiple export after the recording has finished.

See: Exporting multiple audio files - Audacity Manual


Perfect solution, thanks so much
