I am newby and possibly never intend to use deeply audacity.
I am not used to read audacity type tutorials.
I am learning dancing salsa. I need to grab a portion of my recordings during classes to identificate the title of the song.
Then put that portion in the cloud to know about it.
What I need is very simple but i don’t know how to do.
Perhaps you can help me with a dummy mini tutorial for this need.
You may need to zoom-in so that you can find and select the part of the song you want to copy (View → Zoom In).
You can select the part of the song you want to copy by left-clicking and dragging the mouse.
Click Edit → Copy. That will copy the selected part into Audacity’s clipboard.
Click File → New to open a new Audaciy window.
In the new window, click File → Paste. That will paste your selection into the new window/project.
Click File → Export to save your selection to a WAV or MP3 file. (You have to install the optional LAME encoder if you want MP3.)
Understood DVDdoug . wonderful. Any trouble I will comment, but is perfectly explained.
