With Audacity 1.3 I was able to easily cut out any noise spike by highlighting a very narrow window encompasing the spike then clicking on “cut”. With Audacity the best I can do is highlight a whole second while being unable to locate the window except between the fixed second markings. It’s impossible to cut out a noise spike without also losing one entire second of recorded material! How can I restore the flexibility of the Version 1.3 capability?
There are software packages that can recognize and treat clicks and pops. Your timeline will behave like that if you have Snap To selected at the bottom of the window.
