Hello Everybody, This is my first post so please bear with me. I have a fairly long mp3 file that I made from a WAV file in Audacity and would like to cut this into separate tracks and label them. It’s seems I’m not cutting correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
There’s more than one way to do it. There is a [u]tutorial here[/u].

Since MP3 is lossy compression, it’s best to do all of your editing in WAV first, and compress to MP3 once as the last step.
When you open a compressed file in Audacity (or any “normal” audio editor) it has to be decompressed first. Then if you re-save (re-export) to a lossy compression format, you are going through an extra lossy-compression step. You may not notice any quality loss, but it’s something you should avoid whenever possible.
