http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu2vh3QbntE I’m trying to loop the first 27 seconds.Some input would be greatly appreciated.How would you guys go about looping this?
At around 26 seconds, the thematic phrase ends and another starts. I’d put the loop point there. If you don’t, you’ll need to wait for the next whole phrase some distance down the song – nowhere near 27 seconds.
That will set you up to End > Paste > End > Paste and produce a long looping track. If you’re not going to do this inside Audacity, then we need to find out what you’re looping it in.
Based on downloading the file in FLV format and importing into Audacity, loop from 0.367 seconds to 25.964 seconds.
If you download or record in a different way the exact times may be slightly different.
The start and end of the loop should ideally be at zero crossing points: http://manual.audacityteam.org/manual/help/manual/man/edit_menu.html#zero
