I’m a newbie… I’m editing some voice-over material for my wife (mono-one track). She records on one computer and I will edit on another. Should I copy the entire project to my computer and then edit. Or is it just as good to export her file as a WAV and then edit that on my computer. Any quality differences, etc? thanks
The easiest way for best possible quality is to Export the audio as “WAV 32-bit float” (in the “other uncompressed files” options: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/file_export_dialog.html). This is the same ultra-high quality format that Audacity uses internally. Copy the WAV file to the other computer and Import it into a new project for editing.
