So I’ve had Audacity for a while now but I never really did anything like this. There was a song I bought on iTunes but it’s a composition from a film and I’m trying to remove the second half and fade out the first but it doesn’t flow properly. If anyone has any ideas the song is “Journey To The How” by Harry Gregson Williams. I wanted it to finish off at around 1:45 to 1:50 but I can’t seem to figure out how to get the right effect. I have absolutely no skill at editing audio, I’m practically an amateur, any advice would help.
You can try the Envelope Tool (two white arrows and bent blue line). Selecting that will give you steering lines above and below the blue waves and you can click on those to change the volume as the show moves.
Try the “Studio Fade Out” effect: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/fades.html#studio_fadeout
