just to do the basic mixing of tracks,
playing a bass track, then a guitar track, then an organ,
then vocals, then mixing the tracks together
I ve relooked at my audacity, cant see any way of doing it on there
Thanks , I just downloaded the 1.3 beta,
The download didn t seem to have anything to "run " and install
so Ive just put the folder onto my desktop.
The window that comes up is entitled… "Clean Speech "
its audacity 1.3.12 unicode.
In the " view " dropdown I can see " mixer board "
so it looks like Im on the right track !
In the download page for windows: http://audacityteam.org/download/beta_windows you have different files to download, there’s an .exe installer for Windows 2000/XP/Vista. There’s also a .zip version. You probably downloaded the .zip version. No problem with that. Just unpack like you probably did.
You probably don’t want clean speech mode, so you should turn it off. Go to Preferences → Interface → uncheck ‘CleanSpeech Mode’. Restart Audacity.
STRANGE, I start up this new beta audacity, hit record and immediately get
a clicking sound in speakers and a big blue audio signal in the audio track.
I dont think Im going to get much further… to record and mix I need to be able to
listen to a track playing and then play into it to make a new track,
and then be able to mix the tracks together.
I think I need specific, dedicated mixing software.
