How can I mix files?


Last year I used Audacity to mix spooky music and sounds for Halloween. This year, for some reason, if I try to insert silence to move a track to a specific point, it creates silence in the other track as well. How can I resolve this so I can mix my tracks for my party tomorrow night?

I’m using Windows 8 on a HP laptop.

Ensure that “Sync-Lock” is off (not selected)

Ensure that you don’t have all of the tracks selected. If all tracks are selected (highlighted) they will all move. If al tracks are selected, left click on a track with the “selection tool” (the “normal” cursor) to unselect them.

Note that you can move audio clips using the Time Shift tool.
