How do I combine tracks and make them play all at once?

Hi everyone,

So I am completely new to Audacity, and have never used it before. I am going to be running a 5k in a few months and have decided to make my own “Couch 2 5k” playlist. I followed an online tutorial on how to make it, and got to the very end. But the person who wrote the tutorial never explained how to get all of the tracks to play at once and combine them into one mp3 and export it into i-tunes. Here is the link to the tutorial.


Can someone please explain to me how to go about doing this? Thanks so much!

I have the latest version of Audacity 2.0.0 and I have MAC OS X version 10.6.8

To create a normal audio file from an Audacity project you need to “Export” (in the “File” menu).
To export in MP3 format you will need to have LAME installed (see here: )

See here for how to set MP3 export options (once you have LAME installed)
