How do you set the ending of a song?

Hello everyone,

I am a total newb to Audacity. I am using it to mix some songs from a Tascam work station. I have the latest version 2.0.0 and windows.

This is probably obvious but I can’t seem to figure out how to end my song. It currently has about 2 minutes of silence at the end that I need to get rid of. I hope there is an easy way to set the ending of the entire song or multiple tracks. Is there?


You click on the stop button on the control panel. The recording and the blue waves will stop and wait for you to decide what to do next. If you have a long silence dragging from the end of your show, you can cut it off by drag-selecting it and press the keyboard delete key. Koz
