I apologize in advance for this probably being too simple to ask. I did try to figure it out from the FAQ and the manual, but I can’t get it to work, and I need to finish this by tomorrow… I mean later today. I would really appreciate some help.
I’m on Windows 8.1 with Audacity 2.0.5.
I’m trying to mix 2 files, one with music, one with spoken voice. I wanted the spoken voice to start before the music. First I tried importing both files and using the Time Shift tool to move the music forward a few secs. I couldn’t get it to work. I always got the sign with the slash through it when I tried to move it. So I tried making a separate project for the music file and Time Shifting it forward. That worked, except, as soon as I exported it out so I could bring it into the main project, the exported file didn’t have the added seconds in it. I tried it twice, but it did the same thing each time. How can I add a few seconds of silence at the beginning of the music so that it stays instead of getting deleted?
I apologize again that this is probably very simple. I’m just out of time to figure it out on my own and I can’t find this in the FAQ or manual.
Thanks for whatever help you can offer.
