How to insert silence into audio gaps

Hi guys, I’m so close to automatic a process that normally takes me hours, but I’m missing a step.

If I record a single track of multiple audio clips, say the alphabet, how do I automatically insert silence into all the gaps to make the Detach at Silence feature work for me?

Normally I need to go in, select each audio clip, and upload it individually. But if I can somehow turn those gaps into silence, I can upload multiple clips at once!


Use this Noise Gate plug-in:
“Level reduction:” needs to be set to -100 to give total silence.

Installation instruction for Nyquist plug-ins on macOS:

The next Audacity release will include a version of this plug-in.

WOW. Thank you. Like MAGIC!!!
