Isolate selection of a recording

It would help to make your posts more easily readable if you used paragraphs.

One way to do the job…

  1. Open the project.
  2. Press “Play”.
  3. Get ready on the Ctrl and M keys.
  4. When it gets to “h”, press “Ctrl+M” then “Enter”. This creates a label.
  5. When it gets to “q”, press “Ctrl+M” then “Enter”. This creates another label.
  6. Press spacebar or the click the Stop button to stop.

    There are several ways to do the next part. Here are two ways:

7a) Click and drag on the waveform to select from the first label to the second label.


8a) “File menu > Export Selected Audio”. Choose a new, unique name for the file, This file will contain the selected audio only.

Alternatively:
7b) Click and drag on the waveform to select from the first label to the second label.
8b) “Edit menu > Remove Special > Trim Audio” (or “Ctrl*T”). This deletes the parts that are not selected, leaving just the part that was selected.
9b) You may now export, or save as a new project.
