Joining WAV files [SOLVED]

I have two WAV files, A and B, and I want to join them by appending B after A.
How do I go about it?

Using Audacity 3.0.2 and Windows 10 64bit.

  1. Launch Audacity
  2. “File menu > Import > Audio” and select “file A”
  3. “File menu > Import > Audio” and select “file B”
  4. “Ctrl + A” (Select All)
  5. “Tracks menu > Align Tracks > Align End to End”
  6. “File menu > Export > Export as WAV” (or one of the other formats if you prefer)

Thanks steve, very clear instruction.

In older Audacity versions, I used to do it by copying file B and pasting it at the end of file A. That was intuitive, but I couldn’t get it to work this time.

Also, there was a tool for smoothing the transition. I couldn’t find that either.

That should still work, though it is not necessary for both A and B to be on the same track, they just need to be one after the other.

Having said that …

That is still available. In fact there are several ways to do it. Probably the easiest is if both A and B are on the same track (despite what I wrote above).

After importing A and B:

  1. Double click on track “B” to select it.
  2. “Ctrl + X” (Cut)
  3. Click on track “A”
  4. Press “K” (or click the “>>” button) to go to the end.
  5. “Ctrl + V” (Paste)

(The Cut / Paste commands are also available in the “Edit” menu, but the keyboard shortcuts are quicker)

Then, to smooth (“crossfade”) the transition from A to B, use the “Crossfade Clips” effect (See: Crossfade Clips - Audacity Manual)

Yes, got that to work too, thanks.

Query fully resolved.
