Hi and thank you in advance for your help.
I have a set of lectures in mp3 format that include 2 or 3 actual lectures per file, and I’d like to split the files so each lecture is a separate mp3. The “audio bar” alone (sorry for the poor lingo) doesn’t provide enough information to determine when the lectures stop and start within a file, and I don’t know content of the lectures to be able to distinguish between lectures; which means I can’t narrow down the end point of two lectures by bouncing back and forth in the audio until I find the point of intersection.
I do have one idea, though, which could help me solve the problem, but I’m not sure if it’s feasible. Each lecture begins with an intro ‘tune’ like an episode of a tv show or a podcast. If I could select that section of audio in the beginning of the first file and find everywhere it repeats throughout the rest of the file I would be able to easily locate the start of each lecture and split them accordingly. Is this possible with Audacity? If not, do you know of any other tools that may help me?
Thank you very much for your time, and have a great day.
