I often want to know which vinyl pressing of the SAME song sounds best. Can I import the two sound files into Audacity, level match them and then alternate playing them every five seconds? I want to create a single file that has these properties, i.e level matched and alternates between the two sounds files every five seconds.
Thing I figured it out. I imported both tracks then went to “Analyze → Normalize”. Next I changed the snap-to interval to seconds. This made it easy to select 5 seconds of alternate tracks to silence!
Can toggle at will whilst playing …
or alternate at fixed intervals … https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/automated-silence-interval/32511/9
