Hi, I am brand new to this program. Can someone please point me in the right direction? All I want to do is add about two seconds of silence to the end of a wav file. The reason is that when I insert the file into a Powerpoint presentation, it is cutting off the last second or two during play-back, so maybe if I make the sound file a bit longer I can get around this.
I’m using Windows (the current version… sheesh… I don’t know how to find out what version it is… where do I look? (Sorry to sound like a dope). I installed Audacity from the .exe installer.
Thanks mucho, Bill, it worked! The wav file now plays perfectly in my PowerPoint presentation!
Next question… I am now trying to add a midi file, and have the opposite problem… I need to trim 2 seconds off the front. I tried selecting it, deleting the section, and exporting like I did with the wav file, but the midi now won’t play at all. Suggestions?
Thanks Steve. Yes, I agree with the starting a new thread suggestion. Update: I converted the midi and was able to edit it with Audacity. It’s a great program! Prior to last night, I had never edited any type of audio file, and now at least I can do some basic stuff.
