It’s been so long that I have forgotten how to do something, which is to add 30 seconds of silence to the end of an audio file.
The end result is, everything I try, the 30 (or any number) seconds replace the audio file.
I open an mp3 file. It plays just fine.
I edit>move cursor>to end of track.
I generate>silence>enter 30 seconds.
The 2.6 second mp3 clip is replaced by 30 seconds of silence.
I tried selecting all after moving the cursor to end of track, but that made no difference.
What have I forgotten to do?
Don’t select all. Just move the cursor to the end, then generate silence.
If you select audio, then generate silence, the selected audio is replaced by silence.
I did it without selecting all first.
I’m on Windows , but I think the procedure will be identical on Audacity on a Mac …
Yes, that is what I did. So it’s not my mind. I guess I’ll dl the newest version and should fix my problem.
