I have about a dozen mp3 audio files of various lengths in a folder. Total duration is 1h15m.
I want to put all of these sequentially into a single long mp3 file.
I’ve tried the following:
- Open audacity
- File>Import>Audio…(directs to folder containing target files)
- Selected all files (by highlighting all)
- Click Open
Audacity will import all the files in sequence up to about 7 minutes total duration on the timeline.
Then, after a hiccup (importing continues but total duration of timeline actually drops down to under 5 minutes) total duration on timeline increases to about 10 minutes total duration.
Then importing continues but timeline shrinks back to under 5 minutes, then increases to 16m and then up and down. At the end, my 1h 15m of music occupies under 14 minutes.
If I play back, it’s evident that various mp3 files have been imported on top of each other instead of sequentially, so I have a jumble of sound. (Surrealistic, but not what I’m looking for.)
What is the fix for this??
Thanks in advance for any help.
