Downloaded Audacity and have been going absolutely nuts just trying to do something pretty basic:
Cut a track at a certain, single point, dividing the single track into two, new segments. I understand this can be done, in some sense, by Selecting a section of the track in Audacity and using the Time Shift tool to move it around on that same track, but this not necessarily what I’m trying to do.
I want to cut small sections out of the original, single track and move them down into other tracks, as new ones. I need to do this several times and crossfade them all together.
SO, do I seriously have to select a section, isolate it, export it and then bring it back in???
Why is there not a razor tool or something?
Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.
It depends on what you’re trying to do.
Firstly, you can use ctrl-alt-I to move the selected portion to a new track without duplicate it (produces a gap in the original).
Then, there are all the copy, cut and paste shortcuts you can use just like in a word processor.
