Please tell me how to delete both selected previous recordings and to delete the entire recordings stored from previous sessions. Also tell me how to save recordings before I close. I tried EXPORT but cannot save current recordings into the built in MUSIC folder regardless of what choice I make. I also installed LAME to convert to mp3 or wav to no avail. It would be nice to save recordings so the app would be empty on opening. I use the app to record from the LINE IN port. I have not tried to record from cd. I use other apps for that even though they both lack the ability to record from LINE IN despite that it is active. I need any and all help in simple steps to accomplish the basic functions common to open reel and cassettes.
We don’t make any “2.1” version so a good start may be to get the current Audacity 2.1.3 from http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows.
Then please try reading the tutorials/FAQs
If you saved a project, delete the AUP file and _data folder.
If you didn’t save a project, File > Close and don’t save changes. This clears out the Audacity temporary space.
Export is correct. Save into your own Music folder, not someone else’s. Only use a to z or A to Z letters, numbers, underscore and hyphen-minus in the file name. Export not as MP3 but as as WAV, 44100 Hz, 16-bit stereo for burning to audio CD: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/burning_music_files_to_a_cd.html. MP3 should only be used for a final, small disk space copy for your computer or music player.
