Hi, I’m attempting to remix a song but I don’t know how to get started. What tool would I use to copy specific parts of a track and basically paste it on to another track? And are there any other features that would be useful for this kind of project?
Starting with the show in the Audacity window, Tracks > Add New Stereo Track. That should give you a blank track under the show. From there, you can copy and paste into the new blank track. Use the Time Shift Tool (two sideways black arrows) to push the clip around to where you need it. Then you can use the envelope tool (two white arrows and bent blue line) to fade any track note by note if you need. The blue line is a rubber band.
This is a made-up crossfade.
Thank you for the help, I appreciate it.
