splitting continuous audio into separate tracks

can i split a recording into separate tracks if my audacity project is one long audio without any actual pauses? i guess the answer must be yes but i thought id ask here before i start doing all that track splitting. thanks for any help.

yes you can


Please kindly let me know how to split continuous audio into separate tracks. Thanks!

You can do it [u]using labels[/u].

But, I usually just select/highlight one track/song at a time and then File → Export → Export Selected Audio one at a time. Sometimes I’ll select a little extra, then re-import and zoom-in to more-carefully trim the beginning & end.

Thanks! I record sounds continually with about 5-second gap between each sound. Is there a setting that can export recording by each individual sound?
