splitting files into clips

I recorded my band on my phone and I want to split each song into seperate tracks . my total recording is about 20 min long but when I load it on audasity it makes it about 4 sec and it sounds like a squeek. I cant figure out how to fix that…oh yeah I got my audasity from the internet not sure what version

The song from your phone is probably in a form that Audacity doesn’t understand. When that happens, Audacity plays the song as if it didn’t have compression and you get that squeak.

You can install the FFMpeg software that allows Audacity to open many different modern compressions. “lame” is the software you add to allow you to make MP3 files.



I have a file converter and I changed it to wma format and I still get the same result
