I have already a track. I want to play the track, at certain point pause, record my own voice, add this to the original track at the point I paused, then continue listening to the original track (from the point I left it + my addition), then pause again, insert my voice again and so on. I am talking about splitting/inserting/splitting/inserting, not overlapping . How can I do it easily?
Audacity 2.0.5 (from .exe file), Windows 7.
Thank you for your help.
However, when I press Shift-I get a pop-up message:
“device information is not available”
I tried on two different Windows 7 computers (Home premium and Professional), same error.
What should I do?
Steve made a small typo when he wrote out the steps. He meant CTRL + I. I’ve updated his steps.
SHIFT + I opens a dialogue where you should be able to change the input (recording) device. However the message indicates you don’t have any available recording devices, so you will have to fix that before you can record.
Right-click over the speaker icon by the system clock, then choose “Recording Devices”. Right-click over empty space and choose “Show Disabled Devices”. Right-click again and “Show Disconnected Devices”. Then right-click over each device and choose “Enable” if that is an option. See here for more help: Missing features - Audacity Support .
Oops. Yes I meant Ctrl+I. Thanks Gale.
