Mojave 10.14.4: an audio file is too long to upload to a website. I plan to cut half of the file and export the first half. Can I create a separate audio file of the second half by selecting “new” and pasting the cut portion? Thank you for your assistance.
Easiest way to split into two files:
Select from the start of the track, to about half way through (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/audacity_selection.html)
“File menu > Export > Export Selected Audio” (https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/file_menu_export.html)
Select from the middle of the track to the end.
“File menu > Export > Export Selected Audio”
place a label at the beginning and a label in the middle (you’ll likely need a central label for Steve’s method anyway for selection accuracy) and then use Export Multiple.
I used the shorter approach and it worked fine. Thank you both for your insight.
