String together/compile-multiple files?

Windows 7- Audacity 2.0.6

I am studying German. I have created files for various phrases/words so that I can put them on a CD and listen to/practice them on a portable player while on a flight to Germany. I would also like to listen to all of them in the background while working at my computer at home. Is there a way to compile/string together (on one file) all of them so that I only have to play the one file instead of all of the files individually? If so, where can I find instructions/tutorial etc. for doing this?

Import all the files into Audacity, then Edit > Select > All if necessary then Tracks > Align Tracks > Align End to End.

Then export in your chosen audio format and the snippets will play one after the other. WAV format is the best format for an audio CD. See Tutorial - Burning music files to a CD. An audio CD will be limited to 80 minutes in most cases.


Thanks Gale,

Don’t forget to feed your dog.

I don’t have one. If you need more help than I gave, please ask again and be specific.


Remind me not to sit next to you on the plane :wink:

Hey Gale, that worked and I didn’t even need a hammer or WD-40!
Pet: Go out in the yard and get a butterfly and then a nice potted flower to feed it. They don’t live long so you don’t get too attached and don’t need to have a funeral. Don’t know who would come anyway………….maybe some other bugs.
Now I’ll try to put it on CD……….thanks for the tutorial link for this.


I’ll be on Lufthansa so it’s best I try to sit among some friendly Germans who might want to help me. There are some first class seats up in front where everybody is quiet and polite……………but they cost more.

When I was trying to learn German a few years ago, every time I went to Germany and Switzerland on business they always wanted to use and practise their English :frowning:



French = language of romance
Italian = language of music
German/Latin = language of science/biology/physics
Or something like that.
Spanish, I forgot
I speak them all + Japanese, Portuguese but I forget which is which.
What I know for sure is that English is the language of MONEY (all bankers and any kind of commerce)!
So you’ll find somebody who speaks, or wants to learn it, pretty much anywhere you go.
