Please forgive me if this has already been answered. I am visually impaired and I need help. I recorded a vocal track along with a piano track. Unfortunately, they don’t “line up.” I need to “shift” the vocal track just a smidgen to the right. How can I align these tracks so that the vocals are on the downbeat? My sound card drivers are updated, as well as my Windows 10 Pro (21H1).
Generally, the way this is done is to first record the piano track without vocals, then record the vocals to a second track while listening the the first track while wearing headphones. See: Tutorial - Multi-track Overdubbing
See, especially, the Synchronizing Tracks tip at the end.
In the absence of the latency test, trial & error will be required.
IIRC the default “latency compensation” in Audacity is minus one hundred (-100) milliseconds.
To shift a smidgen right, try changing “latency compensation” to zero instead.
If that’s too far right, try -10, -20, -30 , -40, etc until it sounds in-sync.
