The main difference between Roll and Punch in Pro Tools compared with Audacity is that Pro Tools allows multiple audio clips to overlap on the same track. Audacity can't do that. In Audacity, if audio clips overlap they must be on different tracks. So, in Audacity, the way to "Roll and Punch" is a little less convenient:

(On Mac OS X, the Command button is usually used instead of the Ctrl button)

1) Delete any bad bit that needs to be replaced.
2) Click on the track a couple of seconds before the end of the track (your "pre-roll" time).
3) Press the Record button (shortcut "R"). The new take appears on a new track.
4) Space to stop (or "Stop" button).

To avoid building up a huge number of tracks, non-overlapping clips may be easily moved to the same track by dragging with the Time Shift tool while holding down the Ctrl key. (Tip: Use the F5 key to select the Time Shift tool and F1 for the normal "Selection" tool).


After 3 "Roll and Punch" recordings, you will have 4 audio clips on 4 separate tracks:

Ctrl + drag with the Time Shift tool to move non-overlapping clips, so that you now have all of the clips in 2 tracks:

Delete the empty tracks by clicking on the [X] in the top left corner of the track:

The traditional way to do this is set a label at the fluff point so you can go back later.
