Merge multiple mp3

Post by djdan_23 » Thu Aug 16, 2018 11:58 am

I'm using this nice software since many years now. And now I would like to use it
to merge multiple mp3 together to have only one track.
What would be the easiest and best way to do it.
Thanks at advance.

Audacity 2.2.2
Windows 7

1) Import all the MP3 files into Audacity
2) they will all be on separate tracks
3) use Tracks > Align Tracks > Align End to End
4) they will all still be on separate tracks but lined up one after the other
5) use File > Exprt > Export as MO3
6) result -> a single MP3 file where all the imported MP3s play one after the other.

Many thanks it works perfectly.
One observation: we must do "SELECT ALL" between #2 and #3 of your explanation. ;)
