These Audacity tutorials are like a video manual for Audacity, one step at a time so that you can SEE what to do rather than read it. I’m eager to put together truly helpful tutorials that enable you to learn the free Audacity software with less hassle and in less time! Let me know what functions of Audacity YOU’D like to see me cover in future Audacity tutorials! [divider top=”0″]
It may seem pretty simple to open up a file, but when it’s a new program (like Audacity may be to you) it can be a bit confusing. The bottom line is that you won’t be able to make use of these tutorials for Audacity unless you are able to get audio into the program to begin editing. There are two different ways to get audio files into the program, “open” and “import.” The “open” function is used to bring both program files and other types of files (mp3 for example) into the program. The “import” function will ONLY bring in non-Audacity files (mp3, wav, etc.). Those are the kinds of things this free Audacity tutorial will teach you how to do! Here’s the specifics of what you can expect to learn in this video tutorial…
You’ll learn how to start a new Audacity project
I’ll show you how to open an existing Audacity project
You’ll see how to import non-audacity audio into a project
You’ll learn how to save your project as an Audacity file
Finally, I’ll show you how to export your project to other formats you can use elsewhere (mp3, wav, etc.)
