In this video I take a look at the time track within Audacity and talk about it’s function and how to use it. The Audacity time track isn’t something we hear a lot about as podcasters but it’s one way to add special effects and automation to the speed of your tracks.
Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp. This video contains one of the free preview videos included in my Audacity Bootcamp course offered at Udemy. In it, I show you how to mix down a stereo track to mono and how to convert a mono track to stereo in Audacity. In addition to teaching Audacity at Udemy, be sure to subscribe to my Audacity Bootcamp YouTube Channel.
Let’s take a few minutes to talk about the high-pass and low-pass filters in Audacity. High-pass and low-pass filters are an effective way to attenuate unwanted frequencies above or below a set point that you determine. It can be another way of eliminating or reducing unwanted noise in your podcast.
Do you have questions about how to use the Zero Crossing Tool in Audacity? The Zero Crossing Tool ensures that the end points of the audio waveform you’ve selected are at the zero, or silent crossing point prior to editing the selection. This helps eliminate the possibility of popping sounds which can result from not using the Zero Crossing tool.
I use noise reduction in every Audacity project that I edit. It’s a good practice and it always contributes to your podcast episode sounding as clear and professionally edited as possible. This video is one of the free previews included in my Udemy course, Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced.
