Now that the time shift tool is no longer a part of Audacity, how do we move audio segments? With the advent of Audacity version 3.1.x moving audio around has gotten easier and quicker. In this video, I show you how to split audio into separate segments, how to join audio segments together, and how to move audio now that the time shift tool is no longer with us.

In this short tutorial I show you how to make a backup copy of your working Audacity project file. Project backups were introduced in Audacity version 3.0.0 and are a convenient way to backup your work, keeping the backup copy separate from your working copy. Project backups are identical to your working project but are essentially a snapshot of your working project at the moment in time that you create it. You can give your backup copy it’s own name and save it in any folder. This is a great way to make backups of your project at critical points in your editing because it give you a convenient way to go back to a version of the project before changes were made, if needed.

Audacity version 3.1.3 is out. There are some significant fixes with this release. In this video, I talk about one of them that I had previously mentioned in a video (link below) and reported to Audacity. Namely, the inability to change or delete a clip name without it causing Audacity to crash when using sync-lock tracks. That’s been fixed in this version of Audacity. This only affected Mac users. In this video I’m using a 2017 MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and Audacity version 3.1.3.
And a big shoutout and thank you to all of you! I’ve reached 1,000 subscribers!! This blows my mind. Thank you all for sticking with me on my channel. You all rock!

This is the first of my Audacity tutorial videos. My Audacity tutorials are short videos walking through one feature or process within Audacity. This video walks you through the installation of a Nyquist plugin in Audacity. For this video, I am running Audacity version 3.1.2 on a 2017 MacBook Pro.
What’s the difference between the amplify effect and the LUFS effect in Audacity? Can I use amplify in place of loudness leveling? The biggest problem with using Amplify to make levels consistent in an audio track, is the amount of time it’s going to take to fix it. You’re going to have to go to each spot in your project where the audio is either real low or too high and apply a different amount of amplification to each one.
Applying Loudness Leveling is much better and much easier. It sets the overall loudness of the track or project to the specified LUFS level from start to finish one time, eliminating the need to find and correct every variation in amplitude individually.
I talk briefly about the Auphonic Desktop Leveler in this video. It’s a stand-alone program that levels the audio you export from Audacity, along with performing other behind-the-scenes audio production. I use the Auphonic Desktop Leveler on every piece of audio that I export out of Audacity. I’ll be doing a separate video on how to use it soon but in the meantime, I’ve included a link to it in the event you want more info. I’m not associated with Auphonic in any way. It’s simply a good product that I use and recommend.
