Audacity: Tutorial handout

During the workshop on Friday, I mentioned that I have a handout or instruction sheet for Audacity. It will be helpful if you forgot to take notes during class.

Here is the link:

Super-Fast Guide to Audio Editing (PDF, 290 KB)

This handout covers everything I showed during our workshop and also some additional things.

On page 5, it shows how to convert a stereo file to mono. This cuts the file size in half (very good for Web downloads).

You can find more audio resources here.

There is a second handout for Audacity. It shows how to edit multiple audio tracks in one project. This is good for adding natural sound, or combining more than one interview.
