Audacity Tutorial: Splicing Audio Together (Correcting Mistakes)

Thanks to Glenn Murphy for his questions on recording and editing using Audacity.

This video shows you how to go back and take mistakes out of your audio, add a retake and then mix them together into one audio track again. It’s really simple, and the good thing about Audacity is it makes it difficult for you to make any silly mistakes when editing and re-recording.

Hope this helps – let me know if you have any other questions about using Audacity

If you have the option, make sure you click the HQ button on the bottom right of the video in order to see it in higher resolution (otherwise it all looks a bit fuzzy).

Don’t forget to watch my previous Audacity videos for more tips by doing a search on the blog for Audacity Tutorial.

  2. The sermon I am editing today sounds fuzzy, distorted, as though the mic was too close to the mouth.

    Any suggestions?


  3. Hmmm, I don’t think there is a lot you can do with the audio to make it really clear. You might want to try playing with some of the effects like the FFT filter to see if you can make it sound a bit better.

    Do you know why it recorded that way?

  4. Thanks for that. I am recording meditations and the advice was just what I needed
