how can i cut songs on my computer
« on: April 02, 2009, 02:26:04 PM »
having a small technical issue i know there is someone on the boards who will know how to do this.  im trying to burn a cd of a live concert and the length is 1 minute over the limit of hte cd.  i dont want to delete a whole song just for that so i wondered if there was a simple way to just chop off a minute of cheering that is at the end of the last song so i could get it all on one cd.  thanks for any help!

Yeah, Audacity is great for stuff like that.  Just download the program, import the song, and cut the bits off you don't want.  It's really easy.

okay forgive me for being a noob but i cant seem to get this program to do a thing.  i opened the track with it used the selection tool to highlight the part of the waveform i want to keep and pressed trim outsied the selection.  nothing happened.  i pressed cut nothing happened.  i pressed copy nothing happened.  i tried pressing cut and copy and pasting them in a new document nothing happened.  when i click edit after making a selection every option is grey and unclickable.  it looks really easy and simple but nothing seems to work.  am i doing something wrong here ???

Make sure you haven't pressed the Play button and Paused it.  That could be the problem.  Use the Stop button.
