Event Navigation

Audacity is a fantastic, free, easy-to-use software program that allows you easily record your spoken voice, or someone singing or playing an instrument. It’s perfect for recording musical performances, one-on-one interviews or shared stories. Audacity also makes it easy to edit recordings: chop out unwanted sections, make songs higher or lower in pitch and add effects.

In this webinar, our facilitator; Katie Wardrobe covered:

  • A quick tour of audacity
  • The basics of how to record
  • Which microphone to use when recording – including free and low-cost options
  • How to edit your recordings – it’s just like using Microsoft Word!
  • Easy ways to delete, copy and paste parts of your recording
  • How to import a recorded song from your iTunes library so you can edit it
  • Simple editing techniques – add some reverb, shorten a song, fade out the ending, make the song higher or lower in pitch
  • How to convert vinyl records or cassettes to a digital format (MP3) so that they can be played on iPods, Smartphones and other devices.
