Seamless Merge Tracks In Audacity
« on: March 16, 2017, 09:33:56 PM »
So, I have four tracks from some cassettes i'd like to merge so I can hear the music without the slight skip.  So far I have the tracks aligned end to end and haven't done anything else to them.  Could someone show me who I can merge these tracks seamlessly?

Thanks!
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

Go to the menu and go...

Tracks > Mix and Render To New Track (this will give you a new combined track with the originals in place) or
Track > Mix and Render (this will combine the tracks to a new track in place of the originals)

Not sure what you're trying for here, but if you need to remove some silence between songs, you could use Edit > Cut or control-X?!

If there's a seam there that you then want to heal up, select over it and click control-J to Join, or in the menu, Edit > Clip Boundaries > Join.

If you still hear a discontinuity at the seams, you can try a quick fade out and fade in to clean that up?

Live recording on cassettes that when I transferred into Audacity and tried to merge each track ( 4 sides ) I can hear the slightest skip or gap. 

I'll try the suggestions.

Thanks.
