How Do I Split Recordings into Tracks in Audacity 1.3

Using Sound Finder to Split Tracks and Remove Silences

Always Remove DC Offset First

Splitting a long recording into separate tracks is easily done in Audacity 1.3 beta by Using the Sound Finder function in the Analyze menu.

The key to success - as with so many other things in audio processing - is to remove DC offset at the outset. Without this step, the process may not even get off the ground.

Once you've finished analysis, use Export Multiple to save the individual tracks as separate MP3 files. The Analyze menu also has a new feature for assigning regular interval labels which may be useful if you wish to split very long pieces of speech, dialogue or narrative into smaller chunks for ease of use of iPods and other MP3 players.
