Hello. I am just beginning to learn how to use Audacity to copy some old tape recordings into mp3 format using an NLS C-1 tape player. I have successfully installed the Lame encoder for saving to mp3 format. I'm trying to do something which should be very simple.
At times, I have a few extra seconds of audio at the end of a track that I want to delete. What I want to do is to select from the cursor position or from where I stopped playback up to the end of the track and delete that selection. I see several options in the Edit menu under Select which seems to be what I want but they never seem to work. I wind up deleting everything or I select audio in the other direction. Could someone please advise. Also, I am able to monitor what is on the tape while recording. I'm also trying to monitor the tape prior to recording and this doesn't seem to be happening. I'd welcome any advice. I don't need a lot of handholding as I like to think I'm a quick learner. Many thanks. -- David Goldfield, Assistive Technology Specialist WWW.David-Goldfield.Com<http://WWW.David-Goldfield.Com>
