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.
