Course Intro - Welcome to Audacity!

Hi, Carey here…

I'm not one to mince words. I think you'll see that in this video. It introduces you to the course ahead, challenging you to get your mind right and your attitude determined so you can truly MASTER the Audacity software. Take a bit to listen to this, then set your mind and get busy!

Download and Install the Audacity Program

This video assumes you do not have Audacity on your computer already. You'll walk through the step by step process of finding Audacity on the internet, downloading it, and installing it for the type of computer system you are using.

The basics of the Audacity Interface
Once you complete these videos you'll be able to get around Audacity comfortably, do some of the more essential functions, and edit audio on a basic level.
The basic layout and interface of Audacity
This video will walk you through the layout of the Audacity software to help you become familiar with the program. Take your time to walk through this one. Go through the things I cover in your own program, as it may be laid out slightly different than what you see on my screen. Be sure to get this down. The more familiar you are with the layout of the program, the more efficient you'll be in using the Audacity program.You will also learn how to export an Audacity project into another format - mp3, wav, aiff, or whatever you prefer. Those are the formats you would use in most media players, or to upload to a podcast host like Libsyn.Watch until near the end of the video to get the website where you may need to download the LAME mp3 codec that will enable you to export mp3 files.You can find that plugin file for FREE at http://lame.sourceforge.net
Basic Functions of Audacity - Part 1
This session is all about Audacity "projects" - and that's a distinction you'll want to get very clear in your head. Watch and listen to learn the difference and know how you can create a project, open a project, save a project, and import sounds or music into an existing project.

This session will show you how to record sounds using a microphone, how to import music into the program, how to play those audio files, how to save the project, and how to export the project into a mp3 file for use in other programs and applications.
