In this video, learn about the special Cut and Split Cut commands found in Audacity. This are useful when you need to split a single audio recording into multiple sections, for instance, to apply different effects to one section or another.
- [Instructor] Previously we saw that the cut command … in Audacity has two variations, … both found under the Edit menu. … We have cut, and then Remove Special, Split Cut. … So we saw that cut removes the selected audio from the clip, … and the audio shifts to the right to take up the space … left by that section you removed. … But this is still one clip. … Notice if I select the time shift tool, … I can move the entire clip. … Let's undo that. … Now split cut on the other hand, … cuts the selected audio, … but leaves a gap where that audio was. … Again this might be useful … if you just wanted to get rid of some audio. … Maybe there was a cough or some unwanted noise in there, … but this allows you to leave the length … or timing of the track the same. … Now choosing split cut also leaves you … with two separate clips on the track. … Notice I can move both of these clips … independently of each other. … Having the audio on a single track as separate clips, … gives you the freedom to play around with the timing. …
