Updated tutorials for Audacity (audio editing)
I finally revised and updated the three tutorials I use to teach journalism students and professionals how to edit audio using Audacity, a free program that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
- Super-Fast Guide to Audio Editing (PDF, 290 KB)
- Editing Audio with Audacity (Part 2) (PDF, 181 KB)
- Setting up preferences in Audacity (PDF, 157 KB)
Feel free to use these handouts “as is” in classrooms or training or workshops.
For an introduction to audio editing, I usually use only the first handout, the “super-fast guide.”
I would estimate I have used these handouts to train more than 200 journalists and students (maybe more than 300) in the past two years.
