This is a video taken from a Lunch N’ Learn on getting started with Audacity. If you want to take a dive into not only the “how” to perform a task in Audacity, but also the when and the why of creating great audio, then I encourage you to check it out.
Audacity is a great free tool for creating voiceover recordings for your ELearning projects. In this video, I go over how to set up your preferences, hardware and software to make sure that you won’t be spending time fixing issues in post production.
If you develop eLearning, or work in corporate communications and marketing, you have likely been handed a script that a stakeholder wants to have recorded to synchronize with their presentation. If that sounds like you, and you have a copy of the freeware Audacity, then you are in luck. Audacity has a feature that allows you to tag your single audio file and export it into multiple files, all labeled and ready to insert and match to your visuals!
For a little while now I have been intending to show you all how to edit your audio inside of Audacity from A-Z. By that I mean recording, normalizing, amplifying, removing background noise, and finally making some minor adjustments to bass and treble to perfect your sound. In this brief tutorial I show you how to do just that with one of my favorite Audacity Effects plugins, LoudMax by Thomas Mundt. This free plugin will allow you to amplify your audio with clean results, much cleaner than the Amplify Effect that comes with Audacity. You can get the plugin and a video on how to install it listed in linked in the video description.
Twisted Wave is a great tool for recording, and even editing, your audio. However, it has never had the ability to perform noise reduction to minimize your noise floor hiss and hum. Let me show you a simple workflow to make that happen quickly!
