I had another go with Audacity this weekend and came across this tutorial for absolute beginners.
David Taylor‘s introduction is clear and systematic. He tells you everything you need to know to record, edit and tidy up audio in a little over fifteen minutes – fifteen minutes very well spent.
I like that it assumes no prior knowledge, covered everything you need to know with some nice details, and ignored the rest… and treats you as a beginner but not an idiot.
I’m convinced. My recent adventure went far better than my first try, and Audacity will almost certainly be my tool of choice for making the next episode – or prototype episode – of the DC podcast.
Thank you David!
P.S. There’s an reference in the video to Son of Citation Machine, which looks like a good resource…
