Fun with Audacity!

Last week, in class, we learned a few new tips and tricks about Audacity.  I have worked with Audacity, however I don't use it as much anymore as there was so much that I could do in GarageBand just as well.
I'm starting to see differently, now.  I learned how to reverse a track, which will be a lot of fun to do with my 7th grade students as we study Rock & Roll music in class...hello Beatles!  I also learned how to remove the vocals from a track (well, mostly), which will help when I need to remove certain words from a song for our dance line group, or when they need a karaoke-type track for the variety show, and you can't find one on iTunes (it HAS happened before).  If you'd like to know how to do this, let me know and I'll try to make a tutorial for it.  I have a feeling I'll be doing this anyways for some of the teachers at my school...that way THEY know how to do it and I don't have to do everyone's work!
I love having all sorts of new tools and tricks at my disposal!

  1. It was my virgin experience with Audacity, and I think I could have a lot of fun with that program. I can't wait til we explore Garage Band!!
