The resources in this tutorial will help you learn some techniques for creating an intro to a podcast using multiple audio clips. This tutorial shows how to use two free audio editors:
Pick one -- to follow along with this tutorial you can choose either Audacity or BandLab but do not need to learn both.
There is more than one way to do pretty much anything when working an audio project. This overview shows a few techniques but doesn't cover all of them. You may want to use one or more of the techniques in a different way or use different editing software. The basics covered in this example will be applicable in other situations and with other software. The specifics may be different, so you may need to search for more tutorials on YouTube for your particular software or tool.
If you are comfortable with using media editors and want the super-quick version of this tutorial, skip to the end for the playthrough that is a demonstration of putting all of the steps together with Audacity into a 5-minute video.
This video play list is a walk-through of all of techniques shared in this tutorial. You can watch all the videos here or watch them in parts along with the accompanying text on the following pages.
