Default Question about "Audacity".

INFO:

Using the latest version of Audacity on a Windows Vista Laptop (Vista fully updated w/service packs).


Okay I'm not someone that has a lot of history with audio editing or anything like that, but I'm putting together a podcast which I do in Audacity. I usually will manually import each track in, and slide it to begin right around the time of the 1st track ended.

Example:

Track 1 is 5 minutes.

Track 2 is imported, and immediately is lined up to start at the same time as the Track 1.

I have to manually slide that track five minutes forward and line it up to begin when the previous one ended.

Is there a way for me to import say twenty tracks, and somehow highlight them all and have it automatically line them up so they are set up to begin as the previous track ends?

Below are examples of what I am talking about, because I feel like I'm not making ANY sense.

Importing two tracks will show up like THIS:



I would like to know if once it looks like THAT, I can simply highlight them and select some option in the tools or whatever, that will automatically switch it to where it looks like THIS:



That way, I don't have to manually do this 20 times, and having to keep sliding across and down to get to each track.

Thank you for any help anyone can provide.

Have you tried Tracks > Align Tracks? For example, and there may be a better way to accomplish this, but this should work...

On track 2, click and drag until you reach the end of track 1; your cursor should automatically snap to the endpoint of track 1. Then go to Tracks > Align Tracks > Align with Selection End.

Fool around with the different options under Tracks > Align Tracks, and let us know if you are able to figure out the best way.

Thanks for the response.

that would kind of defeat the purpose of what I'm wanting. lol. I already do THAT. And when it's only a few tracks, it's not that bad, but when I'm importing twenty tracks I have to start with two, slide it over and get it where it'll start a few seconds before Track 1 ends, and then once that's set, go down and over to track 3 and slide that over to where Track 2 ends, and then go down to track 4 and put that where Track 3 ends, and over and over and over.

I tried the align tracks before and it didn't work, but I don't know if it just is a case of there not really being anything that does what I was hoping it would do.

I can manually do it, it's just time consuming and I'm using a laptop now rather than my tower (which I no longer have) and so it's nowhere near as good processing power wise.

Anyway, thank you for your response.

Did you ever figure it out, I'm interested in the answer
