Hi Diane,
others have replied, assuming that you want to record in the middle of another 
track. However if the track is already recorded, then there are a couple of 
ways of doing what you want.
The first is to
1. select the audio in the track which you want to add. Select the track, then 
press j followed by shift + k.
2. Press ctrl+c to copy the audio.
2. delete that track, by pressing shift+c.
3. select the track into which you want to insert the audio.
4. Move the cursor to where you want to insert the audio, and then press ctrl+v 
to paste.
 
The second method, aligns audio in tracks.
Assuming you have two tracks, and you want the second to play in the middle of 
the first.
1. Select the first track.
2. Move the cursor to where you want the second track to start.
3. press shift + k, to select a time range from the cursor to the end of the 
audio in the track.
3. On the edit menu, open the clip boundaries sub menu, and choose split new. 
The selected audio is moved to its own track, which will be the last track in 
the project, which in this case is the third track. (this track is selected).
4. Press ctrl+shift+a to deselect all the tracks.
You can then move the second track so that it starts at the end of the first 
track, and the third track so that it starts at the end of the second track. 
You can do this in the usual manner by pressing k to move the cursor to the end 
of the selected track, and on the tracks menu, in the align tracks sub menu, 
the align with cursor command, which move the audio in the selected track so 
that it starts at the cursor.
 
David.

Hi Everyone,

I understand how to add a track at the end of another track. But how do I
add a track in the middle of another track? Hope you can help. Thanks.

Diane
