Hi Listers.

Thanks Anders for your response.

I have three other questions.

What is the best way to figure out the length of an Audacity project.  I've 
made a single-track recording, and I want to know how long it is.

My last two questions have to do with editing.  What I do is, as I'm listening 
and discover a portion I want to delete, I press p, then left bracket, then 
space, space, then I hit p again where I want the selection of text to end.  
Then I hit right bracket, space, and control-k.  I'm not really interested in 
selecting time ranges, but is there another way, using less keystrokes, to do 
what I've described above?

Also, I'm having trouble deleting the last few seconds of my recording.  What 
is the quickest way to delete from where I pause to the end of the project?

    I'm using Audacity 2.0 with Windows XP Pro. 

    Does anyone know if there's a way to increase the playback speed of a 
project, while keeping the pitch at normal?  I've set up hotkeys to allow for 
quicker or slower playback, but the pitch of my voice also gets adjusted, which 
I don't want. 

    Another thing I'm wondering is how can I increase the speed of a recording 
and have that speed increase saved so that when it's converted to an MP3, the 
listener will hear it at the faster speed.
