Hi Ron!
That would suggest that there is no audio in the track. Or you could be at
the end of the track, in which case no audio would be plaied. Press j to
move the cursor to the beginning and try again. Shift-S is a toggle, so
pressing it again will unsolo the track and you should be back to normal.
Another thing. Before pressing enter you should press ctrl-shift-A to make
sure all tracks are unselected. It's frustrating to have carefully edited
a track, only to find that another was also selected and is now rouined.
Cheers, Robbie

Hi Robbie.
Just tried following your instructions and have run in to a problem.
Having selected the first track by pressing Enter, I then did Shift s as
you said.  The problem I now have, is that I can't hear any audio at all.
I tried listening to tracks 2 and 3 separately, but there is no sound
there either.
I will try looking at the Audacity manual now I know what to look for, but
any ideas would be really helpful.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Ron!
Press enter on the first track to select it and press shift-s to solo it.
Move the cursor to the end or where ever you want the second track to
start. Press shift-s again to unsolo the track and enter to unselect it.
Press enter on the second track and then press alt-T-A-C to align it.
To join the tracks press alt-T-X to mix and render them into one.
Cheers, Robbie

Hi everyone.
Having recently started something I forgot to press k in order to continue
it at the end of the track.  Consequently, the 2 recordings sound
simultaneously when I press space to play.
What I want to do is split the 2 sounds and join them where appropriate.
I am assuming this is in the tracks menu, but could do with some
Best wishes to all!
