welcome to the list. Just out of interest, which audio editor are you using at
the moment to record your shows?
There are a number of ways in Audacity to do what you want to do, but perhaps
the most straightforward is to have each voice break and each song as a
Some of the important points in doing this:
1. If you import some audio, which in your case would be a song, a new track is
appended to the project, and the audio is inserted into that track. The
shortcut for importing audio is ctrl+shift+I.
2. For recording each voice section, if you press shift+R, this records in new
track at the end of the project. On the transport menu, there is a transport
sub menu, where you should make sure that the overdub option is not checked, as
you don't want to hear any of the other tracks when you record your voice.
3. When you've got all your tracks together, you then need to align the audio
in the tracks so that they play after each other, rather than all at the same
time. To do this, press ctrl+shift+k to select all the tracks, open the tracks
menu, open the align tracks sub menu, and choose align end to end.
If you need more detailed information of certain issues, just mail the list,
