Depending on how you want to handle it, I would just import both of them into separate tracks, and then if necessary, use something like [ while playing to start selection at a certain point, then stop playback, and go have a look at where that point is, and then make sure music track is not selected, using enter key to toggle selection in track listings, focus on/make sure second track is selected, and then use something like time shifter effect to just shift that second track to start where I'd want it, ctrl + A to select all tracks, and space to listen again to make sure it was now aligned correctly, etc. etc. But, do see that on tracks menu, there's an align to sub-menu, and the one item there is align to selection start/cursor, so should work in a pretty similar fashion if you can move cursor to relevant position first - edit menu, move cursor submenu, etc. etc. Stay well Jacob Kruger Blind Biker Skype: BlindZA "Roger Wilco wants to welcome you...to the space janitor's closet..." ----- Original Message ----- From: Mike Bernard To: audacity4blind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, 03 March, 2014 5:45 PM Subject: [audacity4blind] overlapping two tracks Hello fellow Audacity users: I have an audio track and a dry voice track and I'd like to overlap the two, so that the dry voice track will begin playing at a certain point within the already existing audio file. Someone on the list said that the easiest way to do this, was to select the portion of the existing audio where you want the other track to begin, by playing the file and then pressing shift A. But it seems like there's one other step prior to that, which I can't quite remember what it is. Could someone explain again how to do this? Thanks. Mike Rochester, NY.
