Thanks a bunch for responding. When I get some time to work on this again I'll do that. Do you know if I'm supposed to have either of the tracks selected? Would you select just the track you're making the change on? Take care.

However, its not so easy to use a similar method for your bass, as the duration of the plucked notes on the bass will be quiet long, as opposed to the clicks picked up by the microphone which are very short an so its much easier to hear when an individual click starts.
In the case of your bass, it may be ok to find out a latency correction which is good enough, just using trial and error. As the guide says, there's a setting for the latency correction in the recording category of the preferences dilaog. The number should be negative to bring the added track forward in time. So if you say that the bass is a little behind the drum track, you could try making the existing number more negative. So if the number was -100 milliseconds, you could try changing it to -120 milliseconds and see if that's any better.
let us know how you get on, David. ________________________________ From: Steve Schnelle <papaschnelle@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: audacity <audacity4blind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, 27 November 2011, 19:57 Subject: [audacity4blind] sinchronizing tracks Hi folks. I am attempting my first multi trackproject and I'm having a little difficulty. I've put down a drum track but when
I play my bass along with it, the bass track seems to be a little behind thedrum track. I've read the part of the tutorial that talks about latency but I don't know if this applies to my dilemma. I know my timing isn't that much off so any suggestions would be appreciated. I wonder if there is a quick fix for
sinchronizing tracks? I'm using the Audacity 1.3 beta and Jaws 13. Thanks in advance.
