Mixing Music with Audacity


The children from Year 4 have been using Audacity to mix a selection of tracks.  Tracks were chosen from royalty free sites such as: Incompetech, Sound Bible and Bensounds and downloaded to the computer.  The children then selected part of the track and used the trimming tool to cut the music.  The selections were imported into Audacity and effects added where required.  The tracks were then exported as a WAV file.

Thank you to Steve, who kindly donated four refurbished computers to our school.  The children are delighted.
