IMPORTANT: Since recording this video, Audacity version 3.0.2 has been released and is now the production version. When I recorded this video, it was still in pre-release.
In this video, I show you how to create and run a macro that will export your project as a WAV file using a keyboard shortcut and I show you where Audacity version 3.0.2 stores your macros because it’s different in version 3.0.2.
Welcome to this 5th episode of the recently launched Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. Today, let’s talk about the new macro features in Audacity 3.0.0. I’ve started using macros to run repetitive commands within Audacity and it’s a real time saver. Unlike Office programs like Word or Excel, where you can record mouse clicks to create a macro, you have to build macros manually in Audacity. But once they’re built, it’s a pretty sweet feature.
Audacity macros aren’t new to this version of Audacity but the ability to import and export them is. This means that macros can now be easily shared. In addition, you can now put comments inside a macro to explain a step or describe the macro. These are great features if you use macros like I do. Let’s talk.
