The Play-at-Speed tool in Audacity can save you time in your podcast editing. It’s versatile in that it gives you a way to speed up the tracks you’re editing so you don’t have to go through them in real time. It also gives you the ability to slow down a track if you need to isolate a section of audio that needs special attention.
Interested in going deeper in Audacity? I teach Audacity Bootcamp: Beginner to Advanced at Udemy.com. As of this recording, it consists of 54 on-demand video lectures and I update it as needed. Check it out if you haven’t already. There are several videos you can preview.
I also mention my Zoom H6 Audio Recording Essentials class in this video. It’s 26 on-demand video lectures that show you the hardware and software of the Zoom H6 and how to record and navigate the different menus.
