I'm currently running Audacity 2.0.6 on Windows7.
I have a newbie question: I need to extract several parts from an audio file, add some fade out/fade in to mash them up, and save the whole thing as an audio file.
What is the right way to do this?
Is there a way to 1) mark several parts with start/end points, 2) tell Audacity to remove the rest that I don't need, 3) add some fade out/in for each segment, and 4) save the whole thing as an audio file?

Before I spend more time reading, I forgot to say that I need to 1) select multiple parts of a track because I wrote down the start-end timestamps for each, and 2) delete the useless audio between them. Next, I'll have to add some fade in/outs before exporting the whole thing.
Currently, if I doctor the first part, all the subsequent timestamps are wrong so I have to compute where the next parts are
Do you confirm that Audacity supports this today?
Found a work-around:
- Launch a second instance of Audacity
- In the first instance, create regions for each segment you want to keep
- For each region: Select it by clicking on its label in the Label Track, select Edit > Copy, switch to the other instance of Audacity, select Edit > Paste
Maybe there's a faster way, but it does the job.
Good to know. I'll give it a try next time. Thank you.
