Audacity

Per several readers suggestion, I tried Audacity first since it's free and easily downloadable. I'm running into a problem though - it doesn't seem to allow you to make marks/cuts/insertions in less than 1 second increments, and in terms of a dancing song, 1 second is a really long time. Am I missing how to get around this, or is this really a limitation?

  • You still can only select in 1-second units when you directly drag-select on the waveform itself?

  • Edit→Snap-To…→Off or choose a minor unit other than seconds in one of the Selection toolbar drop-down lists (by default at the bottom of the window).

  • Under the Edit menu, Snap-To is not a choice I have. Perhaps this is a problem unique to this version.

  • Which version are you using, and on which platform? I checked 1.2.5 and 1.3.3b on OS X. The manual has more on the menu and the toolbar.
