In this training we will cover how to use the DASH Lab sound booth as well as the Zoom portable recorder to record your audio/narration. Then we will cover the fundamentals of using Audacity to edit recordings (including, working with multiple tracks, adjusting the volume of the various tracks, deleting audio clips, as well as integrating fade in/out into your audio project).
