Organizing Your Files

Be sure to make a folder for all the “assets” you’ll use for your episode. It’s a good idea to make subfolders too: Narration, Interviews, Active Sound, Ambient Sound, etc. Once you take a sound file and load it into Audacity, be sure not to move it from the folder it’s in.

You should name your files so you’ll recognize them, like such:

Intro New Lady Narration
Intro Music bed Sunny Day
Segment 1 Arrival narration
Segment 1 Ambient sound: chirps and clucks
Segment 2 Sound Effect Alarm
Segment 2 Narration
Segment 2 Active Sound New Lady Screech


Rough Cut – Alessia Pisicchio

Hi all, so this is what I have so far for my cut, I have a background song of taylors in the background in the beginning three minutes and am wondering if it is a good idea or if i should put in more subtle music? I also plan on editing in concert sounds towards the end and a proper conclusion. Also around 6:47- 7:54 , I understand there is a long pause. but i am working on cutting it out and just need to figure out how to do it because my computer was not allowing me to. Thanks!
