Re: trimming an audio file in goldwave

Hi, Keith,

There are a couple of ways to do the trimming. I'll give you the simplest way.

1. Locate the start of the section you wish to keep.

2. Press the start marker button (left bracket).

3. Press control-T. All data before the start marker will be deleted.

4. Begin playing the file. Playback should start where you intended. If it begins in the wrong place, press control-Z. Doing that will restore the file to its original state. Set a new start point and repeat the above steps.
5. Move to the end of the section you wish to keep.

6. PPress the start marker.

7. Press the delete key. The unneeded section will be deleted. This is true because the finish marker is already at the proper point.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [TechTalk] trimming an audio file in goldwave

Hi, I am wondering how to trim an audio file using goldwave.

I have a very long recording of my father's funeral which I wish to trim the beginning portion and the end portion of the file, so i get the hour long mass to send to my family.

I know you place the beginning nd end markers using the braket keys and then am at a loss.

I have tried hitting the control T combo but that trimms everything outside the markers, which is the exact opposite of what I want to do.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
