Creating an .mp3 audio file for podcasting, posting, embedding or attaching.

  1. Familiarize yourself with the buttons at the top of the screen, and which button serves what purpose, such as Skip to Start, Play, Record, Pause, Stop, and Skip to End.

  1. Skip to Start returns you to the beginning of the sound clip.

  2. Play begins playing from the selected postion.

  3. Record begins recording from the input device.

  4. Pause will halt the recording until it is pressed again.

  5. Stop will stop the recording and allow you to edit it and save it.

  6. Skip to end moves to the end of the clip.

  1. To record, press “Record,” and start speaking into the microphone.

  1. Press “Stop,” to end the recording. A blue graph is created on the bar – this is the representation of the sound file you just made.

  2. The sound bar can be manipulated; you can select portions of it, zoom in and out to have more precise control, or even delete, copy, and paste portions of it.

        1. Record yourself snapping your fingers.

        2. Copy the sound.

        3. Press “Skip to End” and paste it. Repeat this three times.

        4. Press “Skip to Start.” Play this from the beginning, and it will sound as if you are repeatedly snapping your fingers.
