Headphones can be loaned from the Help Desk. Plug them into the audio receiver as shown.
As your recording gets longer, seeing your audio waveforms at different magnifications can be helpful for making specifics edits or fades. To zoom in/out of the timeline, hold CTRL and scroll wheel up or down.
Zoom in until you can see the first two or three seconds of the waveform.
Click in the waveform to place your cursor about 1-2 seconds after the start and highlight the section of audio you want to apply the fade to.
Click on Effect > Fade In. The first few seconds of the audio will smoothly fade in.
Click on Effect > Fade Out at the last seconds of a track to fade out.
It's best practice to record ten seconds of room noise at the beginning for noise removal later. Click and drag your mouse to highlight this “silent” section of your recording. Click Effect > Noise Reduction and then select Get Noise Profile.
Once you’ve captured the Noise Profile, select the entire audio clip by double-clicking the waveform or pressing CTRL-A.
Go back to Effect > Noise Reduction. Leaving the default settings, click Okay and it will remove the background noises from the entire audio track.
Click File > Export > Export as MP3 (or another desired file type)
