Getting Started with Audacity

Audacity is a free software program for recording and editing audio. You can use Audacity to record sounds onto your computer with a microphone or it can open and edit audio files, including tracks downloaded from the internet or copied from CDs. Audacity can open and save MP3, WAV, AIFF, and several other types of audio files.

You can edit recordings with Audacity the same way you edit text with a word processor. Audacity can cut, copy, splice, and mix sounds together. The first thing you will need to do is download the sound files you will be using to create a Jungle Theme sound loop. Click on the link below and save these files to your student folder. Once you finish this project you will then be challenged to create your own unique sound file for a fairy tale.
