Editing Your Talk Show

Once you have recorded your talk show, you will definitely want to listen to it at least once and make any additional edits you like. Personally, I record everything in wav format. It's a loss-less format and can be easily edited in Windows XP's included Sound Recorder (see picture below). Sound Recorder is quite basic and therefore easy to use for almost any user. Training is minimal. And best of all, it's free.

Opening a Wave File

With Sound Recorder, you can open a wave file in two ways, using the open dialog box under the File menu or drag a wave file onto the Sound Recorder. I prefer the second method, because I use the Windows Explorer to mange my files. As soon as you drag the wave file onto the Sound Recorder, it will open the wave file and start playing. If this is the first time you opened the file, you might consider listening through the audio file to see what you recorded. Otherwise, press the stop button and start editing the audio file.

Editing with Sound Recorder

While listening to your wave file, you should make note of the start time and end time of the audio you want for your audience. With these end times, you can use Sound Recorder's two very powerful editing functions: Delete Before Current Position and Delete After Current Position. Both of these functions are available under the Edit menu.

Delete After Current Position

With the start and end time, move the Sound Recorder slider to the end time.

Sometimes the slider doesn't have enough resolution. In that case, you'll want to move the slider to a time just prior to the end time. Press the play button. Play the audio file until you get closer to the end time. Then press the stop button.

Once the slider is located at the end time, pull down the Edit menu and select Delete After Current Position (see picture below). Sound Recorder will ask,

All data after the position xxx.xx seconds will be deleted. Do you want to continue?

xxx.xx is the end time. Press the OK button and all audio after the slider position will be deleted.

Delete Before Current Position

Now, move the Sound Recorder slider to the start time. Once the slider is located at the start time, pull down the Edit menu and select Delete Before Current Position (see picture below). Sound Recorder will ask,

All data before the position xxx.xx seconds will be deleted. Do you want to continue?

xxx.xx is the start time. Press the OK button and all audio before the slider position will be deleted.

Saving the Modified Audio File

When you are done with editing your sound file, you'll want to save it. I suggest saving it under a different file name so that you can keep the original. Pull down the File menu and choose Save As... Type in a different file name in the Save As dialog box. Press the Save button when you are ready to save the file.

After saving your sound file, you are ready to move onto Converting Your Talk Show.
