Chapter 3. Creating a Podcast > Add music and finishing touches

5. Add music and finishing touches

The voice recording is now just right, but it's just a plain voice recording. Now is the time to import any music (see “Legalities” earlier in this chapter) into the background and/or at the beginning and end of the podcast. Audacity allows for the easy drag-and-drop addition of any MP3 or WAV file. Simply pick up the MP3 file you want, and drag it to the area beneath your main sound track (Figure 3.83). The MP3 will be added as a separate audio track. When the music is in place, you can highlight specific sections and adjust the volume or apply effects such as a fade-in or fade-out as you see fit (Figures 3.84, 3.85, and 3.86).

Figure 3.83. Drag audio files directly to Audacity. When you do, the files will be imported automatically.
