File Menu: Export
Additionally you can export label files or MIDI or save a compressed copy of your project in a set of Ogg Vorbis formatted files.
|For all types of audio export including Export Selected Audio and Export Multiple, tracks that are muted are not exported.|
Exports to specific audio file formats
Export as MP3
Export as WAV
Export as Ogg Vorbis
Export Audio... Ctrl + Shift + E
Exports the current Audacity project as an audio file format that can be read by other applications. As with the exports to specific audio file formats, if there are multiple tracks in your project, they will be automatically mixed in the exported data. For more information about mixing, see Mix and Render on this page.
You can choose the exported file format and settings from the Export Audio Dialog.
Export Selected Audio...
This is the same as Export Audio above, but it only exports the part of the project that is selected. For example, to save a small piece of a long track as a separate file, just select that audio as described in How do I select audio in one track? before using Export Selected Audio.
If you have any Label Tracks, this command will export all their labels as a text file. The text in each label appears as one line in the exported file, prefaced by the start time and end time of the label (in seconds). If you have multiple label tracks, the labels in the uppermost label track appear first in the file.
To import the labels into an Audacity project later, use thecommand.
Export Labels is commonly used in speech transcription or speech recognition research, after which the files can be manipulated in any application that accepts text files. Labels can also be modified after export for use as Cue Sheets for CD burning or as movie subtitles.
Export Multiple... Ctrl + Shift + L
This allows you to do multiple exports from Audacity with one command. Export either multiple files based on the multiple tracks in the project, or based on the labels in a single audio track. A great timesaver for splitting up long recordings into separate CD tracks, or archiving multiple working tracks. See the Tutorial - Copying tapes, LPs or MiniDiscs to CD for an example of how this is used.
Export the currently selected Note Track as a MIDI or Allegro file (which is like a MIDI file except that the notes information is stored as plain text). You can choose in the Import / Export Preferences whether to export Allegro files with times and durations represented in seconds (default) or in beats. Some applications that can play MIDI files may not be able to play Allegro files.
Only one Note Track can be exported at a time. The entire Note Track will be exported regardless of any selection made in the track. If the Note Track has been time shifted to start at a point other than zero, empty MIDI bars will be added at the start.
|To export an Allegro file the .gro file extension must be manually added to the end of the exported file name, except on Windows.|
