Using Audacity

  Dorkins 20:04 10 Jul 2008

I am learning to play a musical instrument and i would like to make a recording of myself whilst practicing so i can hear the tone etc. Have been using Audacity but when i make a recording and save it to my desktop and then click on it to play all i get is a lot of code? I am running a Linux distro and Firefox3.

Rather than simply saving to desktop once you have finished recording, select "file" then "export as wav". Once you have created a WAV file of your playing you can listen to it or burn to CD as a backing track etc.

There is also an option to export as MP3 but I didn't bother downloading the necessary additional software. Hope this works.
