How will you handle mistakes, Tricia? I normally make a couple of clicks and then carry on.
But if we all do different styles of marking mistakes, it might make the editing more difficult for you.
And you need to receive the unedited audio from all the players, or aligning it would become a 'mare.

Do what you want to do, or are used to doing, and send me the unedited file. Audacity has a feature in which you can open all the tracks, and the change you make to one track (such as deleting) will also delete that portion of all the others, so everything stays in alignment.

DON'T Punch and Roll, though! :lol: For obvious reasons.

I edit my own files the old-fashioned (slow) way of listening to the whole thing, anyway, so I'm used to it. :)

TriciaG, don't trouble yourself to make a lengthy reply. I'm confused about your proposed project. I thought you'd be recording a live performance on Zoom. (Just wondering if there is a place for me in the project, though I'm no actor.)
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Zoom's audio recording isn't good quality, so we're doing it "live" but recording it individually and sending in the files so I can combine the better quality ones.

The project keeps evolving. :)

Note sure my mind is around all of these, but if I have clear instructions on how all this is going to work, I'm up for Thwaites.

Adrian, I'm afraid I'm not feeling well today and most likely will not be able to attend our scheduled Zoom meeting. I apologize for this. If I'm up to it, I will drop in to say hello and perhaps contribute my little bit to the discussion.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Alas, I will not be able to attend. My brother is in a skilled nursing hospital now after tracheotomy surgery, and now my sister in law fell and broke her hip 2 days ago. She is coming out of hip replacement surgery in a few minutes and I must be there to greet her in recovery and talk to doctors, etc, then break the news to him! I'm the only family in town. Sorry Adrian. Be sure to press the "record" button and upload it somewhere so I can watch and laugh with you all later. :D

Wow Michele, you are indeed being hit with a lot to take care of. I hope everyone recovers quickly and completely. apparently you are indeed the designated nurse in your family now. We will miss your scintillating comments and ideas. See you in two weeks but take care of yourself; if you go down that would be terrible.
