audio editor copy paste

Sep 21, 2012


If I record some audio, and then want to cut a piece out and paste it into another audio file, how can I do this. 
Whenever i open another audio file where I wish to insert a copied piece, the cut, copy, paste buttons are dimmed, as in the pic below. 

Simple I bet, but how do i paste a small piece into this file?

Thanks fellas, 

Yep I already use many audio editors and just wondered whether this feature was part of storyline. a pity, because it's a very basic function I think. But I'll keep using things like audacity and audition. I was just hoping to do as much inside storyline as possible.

No sweat, it's pretty great for what it does do rather than what it doesn't. 

Thanks for the replies.

Hey Emma,

Thank you for reaching out! 

You can import the file into the Audio Editor and place it into the middle of an existing file. You will want to be sure that the file you are importing is already cropped and saved to contain those 4 seconds you want to use. This guide should help when working with audio clips - Storyline 360: Editing Audio

I made a quick video for you showing the process of adding an audio file into the middle of an existing file: Cropping/Editing Audio Files.
