In this show Ken, recalls hpr1771 :: Audacity: Label Tracks by Jon Kulp to add Labels to an large audio file.
- Tidy up the audio to the point where you are happy with it, but do not truncate silence.
- Find the first break in the audio and check how long it is. In my case it was 4 seconds.
- Select the entire track and select Analyze>Silence Finder
- Change Maximum duration of silence to just under the length of the break. In my case I set it to 3 seconds
- This will then create a series of labels on a new Label track
- Edit the names of each as desired.
- Select File > Export > Export Multiple
- Select Split Files based on Labels
- Name files using Label/Track Name

Automation is nice
Thanks for the shoutout, Ken. I love this clever use of the silence finder. I’ve never tried this but definitely will next time I’m transferring an LP. Nicely done!

2881 - Audacity: Split Album into Tracks
Thank you, Ken! Combined with youtube-dl, one can pretty much acquire every single piece of music one has ever wanted in a single night with this. You've sped up my workflow considerably. Also great for breaking podcasts into chunks, if like me, one has a car stereo with an incredibly slow fast-forward/rewind function.
