Enabling music view

Setting up for music workflows

You can enable a more musical view in Audacity as follows:
  1. 1.
    Right-click the Timeline Ruler and select Beats and Measures.
  2. 2.
    In the Time widget, select beats, or for more subdivisions, beats and 16th.
  3. 3.
    Enable Snapping, and set the snapping interval to a musical option (eg 1/4, 1/8 or 1/16).
Once you have enabled all of them, your Audacity may look something like this:
Audacity with the timeline ruler set to Beats & Measures, Time Signature Toolbar enabled, snapping to 16th notes, and the Time and Selection toolbars set to beats, bars and ticks. Also visible: The realtime effects sidebar
