I’ve been struggeling with this all morning: I’d like to trim silence parts in Garageband.
I’m a teacher, and I’m currently marking essays. I thought I’d do something different today, so instead of typing my comments or writing on my iPad, I’ve decided to speak my comments while I read the essay. I think I might be saving som time doing it this way - when I get the hang of it.
So here’s my current workflow:
I have the student’s document on one side of my screen, and Garageband on the other. Then I start a recording and speak my comments. So far, so good.
So here’s my problem:
When I finish reading and speaking I have an audio file that lasts about 20 minutes, but I only speak half that time - in sections. So there are a lot of gaps with silence. I’d like to trim them without having to select them individually and deleting them and re-arranging the spoken bits manually.
Is there a way of getting Garageband to do that?
I’m doing it on my Mac right now, but a solution on iOS Garageband would also be fine.
I don’t want to pay for Ferrite (which has a feature that does exactly that) just yet because it’s the first time, I’m marking essays this way, and I don’t know if the students find it even remotely useful.
