How can users mix audio tracks using Audacity?

Users can mix multiple Audacity tracks that play simultaneously into a single track. Audacity mixes them automatically during exporting or playing and can also mix multiple tracks into one within their project. You can mix tracks for many reasons such as mixing speech with background music to create a podcast, etc. Although concatenating songs doesn’t involve mixing, in order to fade songs into each other, mixing is essential.

You can follow either of the two steps to mix a soundtrack:

  1.  You can go to Tracks > Mix > Mix and Render to replace the original songs with the mixed tracks
  2. Follow the other tutorial – Tracks > Mix > Mix and Render to New Track.

The latter allows mixed tracks to be added to the project while preserving the original ones. In Audacity, mixing is automatic. You just need to put the audio into two separate tracks. You can either play for listening to the result and then export it in the form of an audio file in formats like MP3 or WAV. You can also burn the result into an audio CD. After the audio is mixed, it becomes impossible to separate the original parts again.
