Transform click track into kick drum sound

Divide 60 by the BPM of your click track to get the duration of the drum beat. For example, if your click track is 101 BPM, 60/101 = 0.594059406.

Create a new audio track and select it.

Select Generate|Risset Drum... and enter the duration of the drum beat in the Decay field. For example, enter 0.594059406 for a 101 BPM Risset Drum beat. this generates ONE drum beat.

Select Effect|Repeat. In the "Number of times to repeat:" field enter how many beats you want, and the "New selection length: value will show the time duration of the rack after the Repeat function.

Remove all the envelope control points from a track


For some tracks with very discrete signal patterns (like a drum machine), Audacity will automatically apply control points to the track. It can be very time-consuming to delete all of those control points, so here's how to delete all of the control points for a track at once:

1. Select the entire track. Select Edit|Copy or Ctrl-C to copy the track to the clipboard.

2. Select File|New to open another instance of Audacity.

3. Select Tracks|Add New|Audio Track.

4: Select Edit|Paste or Ctrl-V.

5: Select Project|Quick Mix (version 1.2) or Tracks|Mix and Render (version 1.3). Audacity will render the track without control points.

6. Select the new track. Select Edit|Copy or Ctrl-C to copy the track to the clipboard.

7: Return to the other instance of Audacity with your open project.

8: Select Tracks|Add New|Audio Track.

9: Select the new track.

10. Select Edit|Copy or Ctrl-C to copy the audio from the clipboard to the new track. Your project now has two versions of the track: the old track with the control points and a new version of the track with no control points.
