10) Edit the track, by highlighting and deleting
bits you would like to remove by pressing the
delete key.






11) If the volume of the track is too low, add
the normalize effect by going to effect, and
clicking on normalize. This will increase the
volume of the file to a sensible level, without
allowing it to clip.

12) When you are satisfied with the Podcast
audio, you may export the track by going to
file, and clicking export. You want to export it
as a WAV file for the best quality, as it is a
lossless format and therefore does not overly-
compress the file.






13) Save the file in a relevant place with an
appropriate file name for easy finding.

Why isnt Dreamweaver working properly?

to the correct place. This is done by clicking
Manage Sites, name it something, choose the
