Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need:
A computer capable of running Audacity (Linux, Windows, or Mac)


Audacity


Audio Selection Sequencer 2 Audacity Plug-in (Download from http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Download_Nyquist_Plug-ins)


A set of drum sounds (Included as ZIP file with this Instructable)
<p>How do you open the kit sounds in audacity?</p>
<p>You first need to extract the .wav files from the .zip file. Then to import a wave file into Audacity run File--&gt;Import--&gt;Audio and select the drum sample which you wish to use. Choose the make a copy (safest) option.</p>
<p>Like a lot of people you might think a professional studio, thousands of dollars&rsquo; worth of equipment and years of studying is required, Well that may have been true some years ago but with the advancements in technology its now possible to make studio quality beats on your PC or MAC from the comfort of your own home, you can download from here<br><a href="http://healthandrich.com/drum" rel="nofollow">http://healthandrich.com/drum</a></p>
<p>I'm confused. I'm no expert on this sort of stuff, but can you be more specific with this section? I have windows, and the part where you say to &quot;copy seq2.zip into C:/Program Files......&quot; is throwing me off big time. Haven't got to where I can see Audio Sequencer 2 on Audacity yet. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.</p><p>Make sure Audacity is installed. Then extract <em>seq2.zip</em> which you have downloaded from (<a href="http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Download_Nyquist_Plug-ins" rel="nofollow">http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Download_Nyquist_Plug-ins</a>) and copy <em>seq2.ny</em> into <em>/usr/share/audacity/plug-ins/ </em>if you use Linux<br> <br><strong>OR</strong><br> <br><em>C:/Program Files/Audacity/Plug-Ins</em> if you use Windows<br> <br><br> <br>Extract <em>17-29_TicTacShutUp_Studio_Drums_1.zip</em> . It does not matter where the drum sound files are placed as long as you can remember where they are.</p>
<p>thanks....is quite useful.....</p>
<p>Okay, <em>17-29_TicTacShutUp_Studio_Drums_1.zip</em> contains the .wav files for the drum beats. Once this zip file is extracted, the wav files can be imported into audacity and sequenced. <em>seq2.ny</em> must be placed in the audacity plugins directory. <em>C:/Program Files/Audacity/Plug-Ins .</em>Auda<em>city</em> will automatically load these plugins on startup<em>.</em><a href="http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Download_Nyquist_Plug-ins" rel="nofollow">http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Download_Nyquist_Plug-ins</a><em> a</em>lso suggests that these plugins can be placed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity. on 64-bit Windows. So, just copy and paste seq2.ny into that directory.</p>

<p>does this work on Windows 8?</p>
Thanks for showing me this. I'm sometimes asked about the easiest and cheapest way to track. I tell them to Google Audacity. I'll mention this feature next time.
You're welcome.
