If you have an audio file on your computer that you convert to a different format with Noteburner, you can then edit that converted audio file with Audacity. Noteburner works with audio applications such as Microsoft’s Windows Media Player and Apple’s iTunes. You can convert songs in your music library, which Noteburner saves to a virtual CD-RW disc instead of actually burning the converted songs. You can then open these converted songs with Audacity to start editing them.
Launch Noteburner on your computer.
Click the “Setting” button on the Noteburner application window. A dialog box will appear.
Click “Output Folder” and then click the folder on your computer where you want to save songs that you convert with Noteburner.
Click the “Output Format” pull-down menu and then click a format that you want to use to convert the audio file, such as “MP3” or “WAV.”
Launch an audio application on your computer, such as iTunes or Windows Media Player.
Make a new playlist and then drag songs from your application’s music library into the playlist.
Click the command to burn a disc. The CD burning settings window will appear.
Click the CD burner option to select “Noteburner.”
Click “Burn.” The audio files will convert according to the settings you made in Noteburner and copy to the virtual CD-RW drive in the location you specified for the Noteburner output folder.
Launch Audacity on your computer.
Click “Open” from Audacity’s menu.
Click the folder on your computer where you exported the song file from Noteburner, then click the file to select it and then click “Open” to open the song in Audacity. The song’s waveform will appear in the Audacity application window, ready for you to edit.
