To Save an Audio File or a Recording

You can save an existing audio file or a new recording in AU, AIFF, or WAV format.

  1. Choose Save As from the File menu or hold down the Control key and press ``a'' with the mouse cursor over the Audio main window.

    The Audio - Save As dialog box will be displayed.

  2. Specify the folder in which you want to save the file.

    Change to a different folder, if you wish. Press Return or click Update to update the folder location.

  3. Choose a format (AU, WAV, or AIFF) from the Audio Format menu.

    AU, which is the default, is Sun audio format. WAV is Microsoft PC format. AIFF is Macintosh audio format.

  4. Type a name in the Enter file name field.

    Audio files are usually named with .au, .wav, or .aiff suffixes for easy identification. To overwrite an existing file, select the file in the Files list.

  5. Click OK to save the audio file or recording.
