Recording Music


I am by far behind the rest of the world when it comes to doing stuff with audio. I have a CD for which I would like to take a small sampling of each song and create a new CD. Sort of like a movie trailer which only shows a few scenes.

I do not even know where to begin. Is there software that comes with OSX (I am using 10.5.8) that I can use to create a sampler of songs? I'd like to take a 40 minute CD and make a 5 minute CD out of it.

Not sure of the "easy" way, but you could import the cd to itunes (make sure it's mp3 format or you get AAC which is a DRM format; no editing I think) and then pull those mp3 tracks out and edit in Audacity (free app online).

Requires some labor, but should get you there.
