How to Make a Clean Version of Any Song

Sometimes a song just isn’t appropriate to play on your radio show or in your classroom due to inappropriate language.

Here is a quick and easy way to make a clean version of any song.

The first thing you need to do is download and install Audacity. It is a free sound recording program that is quite versatile and very easy to use. I have used it to record mixsets for my radio show and all of my recent mixtapes. I have even used it in the classroom to record Reader’s Theatre and Radio Plays.

You will first need to open the MP3 file in Audacity. If you don’t know how to do this, look at this past tutorial I made that will walk you through it.

Once the track is loaded into Audacity, you simply need to highlight the offensive word using Audacity  and then set it to play in reverse. Here’s how . . .

I hope you have found this tip useful.

You don’t need to be a superstar DJ to manipulate audio files or edit tracks any longer.
