    1. We do the recordings through Skype, editing in Audacity. The process is a bit convoluted, as we’ve added some additional steps recently to improve sound levels (using Auphonic, I think?). Tysen will have to jump in here to provide some more info.

      We are both PC.

      1. Oh, you’re already using Audacity. That simplifies things. It might help to use the Truncate Silence feature under Effect>Truncate Silence. Set the boxes to -30dB, 1 second, Truncate Detected Silence, and 1 second. This will find all patches of dead air and trim them down to 1 second long. Presto, no more awkward pauses! \o/
