I did not add five seconds of silence to my audio track, is this an issue, and how do I add silence to the beginning of my script?

We recommend adding at least five seconds of silence to the beginning of a script; however, if you do not add silence, the script will still fire. Without adding the silence, you may hear a small blip at the beginning of the audio file as the Audio Box aligns.

For more information on adding silence to your script and other helpful audio formatting tips, please see our Audio Box User Guide and Audacity MP3 formatting video below.
