Cutting Audio

Cutting audio in multiple piece in a Kdenlive project with multiple audio tracks, videos and photos can create bad sounds in the audio - this happens rarely, but it is possible, especially if you cut in the middle or beginning of speaking. A possible solution is to edit the audio in Audacity such that no cutting is needed in Kdenlive.
