To copy your section of audio, press "Apple-C" on your keyboard
"Press Apple-C on your keyboard?" ...WTF?
I'm new to Apple...how do I "press Apple-C" ?
Does anyone know what that means?
I think it means press the apple key and c key simultaneously.
But which is the apple key...what does it look like?
The "Apple" key is the command key, so press command - c. It's the standard copy command.
On my older Apple keyboards, the command key had the Apple LOGO on it. My newer Apple keyboard has the word "command" on it instead.
The 'Apple key' is the 'Command' key.
Older keyboards looked like the photo in the link.
so, apple isn't the easiest to use? get a PC next time, loser!

I'm trying to edit an MP3 using Quicktime. Jesus, it's complicated.
The minute I try to do anything out of the ordinary on this thing it's like going to hell.
In Arkansas, they call that button the "squished bug."
I've never edited audio using Quicktime, so I don't know what issues you may be having.
Just FYI, there is a free, open source program called Audacity that I found easy to use when I had an audio project to put together a few years ago, and having no prior sound editing experience.
If you're just wanting to trim the beginning and/or end of an mp3, iTunes is easiest. You select the mp3 (or any other format recording in iTunes, for that matter), do "get info" (command-i) on it and then change the start and/or end time and then right click and choose "convert to mp3" and it makes another copy with the edits incorporated. If you don't have the option to convert to mp3, you need to go into iTunes preferences and change the import cd settings to mp3.
Sorry, after you change the start and/or end time, you can close the "get info" window and then right click the audio file in your library listing to get the submenu which should contain the command to convert to mp3 (if you've updated your import cd preferences to be mp3). Also you won't immediately see the start/end time settings in the "get info" window...the settings are on one of the tabs within that window. I'm not sure what tab...these instructions are from memory so don't take them absolutely literally. Just click around and you should be able to find everything.
Oh god, r11 here again. To accomplish a "right click" on a Mac, hold down the Control key and then click the mouse button. If you're a newbie, I'm guessing you probably didn't know that. Also, you can set the Magic Mouse to recognize a right click by setting it up that way in mouse settings.
Wow, R11..it worked. The new edited version appeared and I delete the old one.

I have now. I wish I'd done this before I downloaded 15,000 Cds yesterday. Can I convert the lot en masse?
I think I'm going to have to get some sort of tuition. Imovie was horrendously complicated and I hate using DL for tech advice.
