Difference between project files (*.aup) and export files (*.wav or =
*.MP3) is essential.
Project files don't incorporate audio data.They are something like =
filmscript : indicating what to do with
the medias (somthing like : "the sound called XXXXXXX is cut afterXXX
seconds and it is reduced to XX % of his original volume, etc...") BUT =
don't incorporate medias. That's why they are small files, when medias =
files are big.
Then, if you directly record sound, you MUST export it as wav/MP3. You =
also could save the project in order to continue your editing work (but =
no necessary if the work is done).
If you use previously recorded files (downloaded) and transform them =
with audacity, you must export them after in their new form.
