To burn your work to an audio CD for standalone CD players, first export it as WAV or AIFF.

The exported WAV or AIFF file should be:

  • stereo
  • 44100 Hz
  • 16-bit chosen using the "Format" menu

all using File > Export Audio

These are Audacity's default settings, so normally you will not need to change these before exporting.

Burn the exported file to an "audio CD" - not a "data CD" or "MP3 CD" - with a CD burning application like Apple Music/iTunes or Windows Media Player.
