How to extend the audio clip?

I added 3 mins audio file in Shotcut and was trying to extend it more than 3 mins, but it didn’t work.
How to extend it?

No option to extend an audio file beyond its original length.

A few options, but probably not what you’re looking for.

  • Change the audio file’s speed in Properties. This will extend or shorten depending upon direction.
  • Place the same audio file on the Timeline next to the first one.

If you don’t need to extend the audio clip too much, Hudson’s suggestion might work well if you also enabled Pitch Compensation in Properties

Slowing a 3 minute song to 0.9000X will add about 16 seconds to the length of the clip.
Slowing it to 0.8500X will add about 30 seconds


No, I don’t wanna make it slow down. I just copied and pasted.
But this tip will be helpful in the future.
