Using Stand Alone Sony Soloist

Soloist allows instructors to enter comments on student's recordings much like putting a comment in the margin of a student's paper. This requires a mic on the computer.

  • Open and play a student's audio file
  • RIGHT click on the record button
  • Using the computer's mic make your comments
  • When you're done click stop then play to start playing the student's recording just after your comment
  • Save the file as the same name or a different name
