Step 4: Save the recording as audio file
You will see a preview window with four options. Open the Save to menu at the lower part of the interface, click More presets, than expand the central list and choose one of the audio formats which are at the end of the list and marked as (Audio only). Once you’ve chosen the desirable format, click Save.
Step 5: Cut or split the recorded audio
When the audio file is created, you can edit it within Movavi Video Editor which is a part of the Screen Capture Studio package. Run Movavi Video Editor from your Start menu in Windows, click Open Media File on the left side of the interface, browse your folders to select the file, then drag and drop it to the Audio track on a timeline. Then move the the roller to the moment you want to cut the file and click the scissors icon to split the recording.
