05.2020 | 27/38 MB
Audacity is an open-source, cross-platform audio editor and recorder that aims to process the most popular audio formats, podcasts included. Audacity will not disappoint if you need a piece of software that can record live, convert tapes or cut and mix sounds.

- recording (from a microphone or mixer)
- import/export of WAV, AIFF, AU, FLAC, MP3 (via LAME encoder) Ogg Vorbis files
- advanced editing (cut, copy, paste, delete commands with unlimited "Undo" and "Redo," multitrack mixing)
- digital effects (change the pitch, remove background noises, alter frequencies, remove vocals, create voice-overs for podcasts, etc.) and plug-ins (support for LADSPA, Nyquist, VST Audio Unit, including VAMP analysis plug-ins).

Seamless setup and clean GUI
The installation process runs quite fast and does not pose any kind of problems, while the interface is pleasant and clean. It encompasses a menu bar, several buttons and a pane in which to view the waveform of any uploaded item.

It might take a while to get used to it, especially if you have never worked with a similar kind of product before. Nevertheless, some comprehensive Help contents are provided, which will aid you in getting around Audacity.

Extensions you can use and simple editing options
This utility features support for importing, processing and exporting WAV, FLAC, AIFF, AU and OGG Vorbis files. Bundled with an array of plugins and effects, this software can help you in regards to audio recording/playback, track mixing and spectrum analysis.

Audacity can record multiple channels simultaneously at high sample rates from microphones, USB or Firewire devices. Simple sound editing operations can be performed via cut, copy, paste and delete features, while mixing can be achieved from multiple clips, while the “Draw” function allows altering individual sample points.

Effects to tweak and use, and perform audio analysis
The rich list of effects includes noise processing, equalization, bass, high and low pass filters, as well as amplify, fade in and out, normalize, reverse, echo and phaser filters. Additional effects can be added to the program, as it supports plugins.

Last but not least, it can perform flawless audio analysis through an algorithm based on the Fourier transformation. Frequencies can be visualized through spectrogram views, while the Plot Spectrum allows users to analyze frequencies.

Bottom line
All in all, Audacity impresses through its plethora of features combined with ease of use and accessibility. The processing speed is decent, to say the least and the results are of superior audio quality.

Release notes :

It has some nice features, but is rather buggy with quite a lot /7-9, in my case/ of plugins (won't load, stutters, will play but won't render, or won't display graphic interface...).
I expected more in this version, but the problems remain the same.

audacity is not great.. not sure why so many people love it. i think wavepad or ocenaudio are both way better. waveosaur is also not bad but it hasn't been updated in a while.
make music, not walls.

It's great to cleaning up samples (vocals out of movies, rap, or trying to get certain percussionloops clean(er))... if you are in to that kind of thing...

Agree completely upon WavePad, it is fast, efficient and reliable, has a lot of features. Pity you can not sort plugins by A-Z and you must first exit the plugin window if you want to select anything on the wave graph. Also leaves temporary *.aud files behind, you must delete manually.

Audacity also has problems with recording when using ASIO drivers.

Audacity 2.4.0 Release (paused)
Posted on May 16, 2020 by James Crook

We’ve temporarily re-instated the 2.3.3 release for downloads whilst we investigate a serious bug that affects 2.4.0 on Windows Mac and Linux. The bug causes loss/corruption of audio. Currently we think the bug happens when you have two projects open…
We are a lot in my head, but it's me the boss.

Audacity 2.4.1 Released
Posted on May 21, 2020 by James Crook

We’re pleased to announce release of Audacity 2.4.1 which replaces all previous versions for Windows, macOS and Linux. The 2.4.0 Multi-project bug: Audacity 2.4.1 fixes a serious bug in the briefly available Audacity 2.4.0. With 2.4.0 we blundered. In 2.4.0…

I have to change the name from Audacity to Audacity 2.4.0 for it to work. Very strange.
And then i uninstall it after I found out Amadeus Pro is pretty good.
