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.

This editor has some useful features, but is constantly pretty buggy with quite a lot of plugins. Being so version after version, I started to believe that the developers do not intend to do anything about it, at least in foreseeable future.

Are you referring to its bundled / optional extra plugins, or everything once it's loaded having scanned your VST library?
Huge Thanks to all hard working teams, suppliers, admin, mods & members for their work, efforts & input!
Patience, respect, gratitude & appreciation... always ;)

Zynaptiq UN series (stutter), All Thimeo products (can't load or hang/crash), Sonible (stutter or occasional peaks), some Brainworx and Softube (won't start). Some will play, but not render (like Fielding), etc.

That sounds annoying :-/ I can't say I load that many VST plugins into a wave editor. I do use them for simple things but I mostly just use an editor to tidy up the audio (e.g. noise reduction, compression, normalization, fades, simple sfx, etc) with offline processing. If I want to do anything more fancy, once prepared, I'll bring it into a DAW and shower it with real-time plug-ins galore, where I can also automate them and render if needed. I suppose I also tend to use Audacity for more simple things and SoundForge for more detailed or complex things. Have you ever tried out any of the additional Nyquist or LADSPA offerings?
