Audacity 1.2.5

Entry 302 posted in: 1. General Mish Mash

Another one of those Sourceforge beauties is the free digital audio editor Audacity. One of my many Unfinished Projects consists of a remix project between an ambient British collective and one of those dinosaurs of rock. Audacity is the program I made it with and, no, the results are for my MP3-player alone and not free for download. Audacity is, of course, free and can be downloaded from Sourceforge if that page is not down as it is now, the moment I write this.

Some of Audacity's features include (I pinched this from Wikipedia):

  • Importing and exporting WAV, MP3 (via the LAME MP3 Encoder, downloaded separately), Ogg Vorbis, and other file formats
  • Recording and playing sounds
  • Editing via Cut, Copy, Paste (with unlimited Undo)
  • Multi-track mixing
  • Digital effects and effect plug-ins. Additional effects can be written with Nyquist
  • Amplitude envelope editing
  • Noise removal
  • Support for multichannel modes with sampling rates up to 96 kHz with 24 bits per sample
  • High ease of use
  • Large array of plug-ins available

And for the first time in over year or so, the Audacity team has now updated their product, so why don't you give it a go and meddle around with it...
