Audacity is a name every music enthusiast knows as the boldest and most daring open-source Audio editor on the market. With over 100 million downloads, it is extremely popular. So basically, if you are into music but never heard of Audacity, shame on you! But at the same time, you are forgiven for your wrongfulness with a chance to redeem yourself by downloading the brand new update of this FREE multi-purpose audio tool!
Just released, version 3.0.0 of Audacity is a major update that offers a few added perks, but is mainly focused on a file-type change for saved projects that now saves all data in one single file. In the past, projects used multiple split files, with a few downsides for both user and developer. That is fixed now, as well as no less than 160 bug fixes, a few extra tweaks like macro import/export functionality, and a newly added Gate Effect and Analyzer.
Of course, as an open-source solution, Audacity will be free until the plugin is no more. This does not mean though that it doesn’t pack a punch. Because aside from live and digitized recording, import/export in a wide range of formats, extensive audio editing and analysis capabilities, Audacity also gives you excellent audio quality of up to 32bit with high-quality resampling and dithering, as well as support for several plugin-types and the ability to write your own plugins with Nyquist, and high UI accessibility with a large range of keyboard shortcuts. These are just the main featurettes though, with a lot more hiding under the hood.
For those longing for more information about this Swiss Audio-knife, an extensive online Manual is available, but it seems boldness is absolutely FREE, so we suggest that you just be daring and pick up some ‘Audacity’ to embolden your sonic range!
The New Update 3.0.0 of Audacity is FREE forever!
