Crashes immediately when importing a larger file. Better rating when no crashes anymore.

This is one of the most useful free applications I know of. Provides everything I need for editing audio. (Although I can't speak for the Lion version that some people seem to be complaining about).

I really don't understand the people who complain about the interface. I can only assume that either they haven't read the documentation, which - unlike most free software - is thorough and clear, or else they are obsessed with things looking "Mac-like" in which case I have to say - get over it! It's only "skin deep" you know! It's a tool not a decoration, and I know of nothing better for editing audio.

Based on RAZZ's review below, I downloaded this app and used it to extract a chapter from a spoken book.

Damn, that was easy! I know nothing about working with sound files but even without reading the instructions (are there any? I didn't actually look), I had the job done in 30 seconds, no kidding.

Five stars from me because I can't give six.

This program is fast to learn, easy to use and fun! I recommend it to the 90% of everyone who wants to edit audio. The other 10% are welcome to buy other packages for whatever reason they feel it necessary. Thank you Dominic!!!

I have always preferred Bias Peak Pro for a two track editor / DAW, but is no longer being developed. However, this program does a better job than many of it's counterparts that charge quite hefty sums. Thanks so much to the developers for bringing us this fantastically versatile piece of software, and please do keep up the good work!!

Unfortunately Audacity just jumps in the dock in both OS X 10.6.8 and OS X 10.7.4 on 3 different machines. This is have been the experience of more people than myself.

Also I had to use sudo ditto to install as the permissions on the dmg seem faulty.

I selected Ocenaudio instead, currently free in beta.

Been using it for years, but I must agree that the interface is absolutely horrible and I hate using it. Looking around for a better alternative.

A free audio editor so I can not complain. It kinda works but the userinterface is so ugly, unintuitive and windows-a-like I truly hate using it. Screen updating is terrible slow on my Macbook Retina i7 when zooming into a wav, plugin support is buggy and scrashes a lot with high end VST plugins.

If you are serious about editing audio on Mac OSX I can highly recommend Triumph.
