Just an update -- I gave Audacity yet ANOTHER spin with this latest version, and guess what. My Dec 2 2009 review stands. It's certainly better than nothing, and if you can deal with the interface and poorly-designed layout/functionality, great. If you need something to edit audio with every once in a blue moon and don't want to fire up Garageband (which is a pretty awful audio editor too), this will certainly do the trick. It's *capability* is pretty good. Its *execution* is pretty poor. (to be fair, I have the same sentiment about OpenOffice compared to iWork/MS Office -- just so you know where I'm coming from)

Love Audacity. With a paucity of sound editing/mixing apps I love Audacity for its comprehensive toolkit and ease of use. Unfortunately the latest version screws up the menu bar on any open audio file, I am running High Sierra OS.

There is no mention of any release 2.3.x on the Audacity home site. Is this a real release? MU should delist this until it is confirmed.

Scion777, I scouted around a bit. From what I can tell, 2.3.0.0 is actually an alpha build. Although it is not found anywhere on the official Audacity website, it is also found on this page:

...and it says on their site, "Mac OS X/macOS 10.6 and later. with Partial support for Sierra." And it goes to a blank page. Odd.

Use it almost exclusively for changing tempo of my backing tracks, and as such, it performs superbly, being the quickest and fuss-free way of doing this I know!
