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.

I have used Sound Studio for years, but rather than spend $40 to upgrade I decided to check out Audacity. It does everything Sound Studio does with a clean intuitive interface.

Haven't been able to DL for a couple days now, Cloud Flare error message. I hope it's not been abandoned.

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!
