Audacity

2.3.2.014 May 2019

Audio recording, editing and mixing tool.

Overview

Audacity is a free audio recorder/editor/mixer. You can record sounds, play sounds, import and export WAV, AIFF, and MP3 files, and more. Use it to edit your sounds using Cut, Copy and Paste (with unlimited Undo), mix tracks together, or apply effects to your recordings. It also has a built-in amplitude envelope editor, a customizable spectrogram mode, and a frequency analysis window for audio analysis applications. Built-in effects include Bass Boost, Wahwah, and Noise Removal, and it also supports VST plug-in effects.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

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.
