Editors' Review

+

Audacity provides you with a full set of tools that you can use to edit audio files and add effects through a clear and accessible interface. Users of all experience levels will benefit from this app's intuitive interface and nice list of features.

Pros

Excellent resources: Despite the clarity of the interface, it can take some time to learn your way around this program. Fortunately, the app comes with links to a large collection of different types of resources to help you learn how to use all of its features. There is a Quick Help Guide, a full Manual, a Wiki, and user Forums where you can ask questions and get feedback from other users. All online resources for this app are searchable as well, so you can find what you're looking for fast.

Lots of effects: The list of effects you can use on your audio files through this program is long and comprehensive. It includes items like Amplify, Auto Duck, Compressor, Hard Limiter, Leveler, and many more. You can also record your own voice directly through the app to add into an existing recording.

Cons

Additional downloads: You can import and export files in multiple formats through this app. But in order to access the full range of file format options, you have to download and install several additional programs.

Bottom Line

Audacity is a versatile and comprehensive audio editing program. It runs smoothly, and the number of Help resources it comes with makes it a good choice for users of all experience levels. It is also completely free to download and use.

"Good-to-be-True software!"

March 07, 2016  |  By Emmanuel R. Savage

2016-03-07 22:49:23  |  By Emmanuel R. Savage

 |  Version: Audacity 2.1.2

Pros

Very easy to use out of the box. A place to get your feet wet in the voiceover world
if not to learn more serious recording. It's a very straight interface, and gets better
as you learn the functions.

Cons

Later on you'll start getting a bigger bat to swing with as you start getting industry
standard equipment. But this doesn't mean Audacity can't be a part of the recording
process as you are familiar with it's functions and still provides solid software punch

Summary

If you are having trouble understanding Audacity, think about how a tape recorder functions and perhaps you'll have the idea how basically Audacity works....
