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.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.1.3
  • Audacity 2.1.3 now properly supports Windows 10 (thanks to an upgrade of the PortAudio library) and on MacOS has some previously missing support for Magic Mouse/Trackpad (thanks to Paul Licameli).
  • New Distortion effect, Rhythm Track (was called Click Track) and Sample Data Import (thanks to Steve Daulton). Also effects are no longer grayed-out when in pause.
  • New scrub ruler and ‘pinned’ option so the waveform moves and the recording/playing head stays still. (Paul)
  • New features in Timer Record (Mark Young & Steve)
  • On Mac, audacity.app is now added to /Applications/ directly rather than adding a folder there.
  • 64 bugs/annoyances in 2.1.2 fixed of which 15 were long-standing issues. Also lots done (Paul again) to systematically deal with memory leaks.
  • Audacity 2.1.3 is the last version that will officially support Windows XP.
