Audacity Development Team - (Open Source)
Audacity is a multi-track recorder able to handle full projects, and an audio editor.
Audacity is a free audio processing software that supports the following file formats: WAV, AIFF, OGG and MP3, applying many filters to sound: silence suppression, echo or add special effects, noise suppression, mixing, distortion, reverb, pitch bend / shift and more.
It can cut audio files, delete or add rests, apply fading in / out audio files and treat separately the left / right channels. The program offers unlimited undo number and also the possibility to convert the records and old tapes to digital media.
Thanks to the integrated editor, you also have the ability to copy, paste and mix sounds together to create multitrack projects.
- An official Intel Mac version is now available.
- Fixed bug in Generate Silence which caused it to apply to all tracks instead of just the selected ones.
- Mac OS X: audio device opening code has been rewritten. First, it is much more conservative about changing device settings; it will not change settings when you open the program or close the preferences dialog anymore, and it will not change the settings when you begin playback/recording if the current settings are adequate. When it does change the settings, it should work much better on devices such as the Griffin iMic, ART USB Phono Plus, and Ion iMX02 USB.
- Mac OS X: added new Audio I/O preference that lets you tell Audacity to never change any audio device settings.
- Newer libsndfile supports FLAC import and export
- Updated soundtouch to current version which is faster and better quality
- Modified configure script prefers system libraries to local copies to reduce compilation times and memory usage.
- Minor updates to help files.
- New or updated translations: Bulgarian (bg), Galician (gl), Traditional Chinese (zh_TW), Simplified Chinese (zh), Slovenian (sl), Swedish (sv), Bangladeshi (bn), Slovakian (sk), Romanian (ro), Lithuanian (lt), Welsh (cy), and Turkish (tr).
