Exploring Audacity through webcasts October 4, 2010

Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Screen casts.

The program is very popular, and incredibly versatile – like the swiss army knife of the audio world. This versatility leads some people to use it as a DAW (digital audio workstation) replacement. Are you a fan of Audacity? How far have you been able to take it?

Audacity isn’t a digital audio workstation. It’s an audio editor that’s cross-platform (including Windows, Mac and Linux), open source, and free of charge.

The creator of Audacity, Dominic Mazzoni, is now an employee of Google. He initially created Audacity as a grad student, and remains very involved in the project.

The Audacity website lists the programs full set of features, which include recording, import and export (making it useful for conversion between many audio formats), multi-track editing, effects, sound quality, support for plug-ins (including VST and LADSPA), and spectrographic analysis.
