Developer's description:

Audacity is a free, easy-to-use audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. You can use Audacity to:

* Record live audio.
* Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs.
* Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV or AIFF sound files.
* Cut, copy, splice or mix sounds together.
* Change the speed or pitch of a recording.

Audacity is free software, developed by a group of volunteers and distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Free software is not just free of cost (like "free beer"). It is free as in freedom (like "free speech"). Free software gives you the freedom to use a program, study how it works, improve it and share it with others. For more information, visit the Free Software Foundation.

Audacity supports uncompressed audio standards such as WAV and AIFF in addition to OGG and MP3 files. A full complement of basic effects such as reverb, delay, and compression are included. Virtual Studio Technology (VST), Linux Audio Developers Simple Plugin Architecture (LAPSDA), and Nyquist plug-ins also are available if you're looking to expand. Another eye-catching feature is the Beat Analyzer, which helps you peg the beats per minute of a phrase.

Features:

* Many effects significantly improved, especially Equalization, Noise Removal and Normalize. Vocal Remover now included plus GVerb on Windows and Mac. VAMP analysis plug-ins now supported.
* Improved label tracks with Sync-Lock Tracks feature in the Tracks Menu. Multiple clips per track. Tracks and selections can be fully manipulated using the keyboard. Many more keyboard shortcuts.
* New Device Toolbar to manage inputs and outputs. Timer Record feature. New Mixer Board view with per-track VU meters.
* Automatic Crash Recovery in the event of abnormal program termination.
* Fast "On-Demand" import of WAV/AIFF files if read directly from source. FLAC now fully supported. Added support for optional FFmpeg library for import/export of AC3/M4A/WMA and import of audio from video files.

Interface

* Selection Toolbar: a value for the previous whole second displayed if the value was close to a whole second.
* Finding zero crossings could cause the selection to expand into white space at either side of the clip.
* Clips did not drag to another track if mouse was over a selection.
* Mixer Board: Rendering four tracks resulted in a redundant Track Strip followed by a crash.

Imports, Exports and Files

* Exporting to WAV or AIFF led to a "Libsndfile says" error or corrupted output due to order of metadata in imported files.
* (Mac) Fixed crashes importing MP3 files on PPC machines.
* (Linux Ubuntu) .Aup files could not be associated with Audacity (they opened in the web browser instead).

Effects and Analysis

* Normalize: Fixed issues where normalization could be to wrong value if applied with DC offset correction, or if applied to "read-directly" WAV and AIFF files before On-Demand completed.
* Sliding Time Scale: fixed an audible discontinuity at the beginning of the processed selection; fixed a serious quality problem on Linux 64-bit.

Other miscellaneous bug fixes

* including fix to prevent zooming with mouse wheel or ball scrolling the content off-screen.

Version Change log
Audacity for Windows 2.4.2 Jun 26, 2020 Improvements:
Audacity now uses 'aup3' format, with all audio in one file, rather than
The previous 'pile of file' format. We are using the SQLite library to
Manageis the contents of this file. Too many users were previously getting
Caught out by copying part of the project only, when backing up.
'Backup Project' command replaces 'Save Lossless Copy of Project' and 'Save
Compressed Copy of Project'
Added Corsican and Marathi languages.
'Label Sounds' replaces 'Sound Finder' and 'Silence Finder'.
Added Import and Export of Macros.
Added Attack, Hold and Delay times to Noise Gate.
Added Multi-View option to Track Preferences
Added hidden (bindable to shortcuts) commands for repeating last generator,
Analyzer or tool. Previously only most recent effect could be repeated.
Upgraded Nyquist to 3.16
Bug Fixes:
Over 160 bugs in 2.4.2 fixed, including:
208 - Some effects (including equalization effects) delete Envelope Control
Points, or do not move them when timeline changes
Audacity for Windows 2.3.3 Nov 25, 2019 Changes since version 2.3.2:
Equalization effect now split into two effects, Filter Curve and Graphic EQ
Presets (using manage button) now active/working
Can now have two points at same frequency for steep steps
Audacity for Windows 2.3.2 May 14, 2019 Over 20 bugs fixed, and a few small improvements/changes to features (since 2.3.0):
That annoying message from Apple saying: “32-bit support will be going the way of the dodo”, no longer shows when you install Audacity on Mac. The new 64-bit Audacity works with 64-bit libraries. To use FFmpeg or MP3 libraries with 64-bit Audacity, you will need to download the updated 64-bit versions.
On Windows, you may find that recording is disabled until you change Windows permissions for the microphone! That’s a security feature introduced by Windows. This affects all versions of Audacity, and affects many other audio programs.
