What is Audacity?

Audacity is a software that does not need an introduction if you are dealing in the audio and video editing. It is free and open source audio editing software that is available to download for Windows, Mac, Linux, as Source, Legacy Mac, and Legacy Windows systems. It is light editing tool which can be installed on the Windows system easily but for Linux such as Ubuntu and more using command line terminal, first, you need to add its PPA repo/ repository. Actually, Audacity doesn’t provide official PPA repo that’s why a third party Ubuntuhandbook.org has created an unofficial PPA for Audacity which we are going to use here that also works for the version of Linux Mint.
