Audacity 3.0.0 new version 2021– Full review

 


Audacity 

Audacity is software that enables the users to both records and edits audio clips free of cost. The interface of Audacity is simple and very user-friendly. It also offers cross-platform compatibility and supports multiple plugins and libraries for enhanced functionality. It can run smoothly on Windows, Apple macOS, and Linux operating systems.

The editor can import and export WAV and MP3 files using LAME MP3 encoder and you can also work with FLAC, OGG formats. If you wish, you can record sound from a microphone or any other source which is connected to the line output. Audacity can record and listen to existing audio tracks at the same time, when recording you can use up to 16 channels, but for this you need to have a multi-channel card accordingly. You can use the ready-made effects, benefiting from their huge number, you can also add effects editor separately.

Audacity has an indicator for both recording and playback, and you can adjust the tempo parameters with pitch, if there is noise on the track, you can dampen it. If you want, you can play many tracks at once. If you need to connect multiple tracks of different quality, it is also possible that they will automatically adjust to the same parameters. You can save all your results in the desired format and quality.

The interface of Audacity has very attractive, nothing superfluous will be installed in system, it will not be difficult to deal with all chips, it is possible to add tracks by transfer in the main window, in general I like the program, it is not necessary to pay for it, and functions a huge quantity. I can recommend Audacity to everyone, of course, unless you are a super professional and you don’t need something like Sound Forge. Look carefully at the screenshots before you decide to download the program, in general, you can draw conclusions from them, enjoy the use!
