FreeFile Review – Audacity

Audacity is a Swiss Army knife for audio. It has been my go-to audio program for years. It can perform nearly any sound editing task, except ripping tracks from CDs. An abundance of features results in a rather cluttered-looking, slightly confusing interface. Installation is a little bit unusual – an mp3 encoder may, or may not need to be downloaded and installed after the main program is installed. This is not a major issue and Audacity provides very good instructions for doing this. Audacity is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Recording may be Audacity’s most useful ability. It will record any sound that your PC can play. Simply click the Record button, the Stop button and then export the recording to your format of choice (mp3, WAV, AIFF, Ogg and a few others). Editing can be basic, such as changing the volume or trimming dead space, or it can get quite advanced with a ton of included filters and effects (change tempo or speed, equalization, click removal, fade in, fade out, etc.).

What I like about Audacity –

Features – Audacity does it all(almost).

Performance – Audacity works quickly and always produces quality audio.

Recording – Simple to use recorder.

The only negative with Audacity is its learning curve. Some things are counter intuitive, but excellent Help documentation is provided. A new user may get frustrated initially. If a person spends a little time learning the program, excellent results are easily obtained.

– – The Bottom Line – –

There is no better free audio editor. Period.
