Thread-topic: Audacity - New Features

If you haven’t already, you might want to check out the latest version of Audacity, 2.1.3. It has some cool new features, will run on Windows, Mac and Linux, and is open-source. Here are some of the new features:


·         Audacity 2.1.3 fully supports Windows 10 (thanks to an upgrade of the PortAudio library) and on MacOS has some previously missing support for Magic Mouse/Trackpad (thanks to Paul Licameli).

·         New Distortion effect, Rhythm Track (was called Click Track) and Sample Data Import (thanks to Steve Daulton). Also effects are no longer grayed-out when in pause.

·         New scrub ruler and ‘pinned’ option so the waveform moves and the recording/playing head stays still. (Paul)

·         New features in Timer Record (Mark Young & Steve)

·         On Mac, audacity.app is now added to /Applications/ directly rather than adding a folder there.

·         64 bugs/annoyances in 2.1.2 fixed of which 15 were long-standing issues. Also lots done (Paul again) to systematically deal with memory leaks.
