I first got it a while ago and just had some fun editing and
distorting my music. That was all well and good, but I really started
to appreciate your program when I had to make a 30minute radio show
for a class project. Thanks to your program we could easily edit, and
fix up any mistakes. It sounds like a simple task, but it sure beat
everybody else that had to use Windows Sound Recorder. I have a lot of
respect for you devs for creating such a powerful program, and doing
it for free.
Whenever someone asks me a good audio program I tell them that the best fre=
program (and better than alot of paid programs) is AUDACITY. My friends all
have it on their computers, and we use it to record audio for our movie
projects, we use it to record soundbytes from DVDs using the Wave Out
Mix/What U Hear feature, we recorded our 8 hour radio marathon onto audacit=
and it was lossless and easily editable.
Keep up the fantastic work!

I've been using your software off and on for a few years now. It is
amazing and thank you so much for all the time and effort that you have
put into the software.
I don't know where to make a feature request, so if this is not the best
place for this please don't shoot me.
I use Audacity to take live recorded wav files and fix them up a bit
before converting to MP3/Ogg for later CD creation. The one feature
that I cry about not having in Audacity would be a method to:
1: Define a length of time and an Absolute signal strength value
2: Have Audacity automatically process the file and split into separate
3: (optimally) have the option to do the split and save as... option
When I record an hour+ long live show, there could be 15-20 tracks and
while I can manually manipulate the large wav file into what I would
need for a multi track CD recording, it's a pain in the butt.
This would also be helpful for people that are transferring LPs to
I know there are some other software tools out there that can do this,
but I think (maybe in the new batching system) that Audacity is also a
great fit for this type of feature.
Anyway, whether or not it's something that could be considered in the
future thanks again for all of your great work!
(if there is some way to do this automatically that I'm just missing,
please poke fun of me in an email explaining how to do so)
