Audacity Sound Editor 1.3.12 Released

Latest News April 1st, 2010:

The Audacity Team is pleased to announce the release of Audacity 1.3.12 (Beta) for Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix. There are some important bug fixes and improvements, especially for dragging and synchronization of labels.

We continue to recommend the ongoing Beta series for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Mac OS X 10.6, rather than 1.2. Advanced users are encouraged to test our subsequent changes as we make them by downloading our Nightly Builds:

* Cutting or deleting a region in the waveform and label track did not move the labels in advance of the cut
* Incorrect behavior snapping to labels and boundaries with Snap To enabled
* Projects froze if files imported via On-Demand were no longer available
* (Windows 7) Clicking in a file open or save dialog caused files or folders to disappear from the list, and file filtering was broken
* Other import/export, effects and crash fixes

Changes and Improvements:

* A hover tooltip is now provided if the Mixer Toolbar input selector cannot control the system slider for the selected input
* More intuitive behavior when moving and resizing labels by dragging
* Export Multiple: new option to use a numerical prefix before existing label or track names
* New Equalization preset "Inverse RIAA", with new button to invert other curves
