Audacity sound editor 1.1.3 beta

Audacity 1.1.3 is the latest development snapshot of Audacity, a multitrack sound editor for MacOS, Linux and Windows. Version 1.1.3 includes a mixer toolbar for directly controlling the hardware input and output levels and recording source, gain and pan controls in every track, improved audio I/O with lower latency, higher quality resampling, and more. Audacity's project files now use standard AU files, so they can be read by other programs, but unfortunately this version of Audacity cannot open project files written by previous versions of Audacity.

Audacity sound editor 1.0 and 1.1

The Audacity Development Team is happy to announce the simultaneous release of versions 1.0.0 and 1.1.0.

Version 1.0.0 is the final, stable version of the original Audacity. It is a good, simple audio editor suitable for recording, mixing, and editing ordinary tracks of CD-quality audio, on many platforms including Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

Version 1.1.0 is the first beta release of the next version of Audacity, which includes support for higher-quality audio, more audio file formats, more effects, more editing functions, an improved user interface, and support for foreign languages. Though this version has many new and useful features, some of these features are still under development and they have not been tested as much, and there may have problems.

Version 0.91 available for download!

Finally, a release version of Audacity 0.9 is ready (actually version 0.91). If you haven't tried it since version 0.8, you'll love the new tool palette, the envelope editor, the realtime mixing, and improved UI. If you tried a preview version of 0.9, version 0.91 should fix a number of bugs, including MP3 importing.
