I'm a musician/sound designer and I really want make audacity my main audio edition software.
I'm a first timer in this list.
There is one functionnality in the soft of Sony (you know, sound fo****) which can be easilly implemented (and improved ! ) in audacity.
In sound fo**** when you select a part of a sound file and with correct options activated ("Acid editing tools" or something like that) the selected part of sound is divided in 4 by a ruler.
This tool (only graphical !) is pure candy when working on rythmic samples or live-bands recordings. More, you have buttons to double, halve or translate your selection (for selecting multiple measures or splitting a track in parts (you know, intro, chorus, verse)). And there is a bpm indication of the sample you have selected (based on the length of the selection).
IMHO, this kind of functionnality would not be very difficult to code in audacity (because it's only graphical help tool) and could be extended with rythmic signatures different of 4/4 (you could have your ruler dividing your selection in 3, 6, 5, 7 etc...) in order to work on jazz, blues and styles of music which are not in 4/4 (like mainstream music).
I have a (very) little experience of C++, and maybe if there is a good doc on audacity interface, SDK, I could help (I'm not sure: don't have so much time, and I'm afraid of the learning curve :-D ).
Hope you have understood what I mean, and could give me some informations.
Anyway, give me feedback on that, please ; and keep that good work !!!
