  • TERRIBLE! Program simply deleted an entire hour long podcast for no reason. No explanation was given, simply, "possible bug error". That's how customers are treated? They work so hard on editing and constructing something only to see there was a bug error? Great work Audacity, you have truly won my trust on this one. Never using this software again.

  • i have made a review for Audacity in Arabic you can check it from here :- www.downloadprogramsline.com/download-audacity/

  • This is excellent software. It's great for removing noise and clicks from old audio files. It's awesome for mixing multiple tracks down to a stereo file. I use it for speeding up spoken word tracks without increasing the pitch. Cutting and cross fading is easy. The equalization is very good. I can't be used on-the-fly but I quickly got used to the preview mode which can be set to any part of the track. It does a great job of exporting tracks to compressed audio formats. I recently discovered that you can drop video files into Audacity and it will grab the audio tracks. This makes it ideal for extracting audio from video files. There's a lot more to say about this great piece of software. Many thanks to all those who have contributed to it!
