Audacity 2.1.0

Open source audio editing tool


Email Message *


Functionality is the main code for the interface of Audacity, but this has its bad sides, because the app looks as simple as possible. There may be a lot functions, but they are portrayed with simple icons with no attempt to make it all user friendly. But as we mentioned before, the program is made by users too, which means that no one, that works with it, cares about that. And why does nobody care – because the app has so many functions that they upgrade its rank to the top programs in the field. You can do a lot of things with it, which is visible only from the main screen which is filled with tools, but also you can see eight tabs at the top, that contribute to the overall professional feel that you get by working with Audacity.

Basic Operations

All the operations with Audacity are made quickly and once you learn the different icons, because it takes some time to grasp their meaning, you can be sure that you'll be able to do whatever you want with your audio file. For example you can speed up or slow down any song, cut and paste any part, undo and redo changes, add silence and remove it and add so many effects that they barely fit into the screen when you open their tab. On top of it you can analyze any song and if you still have a problem you can use the help created by Audacity Team to understand that there are even more options.


Audacity 2.1.0 is powerful software, which is appropriate for all type of users. However even if you are a pro, probably, there will be some features, which you won't ever use. The only thing I didn't like about this app is its interface. The team of Audacity still has work to do regarding the software outfit.
