In Praise of Audacity

I’m not talking of being Bold or displaying Courage, but of the Audio manipulation programme Audacity.

What a wonderful program, described as ” Free Digital Editor” it does that and then some.  I’ve only used the Linux version but it’s allowed me to create .wav files for CD-r from MIDI files created by my wife, despite the fact that Audacity doesn’t read MIDI files.  How did it achieve this?  Simply by allowing me to record the playback of the MIDI file directly into Audacity.  I can then split, merge and generally manipulate the file(s) as I like.

To the developers  THANKS, a wonderful program

To anyone who needs to manipulate an audio file, mp3, wav or many other formats, try Audacity it’s very very good.

There are Mac and Windows versions as well, if they are as good as the Linux version, the developers will have covered almost all popular Operating Systems
