About Audacity

Editors Review
It's said that the best things in life are free. This might not always be the case in the world of software, but Audacity makes a strong case for it. With so many professional level features as well as easy to use amateur ones, plus amazingly extensible functionality through plugins of every kind, Audacity provides one of the best audio editing experiences ever made - absolutely free. And it's not like it's hard to use, too - it's accessible, and scales well to any skill level.
Audacity is a free and open-source professional audio editing suite that works across a variety of platforms, and with many file formats.

With Audacity, you can perform multi-track audio editing, whether on live audio that you can record on the fly, or from files that you import. The software lets you work with WAV, AIFF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, and other formats, with even more support possible if you install additional libraries.

offers cutting, copying, splicing, and mixing of sounds in tracks, as well as more advanced features like pitch change without affecting speed, noise removal, and other effects, all in up to 32-bit/96KHz sampling. You can extend the functionality of Audacity even further by downloading and installing third-party plugins.

Aside from plugins made specifically for it, Audacity also supports VST, Nyquist, and LADSPA plugins to give you even more options to work with. It also works with LV2 plugins to load more software that works in conjunction with Audacity.
