  1. This is fantastic news! Audacity is one of those unsung treasures. Even though I have other more expen$ive tools, I use Audacity often for things it does better than any other program! And the more I learn it the more I appreciate the depth of thought that has gone into it.

    Can’t wait to try the new features!!!

    This is one of those times when my daily checking of Synthtopia really pays off!!!
