"Genial"

What do you like best?

o descubrí por casualidad y desde entonces lo he utilizado bastante. Con él edito podcasts, eliminando el ruido de fondo, dándole más intensidad a la voz y añadiendo sonidos simpáticos. También se podría mezclar las voces de dos cantantes que canten la misma canción. . Seguramente haya otros estudios de grabación más potentes, pero son de pago. Con Audacity tienes la ventaja de contar con una licencia libre, tenerlo en español y disponer de muchas herramientas. En el siguiente vídeo muestra como cambiar la voz (para que no te reconozcan en un podcasts), sin ninguna dificultad y te muestra como descargarlo desde la página oficial.

Ls interfaz de la aplicación es una autentica gozada, algo que se agradece debido a que a los novatos nos cuesta dar ese paso, porque abres el programa y te parece imposible de aprender. Las herrmaientas son útiles , no hay ninguna obsoleta y mucho menos alguna que no sirva de nada. todas útiles y perfectas para su fincionamiento.

What do you dislike?

. La verdad lo descargué porque vi un video en donde decía que puede sacar el ruido de fondo de un audio que es justo lo que necesitaba. Pero al momento de editar el audio la opción disminuir ruido no se puede escoger.

Al ser un programa gratuito, tiene carencias de actualizaciones tanto de software como de idiomas, entre otros más

La mejor aplicación gratuita de audio

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En mi empresa, al estar relacionada con el mundo audiovisual, necesito programas buenos, algo que audacity responde perfectamente.

"Easy, small and yet robust"

What do you like best?

The learning curve for learning Audacity is pretty short. If you already have some experience with audio editing software, you can master it in just a couple of hours. However, it’s still a robust tool for audio editing. Another things I like is that, in comparison with more sophisticated software, it’s small, so much it can easily be loaded on any USB device without taking too much memory of it. My favorite tool on Audacity, and what I personally thing represent its biggest strength, is the Noise Reduction tool. It works great for cleaning up the sounds created by background noises.

What do you dislike?

With the latest updates, the software has changed the shapes and localization for some tools, making it hard to find for some users (me included). Although it’s very easy to use for experienced users, it may be a bit complicated for newest users. For this, maybe Audacity could include a tutorial. I know it can already be found on Youtube and forums, but I would like to see an official tutorial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommended as a support tool for audio editing, even audio on video. Perfect if you want to take away the background noise on any audio or video recording without taking too much time. It will be a great tool for experienced users on audio editing software, but if you’re not, you can still learn from it and it may not take more than a week.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audicity is used as a support software on our Marketing team, whenever we want to edit audio for any audio or video marketing content. It’s especially useful when it comes to cleaning up the audio on video. The very simple interface makes this process to be fast and efficient.

"For freeware, it does the job!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy Audacity makes it to edit audio. I originally got it to clean my files and filter out background noise, but now I use the tempo filter to speed up my voice overs and make them sound more professional. I love that this software is free. That is by far my favorite element.

What do you dislike?

The only downside of Audacity that I've encountered is that there isn't a good option for reverb. I've had clients complain about reverb (echo) in my voice overs. I get this because I don't use a soundproof studio, so at times, there might be a little reverb. Audacity doesn't have an easy way to filter that. I've tried the reverb option, but in my opinion it just makes it worse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create professional voice overs by cleaning background noise from my voice over narrations, and use the editing tools to cut out unwanted parts.

"Would actually pay for it, if it weren't free"

What do you like best?

Easy to understand interface, with easy (within reason) to navigate menu system. Menu-accessible items are grouped ergonomically, to make them easy to find. Even functions for switching input devices are right in front of you, changeable "on the fly".

What do you dislike?

Was annoyed to find I needed a plug-in to do basic MP3 files, and even that was the "Lame" version. Also, there is quite a bit of a learning curve on the function for noise removal... fortunately, Audacity is fully documented, so even newest of "noobs" can get by without calling tech support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to filter out background noise from ghost hunt recordings, or just looking to play around, you've come to the right place. I've been using both the Windows and Linux versions for a very long time, with no problems at all. Audacity makes it a simple task to mix multiple tracks into one final audio product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Audacity to record and edit audio tracks for my videos, and sound clips for my desktop applications. Audacity is able to handle all the different file formats that I encounter for varying project types.

"A simple tool for audio editing for campaigns"

What do you like best?

The variety on the number of options for editing audio on Audacity is just amazing. I am able to edit content from the deepest aspects, and all of this comes with a low cost of resources, as it doesn’t take too much of these, while still proving a robust software. Finally, all of these functionalities are free to use, making it available for everybody.

What do you dislike?

The UI looks rubbish: the buttons are too small and the colors are too dark. I think this aspect could improve a lot in order to make Audacity more visually appealing and more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For simple audio works, Audacity is a great tool that takes little resources from your machine and still deliver a good product. This is the audio software I put on number one, but some of my colleagues prefer to use other more complex audio software. This will depend on your personal needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On the marketing department, Audacity is an important used on audio editing for our campaigns. Most of the times, it is used to edit audio on videos, as Audacity provides a greater number of tools than most of the video editors, allowing us to get better results.

"Audacity, a free audio editing tool, small in weight, with great features."

What do you like best?

Audacity is a free tool, which has very good features for all types of audio editing, although it is not an application at the same level as other professional audio editing applications, it has very essential features to perform different editing tasks. and audio enhancement, this program allows to do the basic tasks of audio editing, cutting, combining, pasting, overlaying audios, accelerating, tracks, reducing noise, in short a free tool that can be used for many editing tasks, the advantage of this application is that for small projects improvements or changes can be made in less time.

What do you dislike?

The tool is designed to perform basic editing processes, or fast, for an advanced edition, it is no longer recommended, since it lacks certain tools that are needed for a more powerful audio edition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An excellent tool for audio editing, to do small jobs, which need a quick edit, you can perform basic processes, audio cuts, improvements, the tool is free, and meets everything you say, without problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this tool we can make simple audio editions, in a shorter time, than if we did it in a more advanced audio editor, the advantage of this application is that it is free, and it can get you out of trouble, when you need to deliver a basic audio improvement work, is a tool that complements very well, with other advanced audio editing tools.

"FREE Full Featured Audio Editing!"

What do you like best?

Full of tools, filters, and other editing options. It's totally free open source software, with active support and development communities. It has plenty for power users but is reasonably easy for audio newbies to use. We looked around for a better alternative and kept coming back to Audacity!

What do you dislike?

Being as feature rich as it is, navigating the various dropdown and sub menus can be a bit of a challenge if you don't use the software regularly. There are also a few tools with less than complete explanations of how to use them. For instance, the noise reduction filter (one we use constantly thanks to overly zealous HVAC returns) needs you to open it, then click a setup button. Then you're just left staring at the screen with no clear idea what you need to do next. HINT: You need to select a section of the audio which contains only the background noise. Press ENTER. Then reopen the menus and dialog to get back to the filter. Works great once you figure it out, but it took a few times through.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't have hundreds (or thousands) to spend on audio editing software, you can't go wrong with Audacity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for an audio editing program to handle some occasional light editing. After looking around at all of the various options, of which there are many, we kept coming back to Audacity. Now we use it as the standard audio editor for the campus.

"Perfect audio editing"

What do you like best?

I can record my voice easily with a single click, it has a red circle where you press and start recording (RECORD). I can edit the voice, increase the volume, lower the volume. I can add echo and resonance. It is very practical and free. I like the cleanliness with which the audios are left when they are exported, wonderful application. when I have to export the voice note, it is saved in the best quality, and according to the previous edition it has the best possible sound, it is magic, it removes the noise, it adds reverberation, echo, it is practical, I love it and I will continue using it in my work.

What do you dislike?

Everything in the I like it, there is not something that I dislike, because I use it in a concrete way and it is very practical for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This application is also used to record songs, I use it to record my voice notes. I recommend it totally without hesitation, download it is worth it, it will help you in those small details of life. Or if you are a singer, it is your ideal tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to create audios for my clients, for my web page. Notes explaining some product of my page, things like that, I just record my voice and use it for this purpose, announce something. When I create content on the internet, I record the audios with Audacity. That is the maximum benefit I get.

"Powerful and usable"

What do you like best?

It's great! I find it very good and easy to start. The editing is simple and the conversion to files is fast. It has a variety of file formats that can be created with this incredible tool.

What I like the most is the fact that you can take any audio file (wav, mp3, aif) and put it in the edit tab and add whatever effect you can.

I have been using Audacity since mid-2016 mainly to eliminate background noise from my audio recordings. With Audacity, you can do much more than simply edit audio or record a voice over. It also has a variety of effects that you can apply to audio.

Audacity is a free open source audio editor and recorder. It's the most solid free audio editor I've found so far. It works on Windows, Mac OS X, GNU / Linux and other operating systems. Audacity is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

What do you dislike?

Very intuitive and works very well. The first thing I capture when I need to make more complex editions in audio files. Possibly the best program of its kind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Audacity. If you need to record or work with audio, get it. It is the best option is totally free and if you like music and you have a limited budget, this will do the job. I have used it successfully for years without problems. Get it. I appreciate that someone has taken the time to create this for us. Thank you

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Oh yes, if there is a tool that I use for audio, this is it. Audacity is number one. The capture of sound, the improvement of sound, and anything else, even the editing of sounds, is the best. It works fast, it is easily saved, it makes a terrible sound music great or bearable, assuming you know how to use it, of course. The audacity is as good as the user, that is, to know him, he will not disappoint! I could never believe it's free, but hey, I'm not complaining!

"Audacity para editar audio"

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

De serie no incluye efectos ni otras herramientas avanzadas. Aunque los hay en plugins gratuitos. Pero presenta dificultades para un usuario novel la instalación de los mismos. Para efectos tenemos Plugins VST y Nyquist.

Otros programas de la competencia ofrecen las mismas funciones y las amplían. Pero no son tan fáciles de manejar.

Al ser un programa mantenido por usuarios en su tiempo libre, no se les puede pedir la misma potencia en el servicio técnico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomenadado por tener los elementos esenciales y mínimos necesarios para disponer de un estudio de grabación completo.

TODO SIN DSELMBOLSAR NADA POR LAS LICENCIAS!

Además estarás contribuyendo con la filosofía de Open Source al usar este producto.

"The audacity is great!"

What do you like best?

This is a great audio editor and make shift DAW. The editor is simple and conversion to MP3 or Wave files is quick and easy. Use Audacity to edit podcasts and make simple demonstration recordings with ease. This is a great solution for aspiring dj or anyone who does not want to invest a lot to edit their podcasts. In my opinion, the really special part of Audacity is the ability to import an image file and use the different settings to achieve strange textures and effects in your photos or illustrations. I import TIFF images and uncompressed audio into Audacity a few times and it does not crash or break when I manipulate large files.

What do you dislike?

The only real difficulty I have is finding the time to review each available tool to determine exactly what it does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this very excellent tool to all people who want to enter the field of audio editions or simply need an easy and simple editor that has almost no complications and edits as a professional program and to others it is a free software that is totally free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Audacity for the last three years and it has seemed like an excellent sound recording and editing program. I usually use it to record my own voice or to edit the recorded sound from other sources, such as the Internet, mp3 or analog recorders. The recordings end clear.

"Excellent program is very useful to me. "

What do you like best?

Audacity combines a nice interface and varied functions of very good shape. is an excellent audio editing program with which you can cut, mix, add effects, record and everything you can imagine to unleash your creativity in regards to music and sounds.

If you download the necessary add-ons, you can add many effects and even import and export several audio formats. The program is very complete and, above all, very intuitive, so it is not necessary to be an expert to handle at least the basics.

For my part, I could eliminate the voice of many songs and only keep the audio, which I can not do with another program.

What do you dislike?

Excellent.

Thank you very much, I am fascinated by this great, super good, but the convincing has not had any problem or anything for style, easy to use and everything

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity has the great advantage that it is very easy to learn to drive and offers good editing opportunities. I recommend it for those who need to make recordings and edit quickly while preserving their quality.

Note.

It's such a good program, and for free ... ... it can not be missing from your computer, whether or not you are an expert in the field.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audacity is an easy to use and very effective program for editions, especially for the management of changes of tonality and accelerations or decelerations of themes.

I could remove the voice of many songs and only keep the audio, which I can not do with another program.

"A concise sound editor for a variety of media projects"

What do you like best?

I like the abundance of tools that are available in such a light piece of software. Not only can I quickly do standard edits like cutting clips, changing pitch and adding reverb, but I can also install professional plugins that can take effects to the next level. Many of the plugins I use in software like Cubase can also be used in Audacity. So when I need to do quick edits with Vamp, LV2 and Nyquist plugins, I easily do so in Audacity.

What do you dislike?

Working with multiple audio layers isn't as intuitive as a digital music workstation like Cubase or Logic Pro. The layers are spread apart awkwardly and are hard to keep track of and work with. I like to be able to cut segments of audio in each timeline instead of working with one monolithic chunk of sound.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Audacity is great for basic sound editing, but if you have a major project with lots of depth and intricate edits, it's probably better to use more professional software like Cubase, Logic Pro or Pro Tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audacity provides the standard tools I need to create quick and high quality edits to sound files. Having great sound is important for all types of media nowadays, so Audacity is very valuable in helping to improve all of our media that has sound in it. Audacity is also great for saving files in different formats. We can save to WAV, MP3, AIFF and other files.

"Edición sonora de nivel"

What do you like best?

Primero de todo, es una aplicación gratuita, eso quiere decir que la empresa no debe preocuparse con pagar por adquirir este sotfware.

Con Audacity se puede grabar audio en vivo a través de un micrófono o un mezclador, o digitalizar grabaciones de cintas de cassette, discos o minidiscos . Con algunas tarjetas de sonido, con Audacity también puede capturar streaming de audio.

Puedo importar archivos de sonido, editarlos y combinarlos con otros archivos o nuevas grabaciones. Exporta tus grabaciones en diferentes formatos de archivo, incluyendo archivos múltiples al mismo tiempo, esta aplicación es excelente con en todo el ámbito de edición de sonido.

What do you dislike?

solo incluye lo escencial y de por si no incluye efectos, cuenta con herramientas avanzadas y canvas mas avanzado.

- Lo reducido del tamaño en disco hace que se tenga cortar muchas funciones.

- Muchos programas ofrecen las mismas funciones y mejores.

-Rango de acceso limitado

-Edicion de audio esencial y limitada

-No incluye integración con otras plataformas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aplicación totalmente gratuita, si quieres editar sonido, pruebala, ya que no tiene ningún costo y puede que te lleves una grata sorpresa usando este gran programa, cuenta con puntos como:

- Como ocupa poco espacio en disco, no requiere de largo tiempo de descarga

- Tiene una Interfaz acomodable.

- Disponible para la mayoría de sistemas operativos actuales.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Programa sencillo y practico para la edición de musica"

What do you like best?

Audacity es una gran herramienta, me encanta la facilidad de cómo insertar y editar archivos de audio. Hace que sea tan fácil editar y retrabajar una pieza de música que necesita cambios, la gran variedad de formatos de archivo que se pueden crear con este programa es increíble, como lo son las guías de ayuda en línea extremadamente detalladas y frecuentemente actualizadas. Audacity tiene muchas más características, algunas de las cuales acabo de jugar. Me gusta que Audacity no esté lleno de anuncios, solicitudes de donaciones molestas o instalaciones y rastreadores ocultos de software oculto

What do you dislike?

Aunque el proceso de exportación es fácil, lo único que sí me disgusta es que no se conoce el tamaño final del archivo de audio, realmente ayudaría tener una aproximación para que pueda modificar la exportación para adaptarla a sus necesidades, ya sea que solo quiera saber qué tan grande sería una exportación de audio de alta resolución o adaptarla a una necesidad comprimida y saber que puede hacerlo sin tener que seguir exportando y probando.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si ya tiene Adobe CC, entonces realmente no necesita este programa. Pero si recién está empezando y no puede pagar los programas más "profesionales", o necesita editar rápidamente algo de audio, entonces este programa es definitivamente para usted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con frecuencia enfrentamos problemas con el audio de origen cuando tratamos con clientes corporativos. A menudo, tendremos un testimonio o entrevista para un anuncio de difusión grabado en un entorno ruidoso, y la única solución es el aislamiento acústico selectivo y la reducción de ruido. Si bien las herramientas de nuestra Adobe Suite pueden ser más robustas, no son tan sencillas como Audacity. En la aplicación, literalmente seleccionamos una porción de ruido simple, y seleccionamos Efecto> Eliminación de ruido> Obtener perfil de ruido. No podría ser más fácil, y no solo eso, ¡es efectivo! La eliminación de ruido en Audacity es una característica novedosa, pero excelente y técnicamente competente.

"Powerful, Simple Audio Editor"

What do you like best?

Audacity, the free audio editing program, makes it easy to alter audio files to fill a specific time slot.

What do you dislike?

Given the price, it's tough to say anything bad about Audacity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software does not come with a manual per se, though it has a good help system. The online support is excellent, and a number of YouTube videos are available to get you up to speed in a hurry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audacity has greatly simplified the editing and preparation of audio files for commercial spots. It's very easy to remove background noises, to edit out coughs and errors, and to combine multiple files into a final mix. The best feature, though, is Audacity's ability to stretch or shrink a file to precisely fit a time slot, such as 30 seconds, even if the original is quite a bit shorter or longer, without changing the pitch.

Audacity is easy to install, to set up, and to use, and offer many processing options such as the addition of sound effects, with more optional plugins appearing frequently. These, like Audacity itself, are easy to obtain, install and use.

Audacity's results in technical terms are on a par with all but the most costly audio editors, and may equal or exceed them in some of the most critical areas. In any case, the results, using any properly equipped computer, are broadcast quality. Ease of use and pricing propel Audacity to the top.

"Makes any presentation BETTER"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Audacity is that you can import your own audio or you can record right on the application. Also, you're able to tweak your tracks and mix new tracks. It is so easy to use. I use it every time I have a presentation that is recorded and not live.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of functions to Audacity. But it would be great if those functions actually told you to want they did. If you're not well versed in any audio software it could be very imposing. The interface for the application hasn't changed in a very long time. I would suggest that it has an update. I would recommend implementing a few tutorials for those that aren't as experienced,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like I said before, it would be in your best interest to update the interface. This way the application is a bit more fluid and not so imposing. I would also implement a tutorial for those that are well versed in audio editing software. Surprisingly enough, not a lot of my colleagues have heard of audacity before I introduced them to it. If Audacity has lost it fanbase, this would be the excellent opportunity to reinvent and re-introduce itself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software takes any recording from mediocre and ordinary to EXTRAORDINARY. Displaying a presentation just with your own voice can be extremely boring. So I am and my team use audacity to make it more interesting and we use it also as an editing too so we can record a few times and simply edit out the mistakes.

"Fantastic, easy tool for retouching audio files"

What do you like best?

I like that it is incredibly easy and straightforward to do simple edits of audio files including clipping, volume control and fade outs. Audacity is very user-friendly and intuitive and it is easy to quickly make the changes I need in all kinds of audio files. The program opens quickly and doesn't take up much space and tasks are completed quickly and easily.

What do you dislike?

I use Audacity for simple, straightforward tasks and, as such, there is nothing I dislike about it. It is very useful to me. And you can't beat free!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy, straightforward tool for editing audio files for personal use or business. It is free and very simple to use and also quite intuitive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to quickly edit audio files of music and voice (interviews, etc) to include in promotional videos for our businesses. I am also to edit our music files to include blocks of silence, for example, or to fade in or out. Audacity made it possible for me to create a weekly Q&A program with a musical intro and outro as well as the interview without having to purchase a program to do it with. I upload and edit all the audio files in Audacity first and then simply plug them in to my video editing software later.

"The starter pack of the audio edition"

What do you like best?

Audacity is an extremely useful tool, a bit basic compared to other editing suites, but it offers what is necessary to simplify the audio editing process, and the best? It is an open source program. The interface is simple but it shows the basic controls, and although it requires the user to have some previous experience, it’s not so complicated to work with it.

What do you dislike?

The basic options are easy to understand, there is a certain weakness in the effects menu, because it shows all the effects directly, and this can be a bit confusing for users, because they require some additional help or guidance; Besides that, once you start using it, you discover that exporting formats such as mp3 requires downloading additional libraries, which makes the work a bit tedious, because the instructions are not very clear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a Rookie in the matter of the edition, I recommend a little previous reading for the use of the program, in order to identify controls more quickly, the design of it is conservative but quite useful. In my experience, I recommend testing the plugins one by one, test projects are an excellent option, in this way you guarantee a correct understanding of their operation, and adapt your work style to the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I currently use Audacity as part of my Audio edit tools, to assemble the audio of a video tutorial, thanks to this I have been able to give effective training, it is simple and doesn’t consume many computer resources, which makes the results excellent.

"Audacity is a necessity, but has its challenges"

What do you like best?

Audacity plays every type of audio file I work with (in music recording) and is absolutely a necessary tool to have. Really like visual envelope display - which can be used to locate audio segments if you don't have timing data available.

What do you dislike?

Hard to set playback volume. Hard to set playhead position from keyboard. Hard to set playback device. It would be cool if Audacity would play through the device I've chosen for system output, but instead it remembers the last device it played through and uses that. Must use a pulldown to select the device I want to use today. Playback volume seems independent of system volume - set using a slider. No way to use keyboard to go back and forth (scrubbing) playing audio. Have to click to set a playback position on visual display.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really good as freeware goes. Much functionality. Way more than I ever use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is the best free playback software I know of...with functionality you can't get from quicktime and default players.

Audacity is the topmost software for upcoming generation and new learners who are eager to learn about the editing for music and developing music. It is a cheaper software and easily downloadable in every computer.

What do you dislike?

Audacity software is not available on mobile phones and tabs due to which many users are unable to use it. Audacity Graphical User Interface (GUI) is also not properly presentable. Audacity should be frequently updated from time to time so that the software remains updated. Samples should be provided which explains the usage of this software to even the layman.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software should improve its Graphical User Interface and the same should be working in the mobiles, tablets etc. This software should advertise on maximum social sites so that most of the people are aware of the usage of Audacity. Education should also be provided in schools, colleges, universities about this software so that the new learners feel free to learn on the early stage.

"Great for cutting music!"

What do you like best?

I love that audacity is a free program!!! It has been super beneficial in helping us edit music for class projects! I was able to learn how to use the program just by playing around with it.

What do you dislike?

If I forget to close the program before closing my laptop, the work will often not be there when I reopen my computer. As long as you remember to save any projects immediately and always quit the program before closing the computer, you are good to go!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity is a wonderful product (and its FREE)!! I don't know much about music editing software aside from Audacity, but this seems like it can do anything that needs to be done. It is easy to copy and paste cuts of the music within the piece. You can also change tempos, pitch, and pretty much anything else you need to edit within the music!.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to cut music on my own without outsourcing it to someone else. It has saved me quite a bit of time and money.

"Audacity - Edit Music in MilliSeconds"

What do you like best?

Audacity is really an advanced music editor. It offers tons of features and the best feature is that any song can be edited till the millisecond level. We can zoom into any music song in graphical form and the song can be edited, mix and blended with a new song (DJ Effect), pitch/tempo change is also possible. Other than these features it also provides some advanced features like distortion, echo, fade in/out and noise reduction.

What do you dislike?

The Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Audacity is not like a professional editor. Although there is no limit in the features of the product, the Graphical User Interface of the software can be improvised to a certain extent. One major problem that I feel while using this software is that the resolution of the software is not clear. The radio buttons and menu's looks distorted/ pixelated. The graphics of the software can be bought to at least 720p or even higher so that the users feel like working on professional software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity is free and lightweight which can be installed on almost any computer. No special configurations are required for this software. Being a free software Audacity provides tons of professional features like compressor and reverb. If you do edit music or remix different songs into one track, this software is a must try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We basically edit the music for videos and basic events. It is a very lightweight software which can be used to efficiently cut and remix different sources of music and bounce it back to one track. So it is highly efficient and effective.

"Una gran herramienta de manejo de voces y efectos de sonido"

What do you like best?

Con Audacity podemos editar fácilmente nuestros archivos de audio, contando con una alta gama de efectos certificados para la personalización de cada sonido. Puedes mezclar en varias secciones distintas pistas de audio y formar un podcast completo editado y listo para poder cargarlo a la red.

What do you dislike?

Actualmente usando Audacity no he tenido problemas resaltantes, mas que algunos problemas con la velocidad del rendimiento, o cuando se detiene en ciertas ocasiones y hay de reiniciar su funcionamiento. Tambien me gustaría mencionar que ciertos archivos que corresponden al uso de Audacity tienden a ser un poco pesados ocupando buena parte de tu memoria.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yo siempre obtengo excelentes resultados utilizando Audacity y lo considero una herramienta esencial para mi trabajo, así que si tu trabajo incluye edición de audio o mezcla, lo recomiendo ampliamente.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Small arrangements on audio files"

What do you like best?

The UI for Audacity is pretty simple, making it easy to master when you got some experience on audio software. Although it has its limitations in comparison with other related software, it makes the process of editing tracks so easy that’s almost fun. Something I specially like is that Audacity is often showing tips when you’re making some actions, helping user to familiarize with the platform.

What do you dislike?

I have used this software on different OS, but in Linux it tends to freeze and closes itself very frequently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This platform is great for workers on the Marketing department, community managers, musicians and everyone in need to edit or create tracks. This is a simple yet a powerful tool. It’s highly recommended for beginners on audio editing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On my working environment, Audacity is the tool I use to make small arrangements on audio for marketing campaigns on my company. On my personal life, Audacity is my preferred platform to fulfill one of my passions: music! I use it to create and edit tracks for my band.

"Audio manage, mastering and sharing. All that you need."

What do you like best?

Audacity it's my tool to work my partners music. Im being using it since a while, its my first step in audio recording, we used to record all the work on audacity, give some edits there, and them move it to another software to mix it with the instrumentals.

But we spend a time on Audacity giving the best sound on voices and some instruments of course wich in this software could be very good to edit and have a nice results.

What do you dislike?

Im actually don't have any problem to report about the software, even it becomes better with the versions and its absolutely unexpensive. So in this case, i don't think in perfection, but works very good on his job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have the greatest results, doing your music work with this software, and discover its complete capacity, im sure you'll have no regrets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're being recording voices and doing some beats with Audacity since a long time and the results just turn great, nice edit features, a lot of effects ands plugins and even the posibility of remake completely a song and do a great mix.

"Great audio editing software available for free"

What do you like best?

This is an amazing software for doing audio editing, recording or re-encoding that is available for free. It has all the basic features you would look for and some more advanced ones, with my favorite one the option to reduce noise by taking a sample of the audio.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem about Audacity is its interface, which is not intuitive and many features will remain hidden for most users. It also requires exploring the documentation to be aware what you can do with it, which could fixed with a cleaner interface. It is worth nothing you will need to download some codecs by separate, like the MP3 one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity can be good for basic tasks, and considering it is supported by a huge community and is free, it is worth to consider it using it. Sadly, several features will require checking for tutorials or the documentation as it could be confusing for newcomers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using Audacity to do certain tasks as cleaning recordings such as live conversations, audio from low-quality microphones or even to quickly encode files to another format. It is also great to record audio in overall.

"Provides a professional product for an amateur producer"

What do you like best?

I could use the GUI to find what I needed to do in spite of my own great ignorance of audio recording software. There were many audio editing filter features I would have liked to have known more about, but without easy documentation and any need for anything beyond basic editing I did not explore these features. However, I suspect I might have used some if I had known how they would benefit me.

What do you dislike?

I would have liked some basic, simple instructions on how to use the program, something like a Quickstart Guide. There is a lot of trial and error needed to see the effects of certain choices that affect quality. It would also be nice if there were some guidelines just to help make one's guesswork more accurate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I remain amazed that such high quality software is available for free or for such low price. I don't recall what I paid for it, but it is worth many hundreds of dollars at least given the professional product that it enables you to create.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to create a complete audio book by using Audacity to edit my audiofiles. I was able to craft sufficient audio quality and sufficiently small data footprint to meet the publisher's requirements. As a result of Audacity I was able to publish a full audiobook with little more effort than the time required to record it.

"Great Software for Recording Calls"

What do you like best?

This is a great program to assist with QA by recording and keeping track of employee calls. It is easy to use and it has all of the proper functions needed to record and review calls. You can easily access all of the necessary functions without having to search through various menus. You can easily save calls or other recordings for later review. There are also several editing functions.

What do you dislike?

The layout is extremely outdated and the graphics could use some updates. No other major issues and these are very cosmetic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would update the graphics and layout. The program works great and is very useful, but a modern look will help you complete in the market place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dealing with a plethora of clients, this has helped our organization with QA by allowing a review of phone calls to either corroborate or discount client complaints. Also, it is very useful in training by allowing employees to hear their own calls. Lastly, it is very user friendly , so it does not take much training to be able to use this file.

"For free programs, it has quite a few options and not a huge learning curve"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use. I've paid for other similar programs but really like audacity because it's hard for me to become familiar with new programs. It also has some rudimentary filters and other things to clean up your tracks -- the more you familiarize yourself with the software, the better your tracks will sound.

What do you dislike?

As a free program, I'm always wishing there was a little more capability, but with audacity I still believe you get more than what you pay for. I prefer it a million times over to other programs like GarageBand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a really great program for anyone looking to edit audio files without a huge learning curve, and is especially great for those on a budget.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can be great for cleaning up audio tracks for spoken word for presentations, or it can be great for music, as well. It's really just a great program for adding to and editing any audio files you may need. I've used it to clean up my audio for professional presentations for my workplaces in the past.

"A nice open source audio editor "

What do you like best?

Open source software which has the emphasis that I like. Open to use (i.e. free) and community supported. Audacity has great features built in. And it brings powerful audio editing software to many who could not afford it other wise. It's great for bringing in audio from a live setting, fixing levels, clipping dead space & problems, and exporting a finished recording.

What do you dislike?

No built in MP3 encoder - there's reasons why it can't be and it's incredibly easy to install one, but it's another step for the end user. If you think MP3 encoding is baked in, you might be surprised.

Like much of open source software - you are your own tech support. You have to search for answers, post in public forums and await responses, etc. There isn't a tech support hot line waiting for your phone call.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware what open source means - especially when it comes to support. It will take some time to find / received responses to any problems. READ DOCUMENTATION - especially for mp3 encoding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to clean up recordings of live conversations, classes, and lectures.

"Audacity"

What do you like best?

Audacity is a great tool to take already completed recordings and isolate individual tracks. Though it is advertised as a typical digital audio workstation, this is the one function that I have found on Audacity that works incredibly well that I have not found to work as well or be as easy to use as other digital audio workstations.

What do you dislike?

Audacity's recording and editing capabilities are very limited, as are its MIDI editing capabilities. It is much more difficult to obtain high quality recordings from this software, and is not used by professional producers or audio engineers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity is not a professional digital audio workstation and does not create high quality audio files. It does not have very many editing or recording functions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audacity makes it easier to isolate certain instruments and tracks in a recording, which is a very helpful tool for transcribing. It performs this function very well, and has not yet been matched by other digital audio workstations. However, while it thrives in this one small function, it does not do well in every other function that one expects a digital audio workstation to have.
