Audacity Store

The Free, Cross-Platform Sound Editor


Audacity is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds. It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems. Learn more about Audacity... Also check our Wiki and Forum for more information.

The latest release of Audacity is 1.3.4 (beta). Because it is a work in progress and does not yet come with complete documentation or translations into foreign languages, it is recommended for more advanced users. See New Features in 1.3 for more information about the 1.3.x beta series.

For all users, Audacity 1.2.6 is a stable release, complete and fully documented. You can have both Audacity 1.2.6 and 1.3.3 installed simultaneously.

March 24, 2008: Call for Students! Apply NOW for Audacity projects in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2008

Students! Interested in supporting Audacity and earning a stipend this summer? Extended application deadline! Apply by 5:00 PM PDT on April 7, 2008 (00:00 UTC on April 8, 2008)!

Audacity is a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2008! GSoC offers student developers $4,500 stipends to write code for various open source projects.

Google Summer of Code 2008

We are now seeking student participants. We look for evidence that the student has a real interest in our project, 'Do they actually use it?' rather than just choosing some project that is part of GSoC.

If you are an interested student, please follow these steps:

  1. Review the student app documentation. Also check the GSoC FAQs, especially from 'How does a student apply?'.
  2. Make sure you are eligible.
  3. On the Audacity Wiki, check the project ideas page.
  4. If you find an interesting idea, or have one of your own, check Writing GSoC Proposals.
  5. Then email us. Far better to discuss plans with us before applying.

If you know any students who might be interested, possibly those already involved in music/audio research, please point them to our website for this information.
