Jumpstart your recording career for free with Audacity


From pcworld.

Music soothes the savage breast, but newcomers to the sonic scene may screech louder than a dubstep-tinged turntable session when they see the cost of professional audio-editing software. Fortunately for folks who don’t want to take out a second mortgage to fund their podcast, there’s Audacity, a powerful open-source audio editor that offers excellent basic production capabilities for a very reasonable price: free.

Audacity isn’t as complicated as its full-priced DAW (digital audio workstation) brethren, but the program’s dizzying array of buttons and options will stymie most novice users. This handy-dandy beginner’s guide walks you through the basics of getting started with Audacity.
