Audacity 1.2.2 is a new stable version of the free Audacity sound editor. This release includes new features such as level meters, multi-file export, and lower latency for multi-track recording. It also includes many bug fixes.

I use this sound editor. It's easy to use and very reliable. I highly recommend it. It's great for those simple straightforward recording jobs, like recording G2 noodles and live performances. Great for making mp3s on oggs. Nice effects. This program is getting better and better. I'm glad to see this. Congrats to the developers.

This is great software because it runs on virtually every platform, MAC, PC, and LINUX. Yeah...

Well, it's true I get 50% of each purchase, but I'm unbiased nonetheless...

I was playing around with Audacity and found a neat built-in effect, the FFT Filter. You can pretty much draw up any equalization you want, with as many points on the frequency response graph as you care to put in. Cool

I love Audacity! Especially since I dual boot WinDoze & Linux. It's the best freeware editor out there...and it's getting close to what CoolEdit/Audition (though Audition is my all-time favorite...if it only had MIDI I wouldn't need Sonar!).

Well, if you look at the Audacity web site, they are working on MIDI.

So, you run Linux. Do you do and music/audio work on that platform? Linux is my favorite OS, but I'm on XP most of the time becasue this is were the software is.

Having moved from windows to Linux for mastering up live gig recordings 12 months ago, there isn't much I miss on Linux. The tools are often very different (less GUIs, more command line tools you link together in scripts to do a job), but the core functions are still there, and GUIs are improving a lot, like audacity.

Linux makes it much easier to leave a machine working - set up all your mp3 or ogg encodes in a script and set it running while you are busy, and you can come back to find the whole lot done without worrying if the machine will crash.

welcome richardash1981

Yes, a Linux user! Glad to hear you are able to make it work. I'm an old Unix hacker, since 1978 believe it or not. I can see how a script would be great for processing a live performance. Once you get "your sound" down, just run the script and everything is just fine - I'd think.

Maybe we should start a forum for music on Linux. Do you think there is a need for this? Would it be of value? I guess there are already other places for this, but if it would help, we can always add a forum here.

On the end of October, I'm going to get the Linux server we've been running this site on for the last 14 months back for personal use. I was thinking of setting it up as a music workstation.

Let's say I'm in the middle of migrating. Many editors/tools I have only exist on windows. But many of the things I'm after are better suited to linux: algorithmic sequence programming, networking to other sequencers & sensors, etc. The new 2.6 linux kernel has some great realtime enhancements, so it is increasingly becoming more responsive than "standard" kernels. There are also now two different "distributions" for audio/multimedia: DeMudi/AGNULA & Planet CCRMA. DeMudi is based on Debian (or is geared to attach to a basic Debian install), while CCRMA is geared toward Red Hat/Fedora. Both have also been run on other distros.

I was surprised to see that on the "AGNULA Who's who" there are not one but two institutions based on my hometown: Florence, Italy

Maybe this is for the wishlist, but since OSX is based on BSD Unix, you'd think it wouldn't be to far of a stretch for Linux to get a G2 editor as well! (Both operating systems are POSIX, etc). Though there are probably very few people who use linux today in the music biz.

I would love to see a Linux forum, geared toward electro-music! There are many forums on Linux, and linux/audio, but I don't think there are many geared toward electroniuc music that are not also related to a specific program (such as C-Sound or Audacity). It'd be nice to hear from other Linux users about the programs they use, kernel settings, etc., since it's very likely we would be after the same thing.

OK, I just created a new forum called Music on Linux, under the category Instruments and Equipment. Maybe it would be better in the How Tos catagory, what do you think. Justin, would you be willing to be the moderator of this?
