A new version for Audacity (2.0.1) has landed recently in the Audacity official repository. As a reminder, Audacity is a free cross-platform audio editor and renderer that allows users to edit/copy/cut/mix/splice audio files (MP3, WAV, OGG, etc.), record live audio coming from computer speakers or microphone, etc.
Changes and Improvements For Audacity 2.0.1
- Shortcuts can now be added in Keyboard Preferences to items in the Generate, Effect or Analyze menus, including user-added plug-ins.
- Nyquist Effect plug-ins can now be added to Chains.
- New "Paulstretch" effect for extreme slowdown without pitch change.
- New "Sample Data Export" Analyze effect for exporting a file containing amplitude values for each sample in the selection.
- New Preference (off by default) to import files On-Demand (without seek ability) when using the optional FFmpeg library.
- New Preference (off by default) to retain labels when deleting a selection that snaps to the label without extending past it.
