New Version Of Audacity Is Available – 2.0.6

Hey, there!

There’s a new version of AUdacity, the free audio recording and editing software I recommend.

Here’s how to get it for free.


And just so you know what’s in the new version, here’s what the Audacity development team said about it:

September 29, 2014: Audacity 2.0.6 Released
Audacity 2.0.6 replaces all previous versions.


– better user interface for Keyboard Preferences
– streamlining of several Menus
– LV2 now supported on all platforms, and improved VST settings interface
– translations updated, including adding Tamil language
– other improvements, including to import/export and ease of installation on Mac OS X

Bug Fixes:

– user interface bug fixes to Region Restore, dragging selections, and many others
– effects bug fixes to add missing effects to Chains, fix accuracy of Analyze > Contrast
– fix accuracy of Noise Removal attack and decay
– improve speed of Nyquist effects on OS X and Linux
– other bug fixes to Timeline after Loop Play, Transcription Toolbar, and Linux build issues

(Don’t worry if any or none of that makes sense to you – you should upgrade)

You can, if you want to immerse yourself in the very technical nature of what’s new, read all about it here:

Hope this helps!

    Wow! You’ve left us with yet another example of VO people who “pay it forward.”

    Had it not been for you, I would’ve had no idea that the number one tool in my toolbox had just been upgraded.

    Thank you for the heads-up! Bless you!

    Thank you for this info!! Unfortunately, I’ve had trouble actually getting the newer version to launch on my computer. Anyone else having this problem?
