Audacity 2.1.0 released

Audacity 2.1.0 is released & has lots of improvements and bug fixes.



Audacity is a free, open source, cross-platform software for recording & editing sounds.

Several improvements include:

  • Real-Time Preview for effects. It seemed nearly unachievable without major restructuring. But with Audacity 2.1.0, we have it in LADSPA, VST, and Audio Unit (OS X) effects! Thanks to Leland Lucius for these great new capabilities!
  • Much improved Noise Reduction effect replaces Noise Removal. Thanks to new contributor Paul Licameli!
  • Lots of other improvements to effects, also thanks to Leland, including:
    VST: FXB preset banks, hosting multiple plugins
  • All effects can now be used in Chains, and can be sorted on name, publisher, or class.
  • Most Nyquist effects now have Preview button.
  • Redesigned Meter Toolbars show a lot more information in smaller area. Thanks, Leland Lucius and James Crook!
  • Spectral Selection in Spectrogram view. Thanks to Paul Licameli!
