Better Than Most Commercial Apps. Out There...

This can compete with the best available commercial software, and is better than many of the major editing suites. Its very flexible and every functional aspect of the software can be configured to work with any hardware setup. You can export to any of the major formats and there are basic plugins for every sort of post-production work come as part of the download.

Just so you know, the interface is very plain but that doesn't really matter. It can look a little confusing at first but the help file is great and the downloadable manual really does a good job of hand holding you through the intricacies of the app.

Using Audacity to create a downloadable lecture on my website

Hi. I'm a newbie. I'm trying to create downloadable lectures for my website using a microphone and Audacity. The problem is that when I string my audio tracks together they make a visually endless line that is really hard to work with. Can the visual image of the tracks be manipulated so I can more easily move back and forth between them, edit them and rearrange them?
