Audacity has announced plans to create a new online manual to replace the current one. The new manual will have a cleaner look and (it looks like) easier navigation. In addition, it can include video tutorials. I believe this would be a huge step forward in the betterment of Audacity. The link below will take you to Audacity's public announcement r…
 
I think I’ve uncovered a problem in Audacity version 3.1.0 regarding sync-lock tracks and the new way of moving audio clips. I use sync-lock tracks on every podcast I do to keep the intro/outro music and narration synched together but separate from the host and guest(s), who are also in sync with each other. When Audacity announced the new way of m…
 
The loop function in Audacity 3.1.0 has changed significantly.

Here's the link to the video I mentioned in this episode: What's New in Audacity Version 3.1.0? -Enjoy!…

Here's a feel for some of the topics in this new course: T…
 
Are you thinking about starting a podcast? What kind of hardware and software will you need and how much is it going to cost? Do I need to sink hundreds of dollars into microphones and other hardware? Do I need to spend thousands of dollars on a studio quality room? How about software training? Am I facing a huge expenditure for software training? …
 
Here's some techy stuff for you: I recorded this episode using my Rode NT1 condenser mic recording into my Zoom H6. I did the editing and post production in GarageBand using the Waves NS1 Noise Supressor Plugin, along with Graphic EQ and a Limiter set to -1dB. I exported it from there as a WAV file and leveled the audio to -19 LUFS with a true peak…
 
I'm back from a month long road trip and while I was gone, I started hearing and reading concerns over Audacity becoming spyware under its new ownership. Also today, April 26, 2021, a new version of Audacity (3.0.3) was released. Coincidence? Let's talk. Here are the links I mention in this episode: Steve Stewart in The Podcast Editors Club on Face…

One of the bad raps Audacity gets is that editing in Audacity is destructive. That simply means that once you edit and/or put an effect on your Audacity project and then save and close the project, the edits you just did, along with the effects you just put on it, are permanent and can't be removed. This is referred to as destructive editing. But d…
 
What's Apple doing with our podcasts? I've had some weird experiences with Apple on my podcasts these last few days. I updated my iPhone to iOS 14.5 (I probably should have waited) and weird things started happening. The latest episode of another show I do never showed up in my Apple Podcast app. But it did appear other places including my wife's A…

I'm always curious about what others use for their podcast setup. I've watched countless videos and listened to a lot of podcasts by podcasters who've taken the time to talk about the recording hardware and software they use to record and edit their show. It's like peeking inside their recording environment and I always benefit from hearing about w…
 
I teach podcast courses on Audacity and a question that comes up frequently has to do with the difference between loudness (LUFS) and volume. It can be a challenge to wrap our brains around, but there is a difference. The bottom line is that loudness is digitally embedded in the waveform as part of our editing. When I level a piece of audio to a LU…
 
Welcome to this 5th episode of the recently launched Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. Today, let's talk about the new macro features in Audacity 3.0.0.

Welcome to the Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. The noise gate in Audacity version 3.0.0 doesn't work. It's broken. It looks like it works, but it doesn't. There's a promised fix pending in the upcoming version 3.0.1 but until then, there is no noise gate in 3.0.0. If there's an upside, it's that the Attack Time has been separated out from the Decay Time…
 
Did you know it's a good idea to press Z on your keyboard while editing your podcast? Pressing Z invokes the Zero Crossing Tool and it's something that should be done every time you have a section of audio highlighted, but before you edit that section. For example, if you're going to amplify, delete, attenuate, or insert silence in section of audio…
