Audio editing help from Audacity

If you would rather work at home (or on your laptop at other locations) on your audio files rather than working in Clark C255, you should probably download Audacity editing software.

It's free. Adobe Audition is not, but Audition is more robust and it's loaded in the C255 lab. The C255 lab is free only on Fridays, generally, so by using Audition, you're limiting yourself to those times unless you buy it for own use.

The first Audio Project (podcast to introduce a blogger) is due on Feb. 18, so you need to figure out how you're going to get that done.

Audacity has a great Wiki site to help you get started doing the basics of sound recording.

If you're going to use Audition, the 390-page user manual also is available via PDF online.

Audacity has a ton of plugins to make up for not having some of the same features that Audition has.

BTW, the Adobe trial version is FREE to download for 30 days. Happy editing!
