Versie 2.3.2 van Audacity is uitgekomen. Deze opensource-audio-editor, die beschikbaar is voor Windows, Linux en macOS, kan geluid opnemen, en wav-, aiff-, ogg- en mp3-bestanden importeren en exporteren. Het heeft een ongelimiteerde undo-functie en heeft daarnaast een grote verzameling effecten aan boord, zoals fade-in en fade-out, echo, tempowijziging en ruisonderdrukking. Meer effecten kunnen eenvoudig worden toegevoegd, want het programma ondersteunt zowel vst- als ladspa-plug-ins. In versie 2.3.2 zit Lame nu ingebakken in de Windows- en Mac-versie, is er een nieuwe Nyquist plug-in installer en zijn er diverse problemen verholpen.
LAME is now built-in in Audacity for Windows and Mac
The LAME library, which is needed for exporting MP3 audio files, is now built-in to Audacity on Windows and macOS as a part of the application.
With previous releases it was necessary to download and locate the LAME library as an optional extra.
If you go to Libraries preferences you will see that the option to locate the library is no longer there and the dialog tells you what version of LAME is built-in. LAME is not built into Audacity on Linux - you will still need to acquire an locate the optional LAME library.Select button in Track Control Panel
There is now a Track Control Panel. The whole of an individual track can be selected by clicking this button. Holdingbutton in the Nyquist Plug-in Installer
Aon a Mac) and clicking on the button toggles the selectedness of the track.
This plug-in installer provides a file browser for selecting the plug-in '.NY' file (Nyquist plug-ins are plain text files that have the filename extension '.NY'), and then copies the file to the correct location. Accessed by:Macros - "cleaned" folder renamed to "macro-output"
The folder that is created by Audacity when running a Macro on files, or when an Export command is used in a Macro that is run on the current project, has been renamed to "macro-output" to give it a more meaningful name.
The created folder used to be called "cleaned" (which was a hangover from functionality that used to be in Audacity, bit was removed many versions ago).
For details please see this page.mod-script-pipe provided with Audacity on Windows and MacThe add-on module "mod-script-pipe" provides a programming interface that allows Audacity to be controlled by an external program or from the command line. When enabled, mod-script-pipe intercepts scripting commands that are sent to it from an external program (usually Python) via a named pipe. The experimental mod-script-pipe is now available with Audacity for Windows and Mac. You need to enable it in Modules Preferences.
Preference for "Type to create a label"
The default setting for the "Type to create a label" in Tracks Behaviors Preferences has been changed from "on" to "off".
When enabled "on", if there is already a label track that has the yellow focus border, you do not need to use "Add Label at Selection" or its
Bshortcut to create a new label. Just type your required label text to create a new label at the position of the editing cursor or selection region.
The change was made as some users were confused by: a) shortcuts not working when the label track has focus b) labels not being created when the label track did not have focus.
This will not affect any previous setting that you have, or have made, for this Preference unless you chose to have your preferences reset as part of an upgrade installation.Size restrictions on WAV and AIFF exports
WAV and AIFF audio files are size limited to a maximum of 4 GB. This is a general restriction and not an Audacity restriction.
In earlier versions of Audacity if you exported a WAV or AIFF file that would exceed those limits the file would be corrupted and truncated and this would happen without warning.
For 2.3.2 we have implemented an error trap to catch this and stop it happening. Now when attempting to export an oversized WAV or AIFF file Audacity will not do this and you will get the following error message:
Clicking on the Help button in the message will show the following table in the ManualBug Fixes
