A customised version of Audacity ® A free sound editor, DarkAudacity is the well known Audacity sound editor now with a darker more modern theme - and a few small tweaks. The audio engine underneath is the same audio engine. The same code powers it. Like Audacity it is completely free. It's not a cut down trial evaluation version. You can record and play sounds, edit sounds, apply audio effects and save what you create for ringtones, podcasts and more. DarkAudacity is Open Source. Audacity and DarkAudacity come from a community effort. Many people have contributed to the audio code. Because they are Open Source, anyone is allowed to read and modify the source code. DarkAudacity is a variation on the Audacity software, made possible because Audacity is Open Source. The Differences - Quick Version Feedback from Audacity users is that they have no difficulties finding their way around in DarkAudacity. The menus have been rearranged, but the functions you need are still there. The Sync-Lock button has gone. Use Time-Lock from the Tracks menu instead. Recording adds to the end of your track, unless you hold shift down when you click 'Record', in which case it adds below. You won't get 'stuck in pause' now. Many items that were previously forbidden in pause are now allowed, and end pause when you click them. Some toolbars are hidden by default. If you want them you need to use View->Toolbars to enable them. And now... Version 2.3.2x of DarkAudacity has arrived. Many of the changes of 2.1.3x DarkAudacity are now optional settings in Audacity. You may have to dig for them, but they are now in Audacity itself. Meanwhile DarkAudacity has moved on. The intention is to continue to put pressure on Audacity to become sleeker and easier to use. Three Audacity toolbars, each with a 'microphone' and 'speaker' icon, have been combined into one toolbar. This removes clutter. It saves space. This recombination in DarkAudacity also solves the problem of 'which toolbar do I need?'. I have provided a new LED style for the meter. The LEDs make it easier to see when distortion of your audio is starting. I have added a new larger time display. It makes it easier to see the recording or playing time from a distance, e.g. when playing an instrument, with your laptop screen some distance away.
