Audacity is a free and open-source digital audio editor and recording application software, available for Windows, macOS, Linux, and other Unix-like operating systems. In addition to recording audio from multiple sources, Audacity can be used for post-processing of all types of audio by adding effects such as normalization, trimming, and fading in and out.

What's new in 3.0.0

New Project File

The new .aup3 project file in Audacity 3.0.0 is now regrouping all the various save files into one. Previously, many files were created along with a .aup file to coordinate them. The problem that often happen is the user would move .aup file without the other files resulting in a project with missing pieces.

Note that opening the .aup3 project file should be quicker than the previous method as there is only one file that needs to be loaded from memory. On the other hand, saving will be slower as there is more to do to put everything inside one file. The team thinks the trade off is worth it as the users won't lose any data.

Improved effects

Audacity 3.0.0 features an improved 'Noise Gate' effect and a new analyser 'Label Sounds' that can label sounds and silences.

It is now possible to import and export macros. There are new commands for using the last used tool or last used analyser that you can give shortcuts to.

Bug Fixes

The team has resolved over 160 bugs, some quite minor, but others quite juicy and quite crucial to fix.
