This week, we're really proud to introduce our members to a high-quality open source product.
Audacity is a free, easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder.
Many people rely on Audacity to record podcasts. In fact, this series is taught by Jeff Large, a prolific podcaster, who wrote our 5 Part Guide to Podcasting. Jeff is a big user of Audacity for his podcasts.
Audacity is 100% open source and it works on Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
In our new Audacity class, you'll create a simple introduction to a podcast. This project will introduce you to many of the tools available in Audacity.
