Sehr angenehmes Audioschnittprogramm

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Vorteile:

Ich nutze Audacity gerne um Voice overs aufzunehmen, was immer super funktioniert. Schon zu Studienzeiten habe ich damit Studienprojekte bearbeitet und habe immer gute Noten gehabt :D Es ist einfach zu verstehen, man kann einiges damit machen, Ton verbessern und sehr angenehm damit arbeiten

Nachteile:

Hall und Übersteuerungen sind schwer bis gar nicht rauszuarbeiten, dafür habe ich in ein andere Programm investiert. Aber abgsehen davon, kann man damit richtig viel anstellen. Und Hall und Übersteuerung sind ja im besten Falle von vorneherein zu vermeiden.

Kommentare: Audacity ist ein relativ unkompliziert zu bedienen und für jeden zu Empfehlen der gute Audio Ergebnisse erzielen will!!

Vorteile:

Wer eine gute Software zum Aufnehmen, Bearbeiten und Mischen von Tönen sucht sollte sich dieses Leistungsstarke Tonstudio näher ansehen. Ich nutze Audacity vor allem wegen der integrierten "Rauschen entfernen" Funktion. Mit diesem praktischen Tool habe ich schon hervorragende Ergebnisse erzielt. Dank Audacity klingen meine verrauschten Tonaufnahmen wieder schön und Klar!Vorteile: Software arbeitet weitgehend fehlerfrei und liefert mit ein wenig Geschick tolle Audioaufnahmen. Zudem ist die Software absolut kostenlos und einfach auf dem Computer zu Installieren.

Nachteile:

Ich persönlich habe keine Nachteile für mich entdeckt.

My Podcast Got Noticed

5,0 vor 2 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: From the minute I started using Audacity, I was able to turn my podcast into an entertaining program that earned me an audience faster than I expected. I was able to put my ideas into sound only using Audacity. I swear by it.

Vorteile:

The Help Center and countless available YouTube troubleshooting videos made it easy for me to learn Audacity in just one sitting. So I was able to get editing right away.

Nachteile:

There is nothing to dislike about this software. It's unbelievable.

Deserves way more recognition!

4,0 vor 8 Monaten

Kommentare: Audacity is one of the most career-spanning software available. It's used by many professional studios, why wouldn't they? It does exactly what it advertises at a more than fair price.Wether I scratch some ideas in Ableton Live or multitrack in Reaper, I always keep Audacity nearby and opened ready to make quick edits and export them back into DAW. I also use it to record very long audio clips, edit them using the waveform view and tadah! Work done.

Vorteile:

Audacity is the Swiss knife of audio editing. It has anything and everything you could need to chop, cut, copy, stutter or effect audio quickly and easily. It needs no manual (it has one anyway) since it's very intuitive and even a hobbyist will find some way to use it in a matter of minutes. It even supports VSTs, so bring your virtual effects library and enjoy!

Nachteile:

There's nothing I would like Audacity to do that it doesn't right now. It's not meant to mix, multitrack or anything like that (DAWs exists for a reason) it's just good at what it does. Maybe the GUI could be more modern? But who does not like a dose of vintage!

Audacity, a simple and always useful audio recording software

3,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Personally, I use this software to record some voices in low spec PC's or when I need to record something quickly and easily, for these functions audacity is a great option, but when it comes to doing the full project I don't have the tools I would like to have, do I recommend audacity? Yes, but only as an alternative, not to use it as the main software.

Vorteile:

Audacity is that software with most of us start in the audio recording and editing world, its facility of use and simplicity make it one of the most notable options for people who only want to record audio (plus it's free). Personally, I recommend this daw for people who only want to record voices for a podcast, or for musicians who only want to record demos in a quick and easy way, just by clicking the record button we will be doing everything we want.

Nachteile:

Audacity is... very limited, it is good in its main function, but it really can't offer us much more, today there are daw's and free software more complete than audacity, searching in the web we can find advanced options for any musician, especially for people who focus on mixing and mastering, functions that are very difficult to do in audacity.

Good basic audio editor

4,0 vor 2 Wochen Neu

Vorteile:

Audacity has been reliable for me and and is well laid out. I like the way that It comes with a range of built in effects including noise reduction, auto ducking, EQ filters etc.

Nachteile:

Given that some people want to use audio editors for mastering it would be good if they have a decent loudness maximizer (something like Waves L1). I also think the logo could do with being refreshed it looks like it was designed in 1990.

Best software for the starting people!

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: My overall experience is good since I use audacity to record some promotionals and advertising for the company to recruit new hires. This is weekly.

Vorteile:

The best thing of this software is the easy way can be used. Have good elements and is not too much difficult to understand.

Nachteile:

I believe they can improve in the interface since the actual one looks like and old version of an old software. Also I believe they need to explain each features since there's not a lot of information of the best way to use it.

Easy audio editor to start learning

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Vorteile:

It is easy to use. I saw a 5 minutes video and started using it for some audio cleanup.

Nachteile:

I'm not sure if it integrates to adobe, and I ended up moving to adobe audacity. I liked the UI/UX better.

One of the best audio editing programs!

5,0 vor 2 Monaten Neu

Kommentare: Audacity helps me a lot when I need to fix my audio files. The program runs smooth, for me it's a must

Vorteile:

I use audacity whan I need to modify my audio files in a fast and easy way (you can record your file "live" or simply import an audio file you already created). Really useful if you want to cut some parts and/or reduce the lenght of your audio file and add some effects (for example changing the pitch). Audacity is easy to use and allows you to export your audio files in many formats. Highly recommended!

Nachteile:

the interface may look old, but I like it anyway, clear and simple

Kommentare: It's been easy and, I hate to say it, but when my other programs fail, I wonder why I don't try audacity first.

Vorteile:

I had no training, was a "figure it out on your own" situation, and I was able to figure it out.

Nachteile:

It could be a little more user friendly.

Soft Review

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: For ware, its size to my utter disbelieves its a miracle worker. It packs serious agility for anything in its range. It does really edit sound, though concerted ( deals exceeding well with hissing). It is also utterly unbelievable that you can use it so vividly to eliminate unwanted pauses and front noises (breaths though stealing the back sounds), for it just to be able to negate the waves and pick out something for its package size means a lot of concerted engineering. I still stick to aggregates though, like dealing with outdoor takes editing, for it fares well against white noise and all high noises (air hissing) real well.

Vorteile:

An aptly incredulous little audio editor. Not much of a big machine tool but for the aggregate sound guy like a videographer where you are not supposed to separate sound elements but rather desire to leave the aggregated sound clean without separation, it works exceeding fine. It is an ideal little ware that does not even need installation for the most part and it cleans the general sound really well. the other beautiful thing is it can do that to the unamplified sound too, which is generally problematic to sound software, with real good spec inducing, you can bass up or lighten pitch by factoring, so being able to get the right back sounds for your video or single-channel export. Good for the guy who wants an edit of a bundled in an exportable and playable in almost all devices track. the good thing being you are able to convert to a number of consumable formats as much as professional one.

Nachteile:

It is not good for noise separation, as demanded by a sound professional. It rather works well for aggregates, and cannot separate a single sound data to multiple elaborate sounds. in the case of separation, more of a single track enclosed recording ware, where all the unwanted background noises are pre-eliminated or rather a sound aggregate for the video guy.

Free and loaded with great features

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: It is a powerful and versatile software that offers a wide range of tools and features for working with audio. It has been very useful for me, whether I am looking to analyze or restore audio recordings, and has many useful features that have helped me get the job done.

Vorteile:

I have found the Spectrogram view in Audacity to be a very useful feature for analyzing audio. It provides a visual representation of the frequency content of an audio signal over time, which can be very helpful for identifying and analyzing specific frequencies or tonal characteristics within a recording. Additionally, the Frequency Analysis tool has been very useful for analyzing the frequency content of a specific section of an audio signal. It generates a graph that shows the amplitude of each frequency present in the signal, which I often use for identifying and isolating specific frequencies or tonal characteristics, and for comparing the frequency content of different sections of a recording.

Nachteile:

I have experienced some drawbacks when using the software. The Spectrogram view can be difficult to interpret and may not always provide a clear or intuitive representation of the audio. Took me some while to get used to it. The Frequency Analysis tool does not provide as much detail or resolution as I would need it to. Additionally, the Equalization tool can be difficult to use effectively without a good understanding of how different frequencies affect the overall sound of a recording.

Listen, You Have Some Audacity (provided you get Audacity)

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Free apps aren’t always the most user-friendly (just look at all the free graphics programs and compare them to Photoshop for an example), but if they can still work as well as, if not surpass, the premium apps within the same category, then why not use them? For sound design, Audacity is that free app with the irritating UI that monopolizes this space, and if you’re interested in making and improving your own sound files, then you’ll want Audacity in your toolbox. With the ability to establish sound layers, adjust audio frequencies, and create samples, as well as to export the final result into most of the available sound profiles (.WAV, .MP3, .OGG, etc.), Audacity makes sense for any sound designer, musician, game designer, video creator, or anyone in media to have at the ready. And with the ability to label all exported sounds with a profile label (including “artist,” “track,” “album,” etc.), it almost begs the question, “Why pay for an audio production app?” Unless your paid app gives you the ability to turn your voice into a robotic chipmunk, then I don’t know if there’s a good answer for this.

Vorteile:

Besides being free, Audacity comes with so many bells, whistles, and buttons that any competent sound designer will feel right at home. Because it’s open sourced (I think), it’s also adaptable with plugins, which you may want provided you can find some good ones online. And, of course, you can adjust layers and sound profiles, as well as export to your preferred format (provided you have the right codecs for such a thing—Audacity doesn’t come with those). It’s quite versatile.

Nachteile:

If you’re a newbie, then you’ll probably feel lost without going through some online tutorials. Likewise, if you’re not a sound designer by trade, you may not appreciate the power that Audacity brings to the table. (I’m not a sound designer, so I know I’m in over my head at times.) The user-interface can also complicate a simple process like joining two audio clips together. But, again, it’s free, so who’s complaining?

Edit your audio clips for free in Audacity.

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I started using it 3 years ago, and I was very impressed with it in dealing with the audio files that I work on and extracting quality in terms of beauty and high quality.

Vorteile:

The nice thing about the program, which I like a lot, is that it's free, has powerful extras like paid software, and works on Windows, Linux, and Mac. You can make an audio recording directly through the program itself, and this saves time and effort It supports a lot of sound effects that you can use for free, namely removing noise and distortion from audio, adding FFT technology to audio technology, increasing and improving its quality, and adding echo effects. Supports keyboard shortcuts to speed up work and save your time, and it is very suitable for beginners because it processes the audio at a high speed, so you will not consume long time in editing the audio while providing the highest possible sound quality.

Nachteile:

I wish that colors would be added to the tracks that were added, so that what type of tracks used for the user would be distinguished

What is Audacity DAW

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The greatest free audio editing software (DAW) at the moment is Audacity. Most projects may be completed with this open-source software, which receives frequent updates. It supports a large number of plug-ins, is simple to learn, and is arguably the finest DAW to begin using when beginning any kind of audio editing.

Vorteile:

simple waveform editing without a lot of prior audio editing experience. The UI is quite basic, but also incredibly minimalist. This lessens the impression of being overtaken by the task. It works with all significant audio sources and handles various audio formats exceptionally well.

Nachteile:

The UI is fairly straightforward, however it's not particularly attractive. The program might be improved by adding more eye-catching visuals. For what it is, the functionality has never been lacking, but there haven't been any significant updates in a while. Although the community's support network is quite outstanding, it may be somewhat frightening to navigate through. For new users, having better standardized support resources would be advantageous.

An all-time classic that never gets outdated.

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I've been using Audacity for nearly two decades now. When podcasts were something that radios wouldn't publish on their websites, I was part of a community that did the job of recording and "slicing" the most interesting parts of the programs of a new radio station which couldn't afford doing that job. And the program we used to do that was Audacity. Since that time, everytime I needed reliable software to edit audio files, I always came back to my trusted friend Audacity. It never disappoints. I use it now for my current job as a language teacher, in order to create my own podcasts or audio files to integrate in my videos or exercises for my students.

Vorteile:

Best possible price (free). Easy to use and short learning curve. User friendly, yet effective. For a non professional use, it's better than most. For a professional use, there are better options, but there are also really expensive programs that are worse than Audacity. Reliable, solid and continuously updated.

Nachteile:

I honestly have zero bad things to mention about this software. Could it be better? Yes, but having in mind the price (free), it's difficult. Asking for the moon, it would be great if Audacity could be used also as a proper audio file converter. That would make it even more awesome.

High quality audio capture

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Audacity is a very good app especially for companies like ours where we deal with a lot of audio editing, once it is properly configured and understood how it works it captures high quality audio directly from the built in audio channel, thus eliminates static or background noise often generated by other apps that records from external speakers

Vorteile:

It is one of the best audio capture app as it able to use direct channel audio capturing, the sound is then very clear and without static. Once a sound is captured it can be saved in any of the more popular audio formats. It is a free app and also has a fairly good support community forum where you can get help.

Nachteile:

It also requires the integration of other apps such as Soundflower for direct audio capturing therefore makes it a bit complicated to setup and to understand especially for beginners. Audacity also has to be configured properly to capture the sound from Soundflower. Also the user interface is a bit outdated, more like old school style, also does not have too many functionality. Most people only use it for direct audio capture and not much else

Good Audio Editing Software

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, Audacity has been the perfect fit for voice narration. I've narrated over 100 instructional videos with this software with a lot of positive feedback about the clarity and quality of the audio,

Vorteile:

You don't need a lot of experience with audio editing to use Audacity. The learning curve is quite small. The noise removal and normalization tools/effects are simple and powerful. It's a great way to learn the basics of audio editing.

Nachteile:

The interface isn't particularly attractive and some of tools can be a little tedious to switch between. I've also found that if there are too many other programs running at once, it can inhibit Audacity's performance.

Best software for those who wants to learn about audio production

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I didn’t have bad experiences with Audacity. I needed some time to learn how to use the software at all, but after that I just do all of my recordings in Audacity and I never had any stability and functionality problems.

Vorteile:

Audacity is a software which gives you access to most important audio tools and post processing plugins such as Revert, EQ, Compressor and many more. Recording audio and cutting it is really easy to learn. Very important to say is that this software is free to download what’s really great from developers and they are still working on the software ( Audacity is regularly updated)

Nachteile:

Audacity would be even better if a user could record multiple channels in the same time ( like in Cubase) I personally don’t like the look of the program. It’s quite basic design without colors , it looks old and out of dated. It would be nice if the users would get in some next updates some changeable skin of the program.

Simple and professional audio editor

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I mainly use it to record my voice and edit it, I also use it to fix the sound of my videos, it works well for my needs, it gives a lot of value for a free tool.

Vorteile:

It's free software with many audio edit tools You can use it as a voice recorder with a microphone and also record sounds from the computer itself there are many effects and tools to change or fix your sound, I use it many times to clean the annoying "HISSS" noise from my tracks You can easily import and export your sounds with the formats: MP3, WAV, OGG, and MIDI and you can also use it as a sound format converter There is multi-language support.

Nachteile:

It's not very user-friendly at the start, you need to use some tutorials on the web but it's not difficult to find, I recommend to start using it and looking for tutorials for your specific edit needs.
