Audacity 3.2 features include:

  • Real-time effects: Effects to the waveform can now be adjusted in real-time allowing for more precise editing. The introduction of real-time effects allows users to easily add and remove effects anywhere in the chain, adjust timings, and change the order, all whilst listening to their audio. Now, users can change and edit effects at any stage of a project, making Audacity an easy-to-use multi-track editor and recorder.
  • Non-destructive editing: Designed for more flexibility, non-destructive editing allows users to arrange and tweak clips without impacting their entire sequence. Easily shuffle sounds around and delete, trim and retrieve clips without changes being permanently written into the audio file. Together with real-time and stackable effects, Audacity 3.2 makes it easier to manage multiple tracks and adapt to the user’s workflow.
  • VST3 support: VST3 effects plugins are now supported on Audacity 3.2, providing access to a host of new effects and features. VST3 marks an important milestone in audio technology offering a more streamlined and reliable experience for users.
  • Intuitive improvements to the interface (UX/UI): An improved interface makes editing and recording clips easier and more intuitive. Featuring a sleeker and more consistent set of visuals, users can enjoy a smoother editing experience and increased performance.
  • Cloud storage with audio.comUsers can now directly export files to audio.com and choose to store their work privately or publicly on the cloud. Simply by selecting the ‘share audio’ option in Audacity, creators can set up a free account where they can save their projects for anyone with the link to listen, comment and download.
