Audacity updated to v2.2.0

Audacity Team

Audacity, the free, open source, cross-platform audio software for multi-track recording and editing, has been updated to v2.2.0.

Major new features – (additional details in the Audacity 2.2.0 manual):

  • Four supplied user interface themes, and customizability of themes for advanced users (thanks to James Crook and the Dark Audacity project).
  • Playback of MIDI files (fully automatic on Windows; requires cooperating software synthesizer programs on macOs or Linux; special thanks to Audacity co-founder Roger Dannenberg and new contributor "pokechu22").
  • Better organized menus.
  • Help link buttons in many dialogs lead to the relevant manual pages.

Changed in Audacity 2.2.0:

  • 198 bugs/annoyances in 2.1.3 fixed, most importantly:
  • Improved recovery from full file system errors; in case of recording, Audacity 2.2.0 will preserve as much of the recorded data as possible.
  • Complete support for macOS 10.12 (Sierra).
  • Thorough update of the manual with new images, more hover texts, and more cross-references.

Full details on the changes since 2.1.3 can be found in the 2.2.0 Release Notes.
