Audacity is a pretty popular piece of audio software many hold in high regard as a staple in the audio business. While it has been around for a very long while, Audacity didn’t receive official support for Windows 10 from the beginning. In fact, only recently has it been updated to a newer version with Windows 10 support.

It’s a useful tool

Audacity is a helpful tool for those looking to record audio and for those looking to take their craft even further. With it, the user is free to edit audio in a number of ways according to their needs, from mixing and cutting to deleting segments and even adding special effects.

The recording of audio can happen in one of two ways. If the device running the software has a good audio card installed, users can directly record sound through that. However, if that’s not an option, users can install and use microphones that will pick up the desired audio.

It’s more than just Windows

Audacity is available on multiple platforms. Even though one of these platforms is now Windows 10, the latest version also brings modifications and new support for the macOS version too. The company holds both platforms in equal regard with both receiving nice treats with the release of this latest version. Here is what Audacity had to say about it:

(Windows) Windows 10 is now supported (there should be no “Internal PortAudio Error” or failure to find any devices as long as the built-in audio devices are enabled).

(macOS) We now support Trackpad and Magic Mouse horizontal scroll without SHIFT key and Trackpad pinch and expand to zoom at the pointer.
