Audacity is a cross-platform, open source program that allows anyone to turn their computer into a powerful recording studio. Audacity is free, but it can easily do the work of expensive digital audio workstations like Pro Tools and Adobe Audition. The Book of Audacity shows you how to complete fun and useful projects with the software while demystifying geeky digital audio jargon along the way. You'll learn how to digitize your vinyl record collections, create podcasts, record live performances, create super-high fidelity recordings, mix and master multi-track recordings, and create ringtones, special effects and more. You'll also learn how to package your work for online distribution, whether that means distributing a podcast on iTunes or selling an album on CD Baby. With clear, step-by-step instructions and screenshots to illustrate each project, The Book of Audacity will turn amateur podcasters and open source enthusiasts into professional digital audio producers in no time.
