The Audacity 3.2.0 Audio Setup Button

In Audacity 3.2.0 the device toolbar has been replaced by the Audio Setup button. This gave us back some important real estate in the user interface. This video is a quick look at the new Audio Setup button in Audacity 3.2.0.

The Share Audio Button in Audacity 3.2.0

Audacity 3.2 has a new feature that makes sharing your audio productions quick and simple. As one who teaches Audacity, I’ve lost count of the number or times I’ve been asked to share a project or part of a project’s audio and the number of times I’ve asked others to do the same. Enter, Audacity 3.2. With the new Share Audio button in Audacity 3.2 we can share our audio with the click of the mouse button. The audio is shared on Audacity’s new audio.com website (what a great URL!). I show you how to share your audio using Audacity 3.2 in this video.

Audacity Version 3.2 Apha Build Reveal

Audacity 3.2 Alpha Build is out! This video is an overview of some of changes in this alpha version from the current production version, 3.1.3. This is not a production version of Audacity. The final production version of Audacity will no doubt have further improvements and changes. The stackable effects and non-destructive editing features in this alpha version are a huge leap forward. I want to give a big shoutout to the Audacity Team for bringing us these improvements.

What to Expect in Audacity Version 3.2

Audacity version 3.2 has an anticipated release date of September 2022. Audacity made this announcement on June 11, 2022. I haven’t seen anyone talking about it yet (but I don’t get out much) so this is my own announcement highlighting a few of the significant changes we can expect. As suspected, there are some changes to the user interface but the bigger news is probably stackable effects and real-time effects support. Leave a comment and tell me what you think of Audacity’s announcement of version 3.2.

Future Possibilities For Audacity?

Here’s another preview of some possibilities for future versions of Audacity. The video below was posted on the Audacity Discord server a few months ago and is well worth your time if you’re an Audacity user. My impression is that these are just some possibilities for version 3.2 of Audacity and beyond. Regardless, it seems to me that once version 3.2 is out, the platform will be in place for bringing more of these needed changes and updates in a more rapid sequence. But that’s just my opinion as one watching this process from the outside. I appreciate all the work the Audacity team puts into this product while keeping it free to the end user. Get comfortable and watch the 20 minute video below.

What A Future Version of Audacity Might Look Like

Audacity floated this image out to the world on a couple of social media platforms last week as a way of some of the possible options for a future version. While the screenshot I share in this video isn’t in production, it does give us a glimpse into some possible improvements being worked on by the fine people at Audacity. I think it’s headed in the right direction in many ways but what are your thoughts?
