IMPORTANT: Since recording this video, Audacity version 3.0.2 has been released and is now the production version. When I recorded this video, it was still in pre-release.
In this video, I show you how to create and run a macro that will export your project as a WAV file using a keyboard shortcut and I show you where Audacity version 3.0.2 stores your macros because it’s different in version 3.0.2.
There’s a serious bug in the newly released Audacity 3.0.0. The Noise Gate doesn’t work! You read that correctly. I’ll say it again. The Noise Gate in Audacity 3.0.0 doesn’t work! The good news is Audacity version 3.0.1 will have the fix. In the meantime, here’s a link to the temporary fix. It’s a Nyquist plug-in that can be used until version 3.0.1 is out.
There’s a new feature in Audacity 3.0.0 that’s pretty sweet. It gives you the ability to make a quick duplicate copy of your project at any stage of production. This is good if you want to save your project at different intervals with different names (i.e. different version numbers) and keep the saved backups untouched as you forge ahead on the original project. The uses for this are almost unlimited. Let me show you how it works.
This is the first of five videos I’ll be posting on what’s new in the just-released version 3.0.0 of Audacity. This video addresses the naming convention and the new file structure in this latest version. Version 3.0.0 of Audacity saves projects with a .aup3 file name extension. This is different than previous versions of Audacity and it’s important to understand the difference, so let’s talk about it in this video.
