The production version of Audacity 3.2.0 was released earlier today. It’s no longer in Beta. Audacity has published a page outlining new features, fixes, changes, and download links. There’s some important information on this page that you’ll probably want to take a look at. Here’s that link:

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.

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.
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.
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?

Audacity version 3.1.3 is out. There are some significant fixes with this release. In this video, I talk about one of them that I had previously mentioned in a video (link below) and reported to Audacity. Namely, the inability to change or delete a clip name without it causing Audacity to crash when using sync-lock tracks. That’s been fixed in this version of Audacity. This only affected Mac users. In this video I’m using a 2017 MacBook Pro running OS Monterey and Audacity version 3.1.3.
And a big shoutout and thank you to all of you! I’ve reached 1,000 subscribers!! This blows my mind. Thank you all for sticking with me on my channel. You all rock!
