Audacity for Mac OS X 2.0.5

(Dec 16, 2013)

I have used this on a Mac mini G4. The program ran well and the features for editing were easy to use. I never lost any files, although the were backed up before starting the editing process. I did make some mistakes editing and it was easier to just start over from the backup file in some cases. Removing clicks and pops from LP's can be a little tedious if the recording has more than a few of them. It is a good idea to read the software manual and/or print some of the pages on editing. I plan to load this program on a new Mac Mini since it worked well with the older model.

Audacity for Mac OS X 1.3.12

(Feb 17, 2011)

After several weeks of using it, it has lost a number of my nearly completed projects. There are bugs. It crashes. It loses your files. I lost a lot of time and work thanks to how unreliable this software has turned out to be.

Audacity for Mac OS X 1.2.5

(Dec 31, 2010)

SUCKS.... Has a seperate download just to save MP3's. Selecting seperate tracks is either impossible or so incredibly conveluted it seems impossible. Has lots of pretty buttons that don't seem to work. A huge waste of time.
