    Awesome audio editor you can manipulate just about any sound file. I use a slightly older version and it's spectacular, second to none other.

    A question not related to the software itself:

    Are there any known issues when trying to register in the Audacity Forum with an e-mail address from hotmail.com? I never received the necessary activation link nor did I get a reply from the Board Administrator after contacting him via the form in the Forum. Quite annoying. :thumbd:

    Audacity 3.0.4 Released (August 24, 2021)
    Release Notes
    Download
    This is a hotfix release that fixes a bug with envelope points, which could multiply uncontrollably and cause Audacity to crash. In particular:
    • #1476: Envelope points are multiplied when using Filter Curve EQ or Graphic EQ
    • #1477: Filter Curve EQ will crash if there is an envelope point outside of the selection
    This fix re-introduces an earlier, but way less destructive bug:
    • bugzilla 208 / #1500: Some effects delete Envelope Control Points, or do not move them when timeline changes

    Thanks for the warning

    This camp can be content to wait out awhile for it to become better suited again.

    Latest version working wonderfully! As always it's a one-of-a-kind audio editor in my opinion totally unmatched.

    Seconded. Audacity is the only audio editor that works flawlessly for me, whether recording with the built-in microphone or editing large audio files.
