Audio Editing Freedom - An introduction to Audacity

Filed under
Software

Audacity is a sound editing program that puts the freedom to create into the hands of the user. It is a vital tool for audiophiles everywhere who love to record, mix and edit their own music or sound files, and for the average joe who just wants to do a little audio editing.

The nice thing about this program is that you don't have to pay big bucks for a professional level program in order to do that. Audacity provides that answer and fills that need. But what is Audacity?

For certain it's an audio editing program. But what lurks behind its simple, yet powerful exterior. In this overview I hope to give you a small peak at what it offers you, the end user. But don't think that just because Audacity is focused towards the audiophile that it's not also useful for the average user, because it is. But lets take a look at this wonderful open source program and what it offers for you.

First and foremost, Audacity is free. Free as in freedom, free as in money, and free as in free from the entanglements that drag other audio editing programs down.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
