Interviews

In this exclusive Linux Pro Magazine interview, tell-it-like-it-is, Linux Today editor Carla Schroder talks about her latest book, The Book of Audacity , shares facts about herself you won’t find anywhere else, a peek into her current projects, and offers advice for women on making their own paths, encouraging children, and more.

Linux Pro Magazine: Can you tell readers a little about you, your relationship to the Audacity project, and how you got started using Audacity?

Carla Schroder: I've had an interest in Audacity for some time. I like making live recordings and then editing and cleaning them up, and I've digitized a lot of treasured old vinyl LPs. It's the same old story—the music industry doesn't care what makes customers happy; they just keep trying to force us into their customer-and artist-hostile business model. I've been into music all my life, and, like a lot of music enthusiasts, have a long history of working around the silly music industry to get what I want.

LPM: What was your motivation for writing a book on Audacity?
