August 18th, 2017.
With a very heavy heart and loaded eyes I write these lines to let the Audacity Community know that our beloved and respected friend and colleague Gale Andrews passed away on August 10th, 2017, for health reasons.
His long involvement with Audacity is legendary. If you ever posted on the forum or sent an email to feedback@ you surely received a useful reply from him… right above a friendly reminder that “feedback@ is not a support address”. Yet he always, ALWAYS helped everyone.
As far as we know, the Audacity Community was his only family.
Please, we ask you to dedicate a moment to his memory the next time you open Audacity.
