History

Audacity was started by Dominic Mazzoni and Roger Dannenberg in the fall of 1999 at Carnegie Mellon University. It was released as open-source software at SourceForge.net in May of 2000.

Open HUB has statistics on the value of Audacity development. The statistics are set up by us to show only the values of Audacity-specific development, excluding the third-party code libraries Audacity uses.
