We’re pleased to announce release of Audacity 2.3.3 which replaces all previous versions for Windows, macOS and Linux.
Audacity still does not support macOS Catalina properly, but can be used with a workaround. This is because we have not caught up with Apple’s requirements for ‘notarization’ yet. We are working on this for the next release.
Details of the workaround here:
What we’ve done:
We’ve done a lot of bug fixing on Audacity for this release, and a lot of code restructuring. There are a few visible changes too.
- Equalization effect now split into two effects, Filter Curve and Graphic EQ.
- Presets (using manage button) now active/working.
- Can now have two points at same frequency for steep steps.
- ‘What you hear is what you get’ for exports. Formerly the solo button
preferences could lead to differences in which tracks were exported.
- Leading silence (blank space) not skipped over in exports.
- Quality setting on AAC/M4A exports.
- Some confusing functionality removed (better achieved in other ways)
- Removed Nyquist Workbench (use built-in nyquist features)
- Removed Vocal Remover (use Vocal Reduction)
- Removed On-Demand aliased files (copy files instead)
- Removed ‘Normalize on Load’ (Normalize as needed on export, instead)
Over 150 bugs in 2.3.2 fixed, including:
- 2112 – Crash when opening Equalization settings in a Macro
- 2127 – Crash deleting a track while in Record/Pause state
- 2176 – Crash when attempting to time shift multiple tracks
- 2141 – Tabbing between labels stopped working
- 2200 – Refusal to export some large (4GB) files on size grounds
