Upgrade to Audacity 2.0.3 (1-2013) and KEEP your Audacity pluginss

KEEP YOUR PLUGINS when upgrading Audacity

Someday the Audacity developers (those techie audiophiles who are much smarter than me) will figure out how to make your upgrade recognize all the plugins you’ve already got installed.

But it doesn’t always work that way now…. SO

This video will show you how to upgrade to the latest version (shouldn’t matter what version you are upgrading FROM or TO)

AND KEEP ALL YOUR AUDACITY PLUGINS!

Watch it carefully, it’s not really all that hard.  And if you have any questions, contact me and I’ll try to help.


Send me your feedback and suggestions for additional tutorials and I’ll get right on them!

Tutorials for Audacity - Beginner #2 - Open, Import, Save, Export files

Tutorials for Audacity – BEGINNER #2 – New, Open, Import, Save, Export

It may seem pretty simple to open up a file, but when it’s a new program (like Audacity may be to you) it can be a bit confusing. The bottom line is that you won’t be able to make use of these tutorials for Audacity unless you are able to get audio into the program to begin editing. There are two different ways to get audio files into the program, “open” and “import.” The “open” function is used to bring both program files and other types of files (mp3 for example) into the program. The “import” function will ONLY bring in non-Audacity files (mp3, wav, etc.). Those are the kinds of things this free Audacity tutorial will teach you how to do! Here’s the specifics of what you can expect to learn in this video tutorial…

[list style=”note”]

  • You’ll learn how to start a new Audacity project
  • I’ll show you how to open an existing Audacity project
  • You’ll see how to import non-audacity audio into a  project
  • You’ll learn how to save your project as an Audacity file
  • Finally, I’ll show you how to export your project to other formats you can use elsewhere (mp3, wav, etc.)
