📕 Description [fr]

Un logiciel multi-plateforme d'enregistrement et d'édition de sons, par l'Audacity Developer Team (initié par Dominic Mazzoni et Roger Dannenberg).
En C/C++.

Audacity est un logiciel libre et multi-plateforme d'édition sonore multi-pistes, permettant l'enregistrement (ou la reprise d'un fichier existant), l'édition (couper, copier, coller, effacer, mixer) et l'application de différents filtres et effets (pitch, tempo, réduction de bruit, égaliseur, filtres de Fourier, fréquence, compression, amplification, normalisation, écho, phaser, wahwah, inversion, …). Son système de plug-ins lui permet l'ajout de fonctionnalités externes (support de LADSPA, VST, Nyquist, VAMP, ...). C'est un logiciel mature offrant des tonnes de possibilités.

Audacity(R) est un éditeur, enregistreur et mixeur audio numérique libre et ouvert (multi-plateforme). Il s'agit d'une application logicielle mature, qui est livrée avec une longue liste de fonctionnalités telles que :

- l'enregistrement (à partir d'un microphone ou d'une table de mixage)
- importation/exportation de fichiers WAV, AIFF, AU, FLAC, MP3 (via l'encodeur LAME) et Ogg Vorbis
- édition avancée (commandes couper, copier, coller, supprimer avec "Undo" et "Redo" illimités, mixage multipiste)
- effets numériques (modification de la hauteur, suppression des bruits de fond, modification des fréquences, suppression des voix, création de voix off pour les podcasts, etc.) et plug-ins (prise en charge de LADSPA, Nyquist, VST Audio Unit, y compris les plug-ins d'analyse VAMP).

La liste complète des fonctionnalités d'Audacity(R) se trouve sur sa page d'accueil officielle. Ce logiciel est sous licence GNU General Public License (GPL), offre un support pour plus de 20 langues et fonctionne sous Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X et Linux.

Éditeur audio rapide multi plate-forme

Audacity est un éditeur audio multi-pistes pour Linux/Unix, MacOS et Windows. Il est conçu pour pouvoir facilement enregistrer, lire et modifier les fichiers audio numériques. Audacity se distingue par ses effets numériques et ses outils d'analyse de spectre. La modification est très rapide et permet d'annuler et de restaurer à volonté les opérations effectuées.


🌍️ Wikipedia :

Audacity est un logiciel libre pour la manipulation de données audio numériques. Audacity permet d'enregistrer du son numérique par le biais des entrées ligne/micro/cd des cartes sons. Il permet d'éditer (copier, coller, sectionner…) les sons sur plusieurs pistes, et il est accompagné de divers filtres et effets : pitch, tempo, réduction de bruit, égaliseur, filtres de Fourier, augmentation de fréquences précises, compression, amplification, normalisation, écho, phaser, wahwah, inversion…

L'auteur de Audacity, à l'origine, est Dominic Mazzoni, de l'Université Carnegie-Mellon et travaillant actuellement chez Google. Au total, une vingtaine de développeurs et une trentaine de traducteurs participent ou ont participé à ce projet.

Régulièrement amélioré et complété, c'est aujourd'hui une alternative crédible à de nombreux éditeurs de son amateurs ou semi-professionnels, comme fut sound edit (Macromedia).

Fast, multi-platform audio editor

Audacity is a multi-track audio editor for Linux/Unix, MacOS and Windows. It is designed for easy recording, playing and editing of digital audio. Audacity features digital effects and spectrum analysis tools. Editing is very fast and provides unlimited undo/redo.

Supported file formats include Ogg Vorbis, MP2, MP3, WAV, AIFF, and AU.


🌍️ Wikipedia:

Audacity is a free open source digital audio editor and recording computer software application, available for Windows, OS X, Linux and other operating systems. Audacity was started in the fall of 1999 by Dominic Mazzoni and Roger Dannenberg at Carnegie Mellon University and was released on May 28, 2000 as version 0.8.

As of 10 October 2011, it was the 11th most popular download from SourceForge, with 76.5 million downloads. Audacity won the SourceForge 2007 and 2009 Community Choice Award for Best Project for Multimedia. In March 2015 hosting was moved to FossHub and by 4 July 2015 it had exceeded 10 million downloads there.

It is still under active development, and the latest release, version 2.1.2, was announced on 20 January 2016.

Features and usage

In addition to recording audio from multiple sources, Audacity can be used for post-processing of all types of audio, including podcasts by adding effects such as normalization, trimming, and fading in and out. Audacity has also been used to record and mix entire albums, such as by Tune-Yards. It is also currently used in the UK OCR National Level 2 ICT course for the sound creation unit.

Audacity's features include:

• Importing and exporting of WAV, AIFF, MP3 (via the LAME encoder, downloaded separately), Ogg Vorbis, and all file formats supported by libsndfile library. Versions 1.3.2 and later support Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC). Version 1.3.6 and later also support additional formats such as WMA, AAC, AMR and AC3 via the optional FFmpeg library.
• Recording and playing back sounds
⚬ Scrubbing (Version 2.1.1 and later)
• Editing via cut, copy, and paste, with unlimited levels of undo
• Conversion of cassette tapes or records into digital tracks by splitting the audio source into multiple tracks based on silences in the source material
• Multitrack mixing
• A large array of digital effects and plug-ins. Additional effects can be written with Nyquist, a Lisp dialect.
• Built-in LADSPA, VST(32-bit) and Nyquist plug-in support
• Amplitude envelope editing
• Noise Reduction based on sampling the noise to be minimized.
• Vocal Reduction and Isolation for the creation of karaoke tracks and isolated vocal tracks.
• Audio spectrum analysis using the Fourier transform algorithm
• Support for multi-channel modes with sampling rates up to 96 kHz with 32 bits per sample
• Precise adjustments to the audio speed (tempo) while maintaining pitch in order to synchronize it with video or run for a predetermined length of time
• Adjusting audio pitch while maintaining speed and adjusting audio speed while maintaining pitch
• Features of modern multitrack audio software including navigation controls, zoom and single track edit, project pane and XY project navigation, non-destructive and destructive effect processing, audio file manipulation (cut, copy, paste)
• multi-platform operation — Audacity works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Unix-like systems (including Linux and BSD)
• Audacity uses the wxWidgets software library to provide a similar graphical user interface on several different operating systems.
• LADSPA, VST (32-bit) and Audio Unit (OS X) effects now support real-time preview (from version 2.1.0 onwards). Note: Real-time preview does not yet support latency compensation.
• Saving and loading of user presets for effect settings across sessions (from 2.1.0 onwards).

Audacity supports the LV2 open standard for plugins and can therefore load software like Calf Studio Gear.

🕵️ Test (version antérieure à la 2.05) de goupildb :
Je n'ai pas refais de test récent, néanmoins - pour l'avoir testé de nombreuses fois, mes impressions : un logiciel génial permettant d'effectuer toutes sortes d'opérations sur les sons (enregistrement et modifications sonores tel que des couper-copier-coller mais aussi d'appliquer de nombreux effets tel que de l'écho, le changement de fréquence, ...), le tout sous une interface claire et agréable. Un vrai plaisir à utiliser.
Bravo et merci à ses auteurs !


(NEW!) 💡️ Commentaires généraux:

Malheureusement les nouveaux propriétaires du projet on générés une polémique après avoir doté Audacity d'un outil de collecte de données personnelles. Ils ont clarifié le type de données collectées sur leur fil de discussion (voir le lien "GitHub (Clarification of Privacy Policy #1225)" ci-dessus).
