"Audacity 1.3 Beta Review"

Have used Audacity, Cakewalk, Magix, Cubase, and Audacity is easiest. But, reverb = hard to apply. It really is an excellent program, and a very stable program. Imports and exports easily. I just wish they would improve the reverb and delay aspects.

Pros
  • Very easy to use. It is a very extensive program with MOST of the features of the expensive programs.
Cons
  • Their reverb (Audacity calls it Gverb) is difficult to apply. If they would just improve the reverb application and the delays for vocals, I could dump Cubase, Cakewalk, Magix, etc.
