  • [DNB/Techno] Nass Arrive - peer programmed composition
    This is a track I've been working on with a friend who's crazy about DNB : we've drawn an outline on paper before coding the several loops, recorded with Ardour, and lightly edited in Audacity.

    I'm saddened about the reasons that I need to post this, but Ardour also has a similar privacy policy, that you should read if you intend to use their services:

    Ardour also has a compile time optional "phone home" feature which checks for update announcements, so you should disable that when building if you care about this sort of thing:

    Personal note: I do not consider these things to be issues with Ardour, or with Audiacity. I commend PaulDavisThe1st and x42, as well as the Audacity developers, for their work on these excellent projects. | 2021-07-05
  • Audacity: Clarification of Privacy Policy | 2021-07-05
    Too much ill-will generated with this sudden takeover of audacity. Best to move on to alternatives and forks and forget about Audacity's new owners.

  • Alternatives to Audacity (which may be Spyware?)
    I was chatting with a friend about this yesterday. A little searching turned up Ardour, which appears to be offered under the same freeware licence that Audacity was, while looking to be a whole lot more useful. Non-destructive editing, for a start.

    It does a lot more, but Ardour is dope.
  • Audacity may collect "Data necessary for law enforcement, litigation and authorities’ requests (if any)" according to new privacy notice. | 2021-07-03
    I'm currently looking at Ardour and MuSE as replacements. | 2021-07-03
    There is also Ardour.
