The Book of Audacity

Here are some details about the book—new from No Starch Press:

The Book of Audacity shows you how to complete fun and useful projects with Audacity, the cross-platform, open source audio editor and recorder. You'll learn how to digitize your vinyl record collections, create podcasts, record live performances, create super-high fidelity recordings, mix and master multi-track recordings, and create ringtones, special effects, and more. You'll also learn how to package your work for online distribution, whether that means distributing a podcast on iTunes or selling an album on CD Baby.

The book teaches you how to:

  • Record podcasts, interviews, and live performances
  • Be your own backing band or chorus
  • Edit, splice, mix, and master multitrack recordings
  • Create super-high fidelity and surround-sound recordings
  • Digitize your vinyl or tape collection and clean up noise, hisses, and clicks
  • Create custom ringtones and sweet special effects

I'm reading the book right now, and will post a review once I'm finished.
