17 Tips for Recording and Editing Audio with Audacity | via @buzzsprout
I think I first stumbled upon Audacity in 2001 – I can’t believe that was 17 years ago. That is to say Audacity is proof that even as open-source software if you keep developing you can survive through booms, busts, and industry shifts. I plug Audacity whenever I can – see here and here and here – and it’s one of the first pieces of software I install whenever I get a new computer. And while I’ve never podcasted, this tut from podcasting platform buzzsprout has a lot of great tips & screenshots about recording & editing with Audacity.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
