Audacity 3.2 Released with Realtime FX + VST3 Support #Audacity
Podcasters, musicians, and amateur video makers like me will be pleased to know that a new version of open source audio editor Audacity is available to download.
Audacity 3.2 serves as the latest stable release of this capable digital audio workstation, and is, as ever, available for Linux, macOS, and Windows platforms.
The “headline” feature in Audacity 3.2 is support for realtime effects. This is a huge new feature that enables a whole new host of capabilities for this referred multi-track audio editor and recorder.
Audacity itself doesn’t ship with any realtime effects you can use but it will work with VST, VST3, LV2, and LADSP plugins, as well as AU plugins on macOS.
Realtime effects are applied to entire tracks and, as sound is processed in realtime, the effects do not change the underlying sound waveform. Audacity devs plan to maintain a list of plugins at plugins.audacityteam.org, which is the ideal place to look if you want to learn more about the feature and how to use.
