What do you like best?
Audacity is an extremely useful tool, a bit basic compared to other editing suites, but it offers what is necessary to simplify the audio editing process, and the best? It is an open source program. The interface is simple but it shows the basic controls, and although it requires the user to have some previous experience, it’s not so complicated to work with it.
What do you dislike?
The basic options are easy to understand, there is a certain weakness in the effects menu, because it shows all the effects directly, and this can be a bit confusing for users, because they require some additional help or guidance; Besides that, once you start using it, you discover that exporting formats such as mp3 requires downloading additional libraries, which makes the work a bit tedious, because the instructions are not very clear.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are a Rookie in the matter of the edition, I recommend a little previous reading for the use of the program, in order to identify controls more quickly, the design of it is conservative but quite useful. In my experience, I recommend testing the plugins one by one, test projects are an excellent option, in this way you guarantee a correct understanding of their operation, and adapt your work style to the program.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I currently use Audacity as part of my Audio edit tools, to assemble the audio of a video tutorial, thanks to this I have been able to give effective training, it is simple and doesn’t consume many computer resources, which makes the results excellent.
