Our computers are useful for creating and editing multi-media files. If you’re looking to record a podcast, conversation, music or webinar; or if you just need a tool to assemble and convert some audio samples, it’s tough to go wrong with Audacity. Audacity lets you easily import, mix, and combine audio tracks (stereo, mono, or even multitracked recording) and render the output as one.

Audacity is a sound recorder and imports and exports AC3, AAC, AIFF, AU, FLAC, MP3, WAV and Ogg Vorbis files. The KatyCare third party updater installs Audacity and keeps it up to date.

Audacity has been widely used by schools since it’s release nearly 20 years ago, so there are many resources available to help you take advantage of its features. Here are a few we recommend:
