Audacity is a powerful free program that can be used for just about any audio need. The user community is gigantic, and has a wealth of information online, in print, and in video form. However I couldn’t find a video that walked through every single setting in the preferences menus and explained them, so I thought I’d make my own.
In this Audacity lesson I painstakingly go through every single option in the preferences menu within audacity and give in-depth explanations and examples for each one. This is a great way to learn some of Audacity’s hidden features, as well as have a deeper understanding of the software. Time-stamps below for each section of preferences. If you really want to learn nearly all there is to know about Audacity, I recommend the very highly rated book, The book of Audacity.
