Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.3.2nb1, Package name: audacity-2.3.2nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Audacity is a program that manipulates digital audio waveforms. It supports all
common editing operations such as Cut, Copy, and Paste, plus it will mix tracks
and apply plug-in effects to any part of a sound. It also has a built-in
amplitude envelope editor, a customizable spectrogram mode and a frequency
analysis window for audio analysis applications.

audacity: Update to 2.2.2

Changes in version 2.2.2:


    * Dropout detection
      Dropout detection is controlled from a setting in Recording Preferences
      called "Detect dropouts".
      When this setting is "on" (default setting) Audacity will detect \ 
      (brief gaps in the recording) and will insert zeroes into the recording
      to keep the other good parts synchronized. These silent spans will make
      the dropouts more obvious, but keep the duration of the recording correct.
      When recording stops, a Warning message box alerts the user and a label track,
      called "Dropouts", is added showing the lost parts, labeled with \ 
consecutive numbers.
    * Improved horizontal zooming
      For this release we have improved the way zooming using your mouse wheel
      works and provided a new Zoom Toggle function.
    * Improved vertical zooming
      We have added a context menu to the vertical scale to control vertical zooming
      Previous vertical zooming methods (left-click in the vertical ruler, left-drag
      in the vertical ruler) remain available by selecting "Advanced \ 
Vertical Zooming"
      in Track Behaviors Preferences.
    * "Extra" menu
      The "Ext-Bar" and "Ext-Command" menus have been \ 
consolidated into the "Extra" menu.
    * Theme tweaks
      The appearance and/or contrast of a few icons has been improved.
    * Easier access to changing key bindings for shortcuts
      For menu commands that are enabled (not grayed-out) if you hold the Shift key
      and click on the sub-menu item, instead of executing the command the Keyboard
      Preferences pop open at the chosen command. You can then change that (or any
      other) shortcut binding.
    * Language selection in Preferences
      Interface Preferences has been upgraded so when selecting languages the proper
      spelling of these languages is shown with accented and special characters.

Bug Fixes
   * Multiple use of "Save As" to the existing open project can result \ 
in data
   * Crash undoing during record, using Discard button of History window
   * Exporting audio in compressed formats to device with insufficient space produces
     inconsistent/truncated results
   * In Export Multiple, Cancel does not remove the file that is in progress when
     Cancel is chosen
   * Unicode page encodings fixed ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
   * Crash using SBSMS pitch change at low sample rate
   * (Mac) Equalization: "Telephone" curve displays a flat line, no \ 
sound on Preview
   * Toolbars: open undocked if previously not shown, unless Reset Toolbars first
   * Analysis effects that create labels should give focus to label track
   * Control value may be out of range when using FloatingPointValidator
   * Analysis effects produce false indication that a label is open for editing
   * Import Uncompressed File Dialog Incorrect Reference to Menu Item
   * Wave Color not grayed out in TCP dropdown menu when in Spectrogram view
   * Hover indication on note track channel toggle appears on all tracks (when
     they rerender)
   * Installer has old logo for 2.2.1 and 2.2.0
   * Un-muting with a single track unnecessarily activates the Solo button
   * Applying chain to file should zoom-to-fit

Changes in version 2.2.1:


    * Waveform colorways
      You can optionally change the colorway of the waveforms displayed in your \ 
      The setting is per track and not per project so you can have multiple colorways
          in the same project.
    * "Save Other" reverts to "Export" in the File menu
      When we made the menu changes for 2.2.0 we introduced an entry into the \ 
File menu
      called "Save Other" which led to a sub-menu for exporting \ 
various audio formats.
      Many users were confused by this change and found it hard to find where \ 
they could
      export audio from. So for 2.2.1 we have changed that menu entry to be File \ 
> Export.

Bug Fixes

   * Release 2.2.1 was mainly a maintenance release.
     Soon after the release of 2.2.0 we discovered some problematical bugs in \ 
       Bug #1767 - Opening a second project from Mac's Finder produces a second
         inaccessible instance of Audacity
       Bug #1770 - Crash applying certain chain files
       Bug #1783 - Preview fails when selection extends before zero
       Bug #1787 - Auto-scroll stopped working in 2.2.0
       Bug #1765 - Using File > Open to import audio gives wrong zoom level
         and no scroll bar slider

Changes in version 2.2.0:

    * Four Selectable themes provided, with new 'Light' theme as default,
      plus option to customize
    * Many menu changes:
        * Menus Reorganized
        * Extended menu bar provided
        * New keyboard commands for working with clips
    * Help buttons ? in Preferences, Effects, Generators and Analyzers - and
      other places
    * Non-Greying out of effects when no selection (and explanatory dialog
      with help button)
    * Playback of MIDI (and Allegro) files imported into Note Tracks is
      now available.
    * 'Center' option in Selection Toolbar
    * Stem plots
    * Major overhaul to documentation/manual including many new images and
      streamlined text on landing pages for in-program help.

Other Changes

    * Append-record is now the default (use Shift + Record for old behavior,
	to record on a new track)
    * The Esc key now cancels all click-and-drag actions. It also chooses among
      overlapping mouse click targets, which is especially useful in the Multi-Tool.
    * Sync-Lock button removed (use menu item or keyboard shortcut instead)
    * New preferences and preference pages
    * Overhaul of much code:
        * Overhaul of envelope handling code to deal with some anomalies
        * Overhaul of exception handling for greater safety
   *  New Logo

Bug Fixes

   * Major work on bug fixing. 198 bugs that were in 2.1.3 were fixed for 2.2.0.
        * The most serious bug fixed this time round was bug 437 which was
          about what happens when Audacity is recording and runs out of storage.
        * Most of the bugs fixed were more minor, such as bug 463 which was
          about a case in which the numbering on the timeline could display
          incorrect times.

Changes in version 2.1.3:

 * Interface:
   * (macOS) Support for horizontal scroll on Magic Mouse / Trackpad and for
     Trackpad pinch/expand zoom gestures.
   * Pinned option on waveform makes waveform move and recording/playing head
     stay still.
   * Timer Record options to save/export/exit after recording.
   * Scrub Ruler and optional Scrub Toolbar.
   * New shortcuts ALT+RIGHT and ALT+LEFT (move to labels without editing).

 * Effects:
   * Effects no longer grayed out when paused.
   * New Distortion effect (replaces Leveller).
   * SBSMS (higher quality but slower) option on Change Tempo / Change Pitch
   * New Rhythm Track generator (replaces Click Track).
   * New Generator for Sample Data Import.
   * Nyquist effects now significantly faster.

 * Other Changes:
   * Upgraded the PortAudio library to v19 rev r1966.  This gives Audacity
     Windows 10 support.
   * (Windows) DirectSound now records 24-bit samples.
   * (macOS) Audacity.app now has its resources inside it rather than in a
     separate folder, so installation to /Applications/ is cleaner.
   * (macOS) Audacity 2.1.3 provides partial support for Sierra. Details at
     http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Parti … a_in_2.1.3 .

Bug fixes:

 Over 60 bugs fixed, including five longstanding bugs.
