Overview

These are some experimental modules at various stages of development that can be enabled/disabled in Audacity.


Module Status
mod-script-pipe In SVN. Works. Has security implications if enabled so beware. Currently shipped with Audacity since 2.3.2 but disabled by default.
mod-null In SVN. Works! Does nothing. It's just to show people how to write a module.
mod-track-panel In SVN. Worked. Unlikely to be developed further as superseded by AU14 Track Panel.
mod-au14-track-panel Missing essential features.
mod-menu-manager Planned. Feasibility of idea prototype made. Likely to happen in two main stages, one which does the job using a text file, the later one with a slick interface for rearranging menus.
mod-theming Planned. Will be a cut down version of mod-au14-track-panel that just handles the theming side.
mod-experimental-effects Planned. Likely route for new noise-removal, equalisation and compressor that have real time preview and multi-threaded/SSE speed ups.


mod-script-pipe

Transport for scripting commands over a named pipe (a special kind of file). All commands and responses are text strings.

mod-null

Empty module that shows what a module needs to have in it.


mod-track-panel

Experiment with new kinds of track, including tracks with thresholds.


mod-au14-track-panel

New track panel demoed at AU14

mod-menu-manager

Planned module to do arbitrary rearrangement of menus.

mod-theming

Planned module to do theming (taking this out of Audacity itself)


mod-experimental-effects

Planned module for onward development of possibly risky/buggy new effects experiments. Lets us get them to users sooner.
