Audacity aims to be a simple to use but powerful audio editor.
  • We have design guidelines to make the user interface consistent and more discoverable.
  • We have coding standards to improve consistency in how we code.
  • We have a vibrant community beyond the developers who support users, get feedback, test and document Audacity.


This is how we get from ideas to new releases of Audacity
Feature Requests   -->   Proposals   -->   Projects   -->   Releases

We always need more developers!

  • Rather than just post a pull request to our GitHub repo, join our developers' mailing list and introduce yourself! You'll have a far better chance of your proposed changes being adapted and accepted. You don't have to have a pull request already. We're very happy to have lurkers on the list. If you are keen to interact, you are welcome to:
    • tell us about any new or improved features you are working on.
    • tell us if you've hit a bug and are working on it.
    • if you'd like to help with code reviews of GitHub pull requests, tell us.
