Gale joined the Audacity Team in 2007, was a graduate in Economics, and advised us on support and documentation issues. He previously worked in survey research for one of the UK's now disbanded Industrial Training Boards, then ran a secondhand classical LP record business for some twenty years. Gale started using Audacity back in 2005 for transferring vinyl records to computer, and generally editing his collection of digital audio files.

In memoriam

It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that I have to report the death of Gale Andrews.

Gale was admitted to hospital on the 23rd of July 2017 after a long and uncomfortable and often painful illness. He died in hospital some days later on 10th August 2017.

As noted in his own user page notes above, Gale had worked on and with Audacity for twelve years and had been a member of the Audacity Team for ten of those. He had been a diligent worker providing much help and assistance on the Forum and through [email protected] - solving technical issues for many users over the years (including myself when I was struggling to get my own vinyl conversion project up and running and my USB turntable working properly with Audacity).

Gale also contributed massively to the Manual and helped shape its current quality. He also as part of quality assurance did a lot of bug testing and bug reporting over the years contributing thereby to the quality of the Audacity application that we have today.

He was an Audacity stalwart and a hard worker - he continued to work many hours even during the latter stages of his sickness. The last messages on email that we, on Team, have from him were written on his laptop from his hospital bed in the early few days of his hospital stay.

He will be much-missed on Audacity - and indeed already is. Fortunately other Team members have stepped up to carry on with the various tasks that Gale formerly undertook.

R.I.P. Gale Andrews - died 10th August 2017

Another memory

In December 2017 - we got a post on google+ from someone called "Stuart"

I know this is oldish news but I knew Gale in the early 90s from various dealings I had with him as we were both LP dealers. I last saw him in 1996 and was last in touch with him in 2003. He was probably the top classical LP dealer of those times and lived in a terraced house in Watford - there was virtually nowhere to sit down as his house was stacked 6 feet high with LPs. No kidding. I estimate his LP stock must have been worth £200K. His knowledge on classical LPs was unrivalled and I often consulted with him. Yes he did live a reclusive lifestyle - did not drive - moved around on the train and carried bought LPs in old carrier bags. He had the appearance, dare I say, of a tramp - but was well spoken and very cultured in the arts. He was not a man of any humour and generally stuck to business. I had no idea he was working with Audacity and am left curious as to what happened to his phenomenal LP collection. I do hope he managed to sell when he realised he was ill.
