This page provides links to projects and products that are related in functionality to Audacity.
Peter 15Dec16: Apart from the Sourceforge listings there is no reciprocity, no quid pro quo, that I can ascertain on any of these sites that we link to. None of them sems to carry any link back to us nor even a mention of us.
  • Part of the problem with listing links like these is that such pages require very regular maintenance to ensure that the links are stiil working and that the sites are still active and the projects/products maintained. My recent examination of the Audacity Website (from which this page is cloned) shows that such maintenance has probably not neen taking place on the Website.

  • Mixxx DJ s/w Site looks reasonably up-to-date (copyright notice is stuck at 2015) nice-looking site

More free audio software at SourceForge.net

Peter 15Dec16:
  • Audio Editors

  • Audio Analysis

Audacity is in each of these three lists and comes top by a factor of at least 10x over its nearest neighbour. The version of Audacity is 2.1.0 though, there is a URL listed for our pukka download page on our website but it is not a clickable link.

Open Source Audio-Visual Software

  • Blender is a free, cross-platform 3D content creation suite for animations, interactive applications and video games.

Peter 14Dec16:
  • Blender looks well-tended and well-loved
  • MediaInfo looks up-to-date and maintained
  • VLC media player looks well-tended and well-loved - has a download counter that updates (a lot) as you watch it
