Dark Audacity Project Progress

DarkAudacity is a project to overhaul the Audacity UI. Its released features arrive in Audacity about a year later.


We had many proposals for menu rearrangement.
  • We did not reach agreement through discussing the proposals and mock ups.
  • However, the changed menus in DA were seen to be step forward, and agreed as suitable for Audacity.
  • The UI changes required considerable work on images in the manual.

DA Integration

Many changes from Dark Audacity has been integrated into Audacity.
  • We took over a year to release Audacity with the changes already released in 2016 in DA.
  • We made further changes/enhancements in porting the changes.
    • We added a new 'select' menu to the menus.
    • We made the themes selectable, providing Dark, Light, Classic and High-Contrast
