    audacity

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           audacity -help
           audacity -version
    
           audacity [-blocksize nnn] -test
           audacity [-blocksize nnn] [ AUDIO-FILE ] ...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Audacity  is a graphical audio editor.  This man page does not describe
           all of the features of Audacity or how to use it;  for  this,  see  the
           html documentation that came with the program, which should be accessi-
           ble from the Help menu.  This man page describes the Unix-specific fea-
           tures, including special files and environment variables.
    
           Audacity currently uses libsndfile to open many uncompressed audio for-
           mats such as WAV, AIFF, and AU, and it can also be  linked  to  libmad,
           libvorbis,  and libflac, to provide support for opening MP2/3, Ogg Vor-
           bis, and FLAC files, respectively.  LAME, libvorbis, libflac and  libt-
           wolame provide facilities to export files to all these formats as well.
    
           Audacity is primarily an interactive, graphical editor,  not  a  batch-
           processing  tool.  Whilst  there is a basic batch processing tool it is
           experimental and incomplete. If you need to batch-process audio  or  do
           simple  edits  from the command line, using sox or ecasound driven by a
           bash script will be much more powerful than audacity.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -help     display a brief list of command line options
    
           -version  display the audacity version number
    
           -test     run self  diagnostics  tests  (only  present  in  development
                     builds)
    
           -blocksize nnn
                     set  the audacity block size for writing files to disk to nnn
                     bytes
    
    
    

    FILES

           ~/.audacity-data/audacity.cfg
                  Per user configuration file.
    
           /var/tmp/audacity-<user>/
                  Default location of Audacity's temp directory, where  <user>  is
                  your  username.   If  this  location is not suitable (not enough
                  space in /var/tmp, for example),  you  should  change  the  temp
                  directory  in the Preferences and restart Audacity.  Audacity is
                  a disk-based editor, so the temp directory is very important: it
                  should always be on a fast (local) disk with lots of free space.
    
           order:
    
           AUDACITY_PATH
                  Any  directories  in the AUDACITY_PATH environment variable will
                  be searched before anywhere else.
    
           .
                  The current working directory when Audacity is started.
    
           ~/.audacity-files
    
           <prefix>/share/audacity
                  The system-wide Audacity directory, where  <prefix>  is  usually
                  /usr   or   /usr/local,  depending  on  where  the  program  was
                  installed.
    
           <prefix>/share/doc/audacity
                  The system-wide Audacity documentation directory, where <prefix>
                  is  usually  /usr  or /usr/local, depending on where the program
                  was installed.
    
           For localization files in particular  (i.e.  translations  of  Audacity
           into other languages), Audacity also searches <prefix>/share/locale
    
    
    

    PLUG-INS

           Audacity  supports  two  types  of plug-ins on Unix: LADSPA and Nyquist
           plug-ins.  These are generally placed in a  directory  called  plug-ins
           somewhere on the search path (see above).
    
           LADSPA  plug-ins  can  either be in the plug-ins directory, or alterna-
           tively in a ladspa directory on the search path if you choose to create
           one.   Audacity  will  also  search  the directories in the LADSPA_PATH
           environment variable for additional LADSPA plug-ins.
    
           Nyquist plug-ins can either be in the plug-ins directory,  or  alterna-
           tively  in a nyquist directory on the search path if you choose to cre-
           ate one.
