2.1.031 Mar 2015 02:45 major feature: Audacity 2.1.0 replaces all previous versions. For a long time, we have wanted Real-Time Preview for effects. It seemed nearly unachievable without major restructuring. But with Audacity 2.1.0, we have it in LADSPA, VST, and Audio Unit (OS X) effects. Much improved Noise Reduction effect replaces Noise Removal. Lots of other improvements to effects, including: VST: FXB preset banks, hosting multiple plugins. All effects can now be used in Chains, and can be sorted on name, publisher, or class. Most Nyquist effects now have Preview button. Redesigned Meter Toolbars show a lot more information in smaller area. Spectral Selection in Spectrogram view.
