You may have read recently about how Audacity® was purchased by the Muse Group, and that the entire world may be coming to an end as a result. Some podcasters, audiophiles and down-right cheapskates alike are beside themselves, due to the flurry of news stories flooding the Interwebs claiming Audacity® is now spyware.
Those who use/used Audacity® should also be aware that the Audacity® team very quickly responded to the community's concerns regarding their new Privacy Notice.
Personally, I have other professional audio editing tools, but I still choose to use Audacity® more frequently than others; and I'll continue to for the foreseeable future.
Keep being great & doing great things, my friends!
