I have an exciting announcement for you. I’m starting a new podcast called The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. It will publish on Monday, April 5th. Once it’s live, I’ll let you know and provide a few links. You’ll also be able to subscribe on your favorite podcast app once it’s published. As a podcaster myself, I’m looking forward to this new venture as The Audacity Bootcamp continues to grow.

This is good if you want to save your project at different intervals with different names (i.e. different version numbers) and keep the saved backups untouched as you forge ahead on the original project. The uses for this are almost unlimited. Let me show you how it works.
This is the first of five videos I’ll be posting on what’s new in the just-released version 3.0.0 of Audacity. This video addresses the naming convention and the new file structure in this latest version. Version 3.0.0 of Audacity saves projects with a .aup3 file name extension. This is different than previous versions of Audacity and it’s important to understand the difference, so let’s talk about it in this video.
