Audacity Purchased by Newly-Formed Muse Group

Welcome to episode 11 of The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast. 

“We’re scared and excited. We hope you are too.”

-AudacityTeam

Those are the closing words on the Audacity Team’s announcement of the recent acquisition of Audacity by the newly-formed Muse Group. The deal to purchase Audacity was announced on April 30th. The financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed. With this acquisition, changes on the horizon for Audacity include:

  1. Non-destructive editing via stackable Virtual Studio Technology (VST) effects.
  2. An updated user interface that includes a non-Windows 95 appearance and feel.

As part of this announcement, Muse Group (https://mu.se) vows to keep Audacity open source and free.

In this episode, I share with you a couple of online articles concerning this purchase. One thing is certain; the future of Audacity means change. Here’s hoping it’s change in the right direction for us podcasters.

The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast is Live!

The rumors are true! The Audacity Bootcamp Podcast is live – 3 days early. Originally scheduled for the 5th of April, it’s out now. It was approved by Apple Podcasts in less than 24 hours which put the whole process into high gear and enabled me to get it published a few days early. If you would like to subscribe, it’s available on your favorite podcast app including iHeartRadio, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Audible. You can also listen on the web by visiting the podcast website. I hope you’ll check it out and subscribe.
