       audacity [ AUDIO-FILE ] ...


       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  accessible  from  the  Help
       menu.  This man page describes the Unix-specific features,
       including special files and environment variables.

       The only command-line arguments  Audacity  takes  are  the
       names  of  audio  files  to open.  Audacity currently uses
       libsndfile to open many uncompressed audio formats such as
       WAV,  AIFF,  and  AU, and it can also be linked to libmad,
       libvorbis, and libflac, to  provide  support  for  opening
       MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC files, respectively.

       If  you specify multiple files on the command-line, Audac­
       ity will import all of them into the same  project,  which
       is convenient if you want to mix them.

       Audacity is an interactive, graphical editor, not a batch-
       processing tool.  There are no options that make  it  easy
       to perform an operation on a set of files.  If you need to
       batch-process audio or do simple edits  from  the  command
       line, use sox.


              Per user configuration file.

              Default  location  of  Audacity's  temp  directory,
              where <user> is your username.  If this location is
              not  suitable  (not enough space in /tmp, for exam­
              ple), 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 disk with
              lots of free space.

              Note that older versions of Audacity put  the  temp
              directory  inside  of  the  user's  home directory.
              This is undesirable on many systems, and using some
              directory in /tmp is recommended.  Open the Prefer­
              ences to check.


       When looking for plug-ins, help files, localization files,
       or  other  configuration files, Audacity searches the fol­
              is  usually  /usr or /usr/local, depending on where
              the program was installed.

              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


       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 alternatively 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 alternatively in a nyquist directory on the search path
       if you choose to create one.


       Audacity is distributed under the GPL, however some of the
       libraries it links to are  distributed  under  other  free
       licenses, including the LGPL and BSD licenses.


       See our website for details:


       The  most serious bug currently is that it does not grace­
       fully handle running out of disk space.


       Primary  contributors  include  Dominic  Mazzoni,   Joshua
       Haberman,  Matt  Brubeck,  Shane Mueller, Brian Gunlogson,
       Vaughan Johnson, Greg  Mekkes,  James  Crook,  and  Markus
       Meyer, but dozens of others have contributed, and Audacity
       would not be possible without wxWindows,  libsndfile,  and
       many  of  the  other  libraries it is built upon.  For the
