Well, this is not a news that Audacity is one of the most popular software among beginners, who are keen on making their own mixes and remixes of songs and upload it to various video and audio sharing sites. Audacity, however, did not become so popular overnight. It had the perfect mixture of an easy to understand and intuitive interface which was simple enough to keep everyone engaged. The back end had a strong support of the right set of algorithms that people needed for long.
Free, Its Best Feat
This is a free application that has been developed for all major operating systems like Mac OSX, Windows and Linux. It is managed by volunteers who distribute it under the GPL or General Public License. It means that this software is free for downloading, using and experimenting, but cannot be commercially used for selling to other people. This is a multi-track audio editor which allows many operations to be performed on the audio signal. This feature is used by others and exploited to create amazing music and share it with the rest of the world. The liability that it is free to use and distribute has been the phenomenal leverage that propelled its abundant success.
Fully Featured Machine

It really had a punch beneath its user interface. The user interface was no joke either and both of them proved to be a really deadly combination that just sweeped people right off their feet.
