Is there already a release date for 3.0.1, which fix this issue?
Audacity skipped a version to 3.0.2. It's available from the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/

Re: "Wave Stats" plug-in

ACX's test file would fail if I sent to another publishing house, just sayin' I've not seen that happen. We've had multiple audiobook producers here on the forum, and once they've met the ACX standard they've had no problems getting their work accepted by other publishers (without modification). Ca...

Re: Error on playback or recording

I have attached the Device Info file again. Is that the complete output? On my Mac I see this at the bottom: ============================== Available mixers: ============================== Available recording sources: ============================== Available playback volumes: 0 - PCM ==============...

Re: "Wave Stats" plug-in

Are you working with mono or stereo? ACX prefers mono, but last time I looked they said that they would accept stereo so long as the entire book is stereo. the industry standard levels There's the problem - there's more than one "industry standard". If "RMS (AES 17) == RMS + 3dB"...

Re: "Wave Stats" plug-in

I noticed something that may well account for the 3dB discrepancy, AES-17. That document appears to be behind a paywall, but it is also discussed here: https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=504129#p504129 I think the basic solution is a lot simpler than it sounds and is down to the k-m...

Re: "Wave Stats" plug-in

Hello, I have a question for the software creator of this plugin. What type of RMS stat are you using? I need to understand how this plugin is measuring RMS values compared to other tools I normally use. The issue is described in this quote from the Replay Gain algorithm (https://web.archive.org/we...

Re: Can I use Windows Audacity to verify a tremolo speed bpm?

I think that around 15 wps is about right for a fast tremolo / vibrato. I noticed that there's very little tremolo on the first note, so I crudely added a 15 wps tremolo to the first note. Here's "before and after" tremolo.wav Ignoring the question of musicality, I think the "speed&qu...

Re: LV2 plugins missing graphical interface

often take ages to filter through, if at all. Perhaps a bit harsh. Looking at the last three LTS Ubuntu releases: Ubuntu 18.04 => Audacity 2.2.1 Ubuntu 20.04 => Audacity 2.3.3 Ubuntu 21.04 => Audacity 2.4.2 Personally I'm hoping that for Ubuntu 22.04 they will jump to Audacity 3.0.3 or later, but w...

Re: Can I use Windows Audacity to verify a tremolo speed bpm?

wonder if I can find/verify at what tremolo speed a classical guitarist performs on certain pieces. E.g. David Russell played this piece: Not easily or necessarily reliably. However, here is the first part of the recording starting from https://youtu.be/MTIhlf85zTc?t=49 First Track000.png Near the ...

Re: LV2 plugins missing graphical interface

VST support has always been a problem for Audacity due to licensing issues. (Audacity's CPL v2 license requires that the full source code can be distributed, but Steinberg's VST2 license prohibits source code distribution.) Audacity has tried to work around this problem by using open source "VS...
