I am currently using Mojave on a 2015 Macbook Pro. It looks like I’m going to have to get a new computer but I’m concerned. I read that Audacity doesn’t support Monterey. Is that still correct? If so, why not? Looking at posts here, it seems that some folks are using Monterey and it’s working. I could also use some advice. Audacity has been working well for me except that I cannot adjust the mic volume within Audacity. It’s pinned at max and has been through the past 2 upgrades. I am currently using Audacity 2.3.2. When I get a new computer, should I delete the current Audacity I have and download it fresh? Or just upgrade what I have? Thanks in advance everybody!
No, that’s out of date. The current version of Audacity supports Monterey.
Where did you read that ? Also see this thread: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/monterey-upgrade-ok/64267/1
The current version of Audacity is 3.1.3. Note that it uses a new project format .aup3, so everything is contained within one file. Prior to 3.0.0, an .aup file contained pointers to thousands of tiny .au files which held the actual audio. Audacity 3.1.3 will import the old .aup-based projects and save them in the new .aup3 format.
So I’m thinking the new computer will not have the old version of Audacity loaded on it to begin with. So just download and install a fresh copy from https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
But if you are just updating the old computer, then yes, it is generally a good idea to uninstall the old version before installing the new. You can download older version of Audacity from: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-old.html
Thank you so much!
