Audacity fork without Telemetry and with new features

Overview

Audacium

Made by mish1

=========================

Searching for contributors!

I'm currently searching for contributors as I can't keep up the project alone. If you're interested to become one, make an issue!

Goals of this project

The goals Audacium is trying to achieve are pretty simple :

  • Restoring Audacity to what it was before, with no crash reporting (GH Issues exist for that), or very simple update checking (only at startup, not periodically)
  • Adding new features people want, listening closely to the community
  • Make the code base easier to work with, less confusing for a newbie

Audacium is an easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. Developed by a group of volunteers as open source.

  • Recording from any real, or virtual audio device that is available to the host system.
  • Export / Import a wide range of audio formats, extendible with FFmpeg.
  • High quality using 32-bit float audio processing.
  • Plug-ins Support for multiple audio plug-in formats, including VST, LV2, AU.
  • Macros for chaining commands and batch processing.
  • Scripting in Python, Perl, or any language that supports named pipes.
  • Nyquist Very powerful built-in scripting language that may also be used to create plug-ins.
  • Editing multi-track editing with sample accuracy and arbitrary sample rates.
  • Accessibility for VI users.
  • Analysis and visualization tools to analyze audio, or other signal data.

Getting Started

For end users, the latest Windows and macOS release version of Audacium is available here. There is also an AUR package for Arch Linux users. Help with using Audacium is available from the Matrix room or via the Discord server (the two are bridged together).

Build instructions are available here.

More information for developers is available from the wiki.

  • Use newer Windows file-picker

    Use newer Windows file-picker

    I've noticed Audacium uses the older style Windows file-picker when selecting files, which have older icons, UI and aren't theme-compatible with the rest of the OS. More frustratingly, it has a different layout to File Explorer, which makes it a bit harder to find files. image

    Most apps use a newer file-picker, which opens a mini-version of File Explorer. Hence it uses the familiar File Explorer layout, is theme-compatible and also has the latest UI and icons provided by Windows. The following example is what happens when one tries to upload a file to Discord: image

    Thanks in advance!

    Collaborate in one fork

    There is one popular fork that is maintained, but looks for collaborators:

    https://github.com/cookiengineer/audacity https://fosspost.org/audacity-fork-needs-help/

    I suggest you archive this repo, add a link to that fork and contribute there. It does not make sense to maintain multiple forks with the same goal.

    Thanks for your efforts defending free software!

  • Logo / style proposal for Audacium

    Logo / style proposal for Audacium

    Audacium-banner-v1 Audacium-banner-v1-inverted

    Audacium-logo-v1 Audacium-logo-v1-inverted

    Audacium-icon-v1 Audacium-icon-v1-inverted

    Why this logo / style instead of the current one ?

    • Shape: Modern minimalism style (incl. reference to audio waveforms, left/right)

    • Colors: Tasteful & multiple (reference to the spectrum of different frequencies, versatility of app features, without looking like a xmas fair)

    • Usability: Can be used inverted (logo on dark bg, or bight bg)

    • Visually matching name: Audacium.

    "um" means neuter in Latin. It sounds like universum. Or auditorium. It has the feeling of being pretentious. Now in its current state, it's Audacity... without telemetry.

    The 3 key core goals listed are:

    1. Restoring Audacity to what it was before, with no crash reporting (GH Issues exist for that), or very simple update checking (only at startup, not periodically)
    2. Adding new features people want, listening closely to the community
    3. Make the code base easier to work with, less confusing for a newbie

    1st goal mentioned is how this all ofcourse started. 2nd goal is inspiring - and that should be visualized. Might attract new contributors. 3rd goal should somehow be represented visually too. Minimalism.

    I tried to do so for all goals with my proposal. Let me know if you all want this, so I will provide a package with color codes, png/svg, etc.

    NOTE: I made a Adobe Audition theme look-a-like for Audacity recently, see here: https://www.reddit.com/r/audacity/comments/owq5zl/audition_dark_theme_for_audacity/

    I'm thinking of making a new default skin for Audacium too. Keeping the colors used in the logo in check.

    Then create a few different variants, so people can choose which color they want their waveform to be like:

    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Purple
    • Blue
    • Turqoise

    Splash image appears, but Audacium does not open

    Description: Upon opening Audacium.exe after installation using the installer, the splash image will show for a few seconds, then Audacium will not open. Task Manager shows Audacium Cross-Platform sound opening briefly then closing again

    Additional Info:

    • OS: Windows 10 Build 18363.1440
    • Version Audacium v3.0.4x64

    I saw a previous issue where the bug reporter had fixed the issue by reinstalling, unfortunately this did not work for me. I've also attempted adding it to my Anti-virus and firewall exceptions which also did not work.

  • Add new colors for WaveColor

    Add new colors for WaveColor

    This Audacity fork needs a facelift in order to stand out (in my opinion). And what better way to do so than improving the current wave color system? Four colors is probably good enough for the basic to mid level user. For advanced users with large numbers of tracks, this isn't good enough. So this commit adds 20 colors to Wave Color selection. There are 2 file patches: AllThemeResources.h and TrackArtist.cpp.

    audacium.seb1g.live (website) theme problems. Hard to read.

    Issue

    I already issued a similar bug on Tenacity, which had a white background website with a dark text. And my browser had some trouble with it. Probably since I'm using a global dark theme.

    A lot of people might use similar themes. And if the background of the page is undefined the problem is that the text is dark on dark. On Audacium site is not that big of a deal, since the text is quite grey. So It's kind of visible. Still hard to read. 2021-07-08_16-52

    Fix

    • Add a hard coded background to the page.

  • Bitcoin is unethical

    Bitcoin is unethical

    Describe the bug Bitcoin is unethical and a bug which threatens the very existance of humanity as it harms the planet through global warming.

    To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. start mining bitcoin
    2. planet gets warm
    3. planet dies

    Expected behavior Bitcoin should not be used for donations.

    Screenshots If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem.

    Additional information (please complete the following information):

    • OS: [e.g. Mac High Sierra, Ubuntu 18.04, Windows 10]
    • Version [e.g. Audacity 2.5.1]
    • (if relevant) Sound Device [e.g. Windows WASAPI, USB Sound card]

    Additional context You know, bitcoin is really bad.

    I'm writing this jokingly, but I'm also serious. I think it's great to have a fork like this, but please do not endanger our planet. Quit bitcoin. :)

    Bitcoin consumes as much energy as whole countries, do you think risking a planet is worth some transactions?

    Most VST plugins don't work

    I installed Audacium on my Windows 11 machine, tried to load all my plugins from Audacity but almost every one gave me an error saying "Effect or command at [path to my plugins] failed to register: Could not load the library". I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Admittedly I'm not a very techy person so I apologize if this has a fairly obvious solution that I'm not aware of.
