Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Downloading and installing Audacity (Mac), part of Learning Audacity (2012).
- This course you're watching was originally recorded…in 2012 with version 2.0.1 of Audacity.…This particular movie you're watching right now…was recorded in July of 2015.…Not much has changed in terms of Audacity's features…and functionality since then, and you'll still be able…to follow along with the rest of this course.…But I did want to update this movie on how…to install Audacity due to an important change…in where you can download Audacity from.…To install Audacity on a Mac, open up your…web browser and go to www.audacityteam.org.…
In most cases their site should automatically detect…your operating system and you should be able…to click the "Download Audacity" link,…in this case for the Mac, right here on the front page.…If, for some reason you don't see the Mac version,…or if you want to download, say, the Windows version…onto your Mac, maybe you're going to copy it…to your Windows computer that's not currently connected…to the internet, you can click the "Download" tab…and here you can click "Windows"…
