Tenacity is an easy-to-use multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, macOS, Linux and other operating systems. It is built on top of the widely popular Audacity and is being developed by a wide, diverse group of volunteers.

Are you coming from Audacium or Saucedacity? You're in the right place! We'd like to welcome all Audacium and Saucedacity users to Tenacity and our community. We've implemented new features from Audacity 3.1 to make editing easier. Additionally, we've preserved the themes of these two forks with only very slight modifications so they look better with our new editing features and slight track changes.


  • Recording from audio devices (real or virtual)
  • Export / Import a wide range of audio formats (extensible with FFmpeg)
  • High quality including up to 32-bit float audio support
  • Plug-ins providing support for VST, LV2, and AU plugins
  • Scripting in the built-in scripting language Nyquist, or in Python, Perl and other languages with named pipes
  • Editing arbitrary sampling and multi-track timeline
  • Accessibility including editing via keyboard, screen reader support and narration support
  • Tools useful in the analysis of signals, including audio


Our project initially started as a fork of Audacity as a result of multiple controversies and public relation crises, which you can find out more about here:

Nevertheless, the goal of this project is to pick up what the original developers of Audacity the decades-long work by the original creators of Audacity and create an audio editor that is fresh, more modern, convenient and practical to use, with the help and the guidance of our users and our community.

#Differences from Audacity

Tenacity is not merely an Audacity fork that removes error reporting and update checking, although it might seem like it. We have been hard at work implementing our own features and fixes and want to take Tenacity in a direction our users and community like. So far, we have fulfilled part of this endless goal by implementing the following:

  • New, modern themes.
  • Improved support for more platforms such as Haiku.
  • Matroska importing and exporting without needing FFmpeg.
  • Support for importing, editing, exporting Matroska chapters as label tracks.
  • Sync-lock improvements, including the ability to temporarily override sync-lock.
  • Horizontal scrolling in the Frequency Analysis window.
  • Under-the-hood changes, such as a revamped build system allowing for modern upstream dependencies.

More changes are yet to come, big or small. We are always welcoming contributions to Tenacity, no matter how big or small, feature or fix. For more info, see the Contributing section.

#Package Matrix

Packaging status


The latest official version of Audacity that does not implement telemetry is 3.0.2. Some Linux-based operating systems also ship Audacity with telemetry and networking features disabled by default.

Downloads for these versions can be found on the Audacity website. If you're looking for support regarding these versions, it may be worth consulting Audacity's forum or Audacity's wiki.

#Getting Started

Build instructions for Tenacity are available in the BUILDING.md file.


To start contributing, please consult the CONTRIBUTING.md file.

If you are planning to make a big change or if you are otherwise hesitant as to whether we want to incorporate something you want to work on in Tenacity itself, simply open an issue about it in our Codeberg issue tracker. We can discuss it and work together, so that neither our time or your time and hard effort goes to waste.

Note that we don't require a corresponding issue for each pull request.
