Teacher Review For Audacity

I use this to teach basic recording and engineering to my students. It gives insight to my beginning students, and prepares my advanced students for more sophisticated programs.

How I Use It
Some of my Theatre students are auditory learners. They use it to record themselves reading their scripts and play it back for themselves to help memorize their lines. My Music Appreciation students learn some basic properties of sound. My more advanced Music students learn the basics of recording and engineering before they move up to Presonus or Adobe Soundbooth.
My Take
Audacity is great. We have produced cd's for students. It is also good for teaching some basic skills for recording.
