3  Audacity is a free tool that records and edits sounds  If you need to download Audacity, go to and select Download Audacity instead of Audacity , because the later edition is still a “work in progress”.

4  Import existing music (you own legally, i.e. from Amazon.com downloads) into Audacity so you can edit it  Change the pitch (highness or lowness of sound)  Change the tempo (speed of the steady beat) without changing the pitch  Cut away unwanted sections of music or sound  Record your own sounds for future editing  Export what you created as a WAV file or as an MP3
