Classic audio editor Audacity revamped

DarkAudacity is a mildly redesigned edition of Audacity, the classic Windows audio editor and recorder.

The program is a branch of Audacity rather than a fork, so shares the same code base. It has no big technical differences to the original project - no extra effects, no expanded file format support - and is instead more about revamping the interface to give it a more modern look and improve ease of use.

For example, as the name suggests, the colour scheme is a little darker and there are new Material Design icons.

The top level menus have been shortened and redesigned, with lesser functions relocated to submenus.

Panels and the meter have had surplus numbers removed to cut down on visual clutter, so you're no longer forever looking at "Stereo, 44100Hz 32-bit float".

There are small practical changes. For instance, previously many functions were disabled when the Pause was down, and you had to switch out of that mode to use them. Now you can just select any of these "disallowed" features and DarkAudacity automatically pops up the Pause button and stops recording or playback.

Verdict:

DarkAudacity is a fairly minor variation on the Audacity project, but it looks better and does have some practical interface improvements. Worth a look if you're used Audacity before but gave up, or you just need a capable audio editor.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
