Audacity 3.5 now allows you to save projects in the cloud and has automatic tempo detection

Audacity 3.5.0

When I was trying to be a rock star, about a decade ago, the first thing I did in my DAW was put on a background rhythm pattern, start playing my guitar or bass, and record what came out to me. Badly done, because then the lines of the compasses and all those guides were out of place. I had to look at what tempo I had used, readjust the project and then have all the pieces in place. The software is improving, and now there are options that detect this automatically, and Audacity 3.5.0 It is capable of this and much more.

Audacity 3.5.0 arrived a few moments ago with three new features that stand out from the rest. But the one that catches my attention the most is a new feature where when you drag an audio track into an empty project, Audacity will detect the tempo and adjust the project to have that base. I say in theory, because I have tested it in the AppImage for Linux and I haven't seen any query for this.

What's new in Audacity 3.5.0

  • They have introduced a cloud save feature that allows you to save projects on This will allow us to start working on one team and finish on another.
  • Automatic tempo detection. When we drag an audio track, it should display a query in case we want the project tempo to change to that of that audio. The secret is to use loops or bases with a clear tempo. In the following image you can see that the tempo is in place, and it is something that Audacity 3.5.0 has detected. To achieve this, I downloaded an audio of a drum base from YouTube. If it is not perfect, it is because the drums are played by hand (it is not a drum machine). The audio can be extracted from the sound itself, making a kind of calculation, and also from the track's metadata, as long as it is included. ..

Tempo reset

Among the rest of the news:

  • It is now possible to change the pitch of an audio non-destructively by pressing Alt + Up/Down Arrows. It is also available from the right click/pitch and speed menu.
  • Added the ability to export tags as subtitle files.
  • Added an option to skip plugin scanning.
  • Added an overflow menu and speed and pitch indicators for clips.
  • Various changes to various features.
  • Removed some niche features to simplify the app. This should make Audacity a little less overwhelming to use, and will also speed up future development as fewer things have to be considered.

Now available

Audacity 3.5.0 is a new medium version that has arrived six months from the earlier version y It is now available from their website. From there, Linux users can download an AppImage. In the next few hours, its flatpak and snap packages will be updated – I doubt this one a bit, since it is still in v3.1.3 – and it will also reach the official packages of some Linux distributions.
