wow - that is cool!   muchas gracias!
i had difficulty getting it to install on my laptop.
hi jmkarns:

try again downloading from one of these pages:

audacity's page is in spanish, but if you may install it, in menu "ayuda" (help) you may read all instructions in english.

please read this article in wikipedia:

audacity is a great tool for all musicians.
some audacity's features:
record and play audio files,
edit audio files,
import and export audio files,
multi track mixing,
converting cassettes, tapes, or records, into digital tracks in .wav files, removing noises and clicks.
changing pitch, maintaining speed,
changing tempo, maintaining pitch,
adding effects to a recording,
ant lots of more features.
i'm amazed no one has already bought this up, i've had it for years its great!

audacity is under a license called gpl, gnu public license. the gpl protects its code and all derivatives from ever becoming proprietary.
it is a very very powerful license.  
in short, the rights can be bought, but the buyer will still have to give away the source code.
i think he meant "brought"
haha. ok, sorry for the un-invited lecture.
good point anyway by knotty.. i run audacity on linux, also under's always free, and freely modifiable if you know what you're doing. i closed the window on microsoft 5 years ago. if you like macintosh, you'll love linux.
yeah sorry, my bad grammar, brought is what i meant!  lol
by the way, audacity is okay for a free program, but have you seen reaper?  reaper is quickly becoming the tool of choice for many musicians because it's:
1. $50 for the non-commercial use license
2. super light (small file size)
3. modern (vst, vsti, midi, a proper mixer, etc)
4. did i mention $50 for the non-commercial use license?

the audio performance is rated one of that fastest and most efficient.  but anyway, at $50, i think it's a steal.  i've tested tracking some small projects on it.  the midi automation is a little questionable if you're into that.  but i don't think most people here would need it.  for straight forward audio recording, and straight forward midi tracking, reaper is just about as good as cubase or logic.  but it's cheap enough to not make your wife mad.
my wife is already mad, since i am mad about music.  thanks for the
reminder kensuguro, maybe when i get the lights installed in our kitchen i can bolt for the $50 deal.
the problem with audacity is that you can not use midi playback
