Tenacity is an easy-to-use multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, macOS, Linux and other operating systems. It is built on top of the widely popular Audacity and is being developed by a wide, diverse group of volunteers.

Are you coming from Audacium or Saucedacity? You're in the right place! We'd like to welcome all Audacium and Saucedacity users to Tenacity and our community. We've implemented new features from Audacity 3.1 to make editing easier. Additionally, we've preserved the themes of these two forks with only very slight modifications so they look better with our new editing features and slight track changes.


  • Recording from audio devices (real or virtual)
  • Export / Import a wide range of audio formats (extensible with FFmpeg)
  • High quality including up to 32-bit float audio support
  • Plug-ins providing support for VST, LV2, and AU plugins
  • Scripting in the built-in scripting language Nyquist, or in Python, Perl and other languages with named pipes
  • Editing arbitrary sampling and multi-track timeline
  • Accessibility including editing via keyboard, screen reader support and narration support
  • Tools useful in the analysis of signals, including audio

The full text of the GNU GPL follows:

		       Version 2, June 1991

 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301, USA
 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.


  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
your programs, too.

  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their

  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute and/or modify the software.

  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
authors' reputations.

  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.

  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.


  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
along with the Program.

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
    parties under the terms of this License.

    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.

  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
    customarily used for software interchange; or,

    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.

  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
the Program or works based on it.

  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.

  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.

  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.

Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software

  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.





	    How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
    Copyright (C) 19yy  <name of author>

    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
    the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
    (at your option) any later version.

    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
    GNU General Public License for more details.

    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
    along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
    Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301, USA.

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
when it starts in an interactive mode:

    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) 19yy name of author
    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the commands you use may
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
necessary.  Here is a sample; alter the names:

  Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

  <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
  Ty Coon, President of Vice

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you may
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
Public License instead of this License.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Today marks a day that will last forever in project history: Tenacity's first ever stable version was released. And before we get to anything, we do recognize odd version number due to historical technicalities with the codebase (Tenacity development was restarted using Saucedacity's codebase, which was at version 1.3 alpha). The work of many contributors has finally been brought to fruition with this latest stable release, and the more than a year long wait for a stable release of Tenacity is finally over.


We want to first start off with those that have contributed to Tenacity. Many different people were involved in adding new features, fixing bugs, enhancing existing features, changing things, and overall just making Tenacity better. Without them, we wouldn't have gotten as far as we did. All of your contributions are invaluable, and we can't express how grateful we are for them.

We'd like to thank the following, in alphabetical order of (user)name, for contributing to Tenacity to help make a better audio editor:

  • abb128
  • @akleja
  • @AnErrupTion
  • @Be
  • @davidkaroly
  • @generic-pers0n (Fine, I'll put myself on the list too :P)
  • @jamesp
  • Mart Raudsepp (for help with HiDPI issues and past work)
  • Max Maisel
  • @n0toose
  • @nyanpasu64
  • @orowith2os
  • @robUx4
  • @TheEvilSkeleton (for Flatpak)
  • ...and many more, past, present, and future!

Finally, we'd like to thank the previous maintainers of Tenacity for their hard work in maintaining Tenacity and allowing Tenacity to be what it is: Tenacious.

  1. Problem: After upgrading, it is possible that all your effects, generators, tools, and any other plugins might disappear completely from their respective menus.

    • Solution: delete pluginregistry.cfg and pluginsettings.cfg from your configuration directory (~/.var/app/org.tenacityaudio.Tenacity/config on Linux under Flatpak, C:\Users\&lt;username&gt;\AppData\Roaming\Tenacity under Windows). You will need to re-enable any plugins you had enabled previously.
  2. Problem: your latency setting reads as samples instead of milliseconds in preferences.

    • Solution: change the unit back to milliseconds. Alternatively, you can use the new default of 512 samples. See the changelog for more details.

If you only use the default settings, it is generally recommended that you reset you preferences.

  1. Problem: On Linux, JACK isn't available using the Flatpak but the appropriate packages are installed.

    • Solution: JACK is supported via Pipewire through the Flatpak. If your distro uses PulseAudio, consider setting up Pipewire if you can. Please consult your distro's documentation on how to setup Pipewire.

      • If your distro already has Pipewire setup by default but you still don't see the JACK option, try installing your distro's Pipewire JACK support package.
  2. Problem: Some help buttons point to nonexistent documentation.

Now, let's get to the change log:


Note: this changelog tries to compare against Audacity 3.1.x, which is what this release is most similar too. Future changelogs will compare against previous versions of Tenacity. The next changelog will compare against this release.


  • Added new themes. We have new light, dark, and high contrast themes in addition to other themes, like the new Pro Tools theme.

    • If you are coming from either Saucedacity or Audacium, you may notice that some of these themes are slightly different as we've updated them for Tenacity.

    • Saucedacity's theme was modified to use Tenacity's icon set.

  • Replace custom cursors with more modern ones.

  • Added a new toolbar edit mode, which hides toolbar handles if disabled. This mode is enabled by default.

  • Flattened borders around toolbar handles.

  • Fixed visibility of the edit cursor when using dark themes.

  • The edit cursor is now drawn over the entire TrackPanel rather than a single track.

  • Remove 'Add/Remove Plugins...' from the Generate, Effect, and Analyze menus. Under 'Tools', the option remains but is now named 'Manage Plug-ins...'.


  • Implement context menus for label tracks.

  • Clips can now be snapped to the edit cursor. This applies when moving or resizing a

  • Added horizontal scrolling in the Frequency Analysis window (#135). Thanks @nyanpasu64!

  • Native (i.e., without FFmpeg) Matroska importing and exporting with PCM and FLAC codecs is now possible in addition to importing Matroska chapters as label tracks (#175, #188, #189, #205, and #210). Thanks @robUx4!


  • On macOS, 10.15 is now the minimum required version. This only matters if you are building Tenacity from source on macOS.

  • The buffer length preference is now in samples by default. You can switch to milliseconds if you are unfamiliar with samples.

    • Buffer lengths now have a minimum requirement 32 samples, even if using milliseconds. (Tenacity converts this value internally based on the current sample rate).

    • The default buffer length is now 512 samples.

  • The default sample rate is now 48 kHz.


  • Added new Dynamic Compressor effect by Max Maisel. Thank you for your awesome contribution!


  • Rewrote build system, resulting in all dependencies being devendored except for libnyquist. Thanks @Be!

    • Replace Conan with optional vcpkg for dependency management. vcpkg is enabled by default only on Windows & macOS. We also disable vcpkg telemetry when enabled.
  • Added Haiku support (#108, #118, and #119). Thanks @davidkaroly.

  • Tenacity now sets the number of frames per buffer instead of suggested device latency. It also uses this value to allocate temporary buffers for its audio engine.

One More Thing...

We have one more thing to say...

Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to look at this page. We don't expect you to read it all because it's a very long page, and this bit only makes it longer. However, we'll keep it short and sweet: your interest in Tenacity, whether it be downloading it, using it, even just looking at our website or Fediverse posts helps keep us motivated. It reassures us that there are people who care about the project, and that there is a community around it, even if it's just people who look at the project. To you, we say thank you.

Until the next release! :D
