I just downloaded a recording and sound-editing software called Audacity. My brother recommended it to me; he has used it to do the sound-editing for some of his short films. I've messed around with the software for only a couple of hours so far, but I have to say that I'm impressed. Here's a little blues ditty that I recorded with nothing more than my guitar, my laptop, and a cruddy little webcam microphone.
So how much did this software cost you might ask. It's free? That's right...free.99 baby. How is it that a product that would've been traditionally cost a small chunk of change...can now be given away? Through the beauty of the phenomenon called "open-sourcing". I love it. Here's an interesting podcast about open-sourcing. Enjoy...
