Still doesn't display properly reconstructed (sinc-interpolated) waveforms...

Still no native support for 24-bit recordings (i.e. to get 24-bit supported you have to add ASIO support by yourself)?

So I tried it...

It's not only audio editor that draws light background for waveform, but others provide a way to set those to preferred, unlike Audacity. What's nonsensical to me is light background for color spectrogram view, it's something I haven't noticed anywhere yet
Obviously nothing new in deprecated GUI - 10 years later it looks just the same as on day it was announced - forever young

Audacity 2.0 - This is great news as I have always used this almost weekly or whenever there is a recording.

Many thanks to those responsible for this excellent software.  There's nothing even close at the price ( free ).
