Importing wmv files into Audacity

Audacity’s latest beta (Audacity 1.3.6) will let you import Windows Media Audio (wma) files. You will first need to download the FFmpeg support much like you must download the lame encoder to export in mp3 format. This is great news since the Olympus digital audio recorders the department uses record in wma format. The media labs won’t have this version until Audacity comes out with a stable version so in the meantime you will still need to convert files from a wma to a wav or aif file (zamzar.com) before importing into Audacity for editing.

The latest release also includes other features such as sound-activated recording.
