A nice review at the excellent Free Software Magazine. FSF is full of detailed howtos on making movies and recordings with Free Software and open codecs, and a lot of other interesting FOSS topics.
“Audacity is one of my favorite free software applications, and it has really improved over the years. This book covers the latest features in the 1.3.x series, which is expected to lead directly to the version 2.x Audacity. The book covers more than just Audacity, though. In the process of covering several different uses, it also discusses everything from hardware equipment selection to copyright and business problems that may come up in a project. Overall, it’s a good read and a good introduction to Audacity, audio recording, and audio processing.”
