Audacity is the premier free audio recording and editing software currently to have ever existed.
As the name suggests, Audacity Portable is a portable application which can run on a Windows system without installation; from external or internal media, Audacity Portable will not create entries into the Windows Registry.
It is freely distributed as open source software that anybody can use. With the removal of Windows' sound recorder, there opened up a huge need for a free audio recording solution and the team behind Audacity took up that challenge.
Version 2.3.0 is a freeware program which does not have restrictions and it's free so it doesn't cost anything.
