I actually never got that email from Voice123, so it must have only affected some members and not others. Sorry you got hit, though--not fun!

Absolutely.
Essentially, 2.0.1 allows you to set up custom keyboard key bindings for most effects that come with Audacity now.

I just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents, as I use Voice123.

I'd probably qualify as a bottom feeder, but I don't know of any other way to break into the industry.
