What famous songs (classical or any other genera) have been recorded and edited with Audacity?

In other words: Do professional sound engineers use Audacity for production releases?

    It's more likely for rough or demo versions to be created by the artist in open source software, but then be re-recorded and processed with high end equipment for release.

Four Tet regularly uses Audacity and to answer Clark's question, familiarity with the software.


Sure, there are plenty of recordings done with Audacity, but why would a professional use it while there are many more functional programs available?

In a pinch, it would work well enough.
