Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I reinstalled audacious, but that not helps me. What to do?

File a bug with Ubuntu, to add more evidence that Unity and all the Compiz tweaks they've implemented to make Unity work are a total disaster.
Run in terminal:
Choose "Continue, I was referred here by Support" during the information collection fase.
Make a launchpad account and file the bug.
Would you happen to have a dual monitor setup?

yes I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @ 2.27GHz
and CPU usage by compiz always about 20-30%
when i switch off my Audacious load is down.
I can't disable compiz because I think that unity use it.
I recommend you try a lighter-weight desktop than Unity in that case. My personal favorite is XFCE.
