Play, record and edit any audio file with Audacity, a slick and feature-rich audio editor across all platforms.
|Small, fast – a lot of audio editing and filtering options|
|A bit of a learning curve – not suitable for large multi track projects|
Audacity is an easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux and other operating systems, developed by a group of volunteers as open source.
Sure, it is not a professional DAW but for a free and light-weight product it provides a whole lot of audio recording and editing features. You want a quick start on learning to work with audio files, this is the product to start with.
I used it myself once to filter out some disturbing noise from an audio recording and was stunned about how well the result was in the end. I learned a lot from the large community and also from the detailed online manual.
One thought on “Audacity”
Not really crazy about the embedded tracking software that being used with the last few versions. Sticking with the clean older versions until the forks are released.
