A great audio editor Simply the BEST Very good ! ;)
best audio editor
Simply the BEST. I've downloaded Audacity on December 2013. User friendly, and with all the tutoriels available on youtube, Audacity is simply a joy to work with. Six months ago, I aquired Cubase Pro 8. But for nothing I would part with Audacity. I still use it often, even for my recording. If you want a reliable audio editing Platform, the Audacity is a MUST.
This is a great audio editor and make shift DAW ( digital audio workstation ). i have used Audacity to edit podcasts and make simple demo recordings of myself playing guitar with ease. This is a great solution for aspiring musicians, youtube & anyone who doesn't want to invest to much to edit their podcasts. The really special part of Audacity in my opinion is the ability to import an image file and use the different settings to achieve texture and strange effects in your photos or illustrations. I import large TIFF images and uncompressed audio into Audacity a few times a week and it doesn't crash or hiccup when I manipulate large files.
Great OS audio editor, thank you!
