Best Free Audio Editing Program

by James 28 November 2008 2 Comments

Freeware Mission, it’s the audio day. After picking the best audio CD ripper I’m going to choose the freeware which will allow me to edit the audio files. Which is the best free audio editor? Well, there isn’t much competition, I’ll tell you that.


It’s Audacity, of course. It’s an open source program, powerful enough to suit my audio editing needs.


It’a available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms, and it’s one of the best freeware programs overall. While using it I kept asking myself: is it free, is it really free? Well, believe it or not, it is. The feature list is overwhelming, you can record stuff from microphones or other sources, edit WAV, AIFF, AU and Ogg Vorbis files, export your audio file as MP3, intuitive editing interface. If that’s not enough you can add some plug-ins to make it even better.

You can download Audacity from here, it’s free!
