    Cheers for the links, I’m a big fan of Audacity personally but these look pretty cool. At the moment I use audacity for university asssignments but I’ll check these out for when I leave and don’t have access to it anymore!

    i like the free audio editing software wavepad,which almost has a similar layout to that of audacity.

    I don’t know why people are still praising Audacity. It is not the best because it is STILL unable to edit in real-time. Like with effects and equalisers, you have to apply your settings and then preview it. If it’s not right you have to stop, adjust, and preview again…and so it goes on,…really lame, antiquated, time consuming and inefficient. There are other editors available that permit real-time editing, and some free ones too like Wavosaur.

    I did try Wavosaur and Kristal a long time ago but can’t remember why I rejected them for something else. Cool Edit Pro was good but now difficult to find since it was taken over by Adobe and transformed into the bulkier (and overpriced) Adobe Audition.
