    A good FREE sound editor

    Those of you who make wavs, mp3s etc. and are not always satisified with the results will be interested in a great free editing program called Audacity. It can make your files stand up and do juggling tricks! Go to

    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    Terry,

    I commend your choice! Audacity is very very nice. And to think of all the work put into it as an app, and yet it is freeware.

    Gotta love programmers who love helpingout poor musicians. !!

    Terry,

    Nice one! I make a point of using Open Source software whenever I can and this is a great addition to the toolbox.

    God call!

    I have used it, and it is terrific. I know I have only scratched the surface, but it seemed quite capable, and the price was one I couldn't refuse

    After a tip from a friend, I've used Audacity on and off for a year. A great little app; it's my default player for WAVs and MP3s. It's good for digitally recording audiotapes also.

    I just noticed that this little app is recommended for use by students in the course "Fundamentals of Computer-Generated Sound" at Stanford University (Music 220a). You may already know that Stanford's music department is a world leader in computer music. http://ccrma.stanford.edu/

    On the same site as Audacity you can find another free application called FreqTweak (also used in the Stanford course), if you want to get into the innards of your sounds and analyze the spectra, manipulate the waveforms and so on.

    http://freqtweak.sourceforge.net/

    I just wish those *&^%$*! waves would do what I tell them to do without my having to perform constant surgery.
