Another one of those Sourceforge beauties is the free digital audio editor Audacity. One of my many Unfinished Projects consists of a remix project between an ambient British collective and one of those dinosaurs of rock. Audacity is the program I made it with and, no, the results are for my MP3-player alone and not free for download. Audacity is, of course, free and can be downloaded from Sourceforge if that page is not down as it is now, the moment I write this.
Some of Audacity's features include (I pinched this from Wikipedia):
- Importing and exporting WAV, MP3 (via the LAME MP3 Encoder, downloaded separately), Ogg Vorbis, and other file formats
- Recording and playing sounds
- Editing via Cut, Copy, Paste (with unlimited Undo)
- Multi-track mixing
- Digital effects and effect plug-ins. Additional effects can be written with Nyquist
- Amplitude envelope editing
- Noise removal
- Support for multichannel modes with sampling rates up to 96 kHz with 24 bits per sample
- High ease of use
- Large array of plug-ins available
And for the first time in over year or so, the Audacity team has now updated their product, so why don't you give it a go and meddle around with it...
