How many of you are into Audio editing often? Often you wish you can record some audio available on microphone, line input, or other sources ? I have been always wary of Audio/Video editing stuff, but many of you love doing this.

Audacity is a easy to use Free and open source tool that can help you record and edit sounds. It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems.

  • Record live audio.
  • Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs.
  • Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV or AIFF sound files.
  • Cut, copy, splice or mix sounds together.
  • Change the speed or pitch of a recording.
  • And more! See the complete list of features.

It got tons of features for editing and recording Audio. Even though I have not worked with any similar software of Audio or Video editing , this one looks great with the features it provide for almost everything you need for Audio editing. One thing to note though here that Audacity does not currently support WMA, AAC, or most other proprietary or restricted file formats.
