Audacity, the open source audio editor

Audacity is a complete audio editing suite which gives you the option to record sounds using any input source, perform multitrack recordings (ideal for recording separate instruments and bringing them together later), manage up to 16 audio channels at a time, or alter tracks with the variety of volume options. You can also import and export WAV, AIFF, AU, MPEG and MP3 files.

The range of Audacity’s tools is enormous, bearing in mind that we’re talking about an open code program here. Of course, there are pros and cons; it’s a program with massive potential with can be explored via its plug-ins, but it’s hard to achieve a high-quality result without tampering with some of the default settings. The good thing is that it’s pretty simple to use, and what’s more it’s free.

The best editor for those everyday jobs

With Audacity you can cut, copy, paste, and delete whatever you want; in this way you can get rid of background noise, play around with frequencies and balance, vary the quality of the sound, apply effects and much more.
Even though it’s not as complete a program as Cubase or Pro Tools, Audacity has what you need to carry out the most common editing functions. Of course, the quality can change depending what you use to record the sound, but that’s got nothing to do with to the program itself; Audacity does its job with speed and precision.
