"Audacity ROCKS!"

April 14, 2009  |  By smokeybear1960

 |  Version: Audacity 1.3.6 beta

Pros

Outstanding mp3 processor. Have used with absolute satisfaction for years.

Cons

None, unless you're dumb enough to listen to that John Holt Lololo... jackass.

Summary

To me, the best function is the EQ programming feature. The other edit functions work well. Maybe too well. Be cautious using the amplify function. Too much amplification and your song ends up sounding like an old man taking a crap. Using EQ is much easier to make the music come out exactly the way you want it to sound. Audacity ROCKS!

"Good Beginning Audio Editor"

March 26, 2009  |  By keyesdt

 |  Version: Audacity 1.3.6 beta

Pros

For a novice like myself this is a good editor. I have been able to figure out how to clip the ends or even portions of a track that I want.

Cons

Required an additional download of LAME to save to an mp3 track from WAV or other formats. A bit difficult to understand and figure out but do-able. Not much in the way of help

Summary

For an experienced audio editor or someone that wants to delve deeply into doing so it would probably be better to shell out some bucks for what you want/need. But for a novice or for simple editing this is a good program. What do you want for free?!

Pros

Looked like it had a lot of useful features for recovering good music from old records.
