Audacity

Audacity for Windows 7

Audacity is a free audio editor that supports Windows, Linux, and Mac. It is good for performing basic audio editing and formatting in an instinctive way that beginners can easily understand.

Due to various plug-in supports, Audacity provides different effects like bass boost, normalize, wahwah, auto duck, pitch and tempo changes, echo, room reverb, and even tremolo. This application also provides tools for analyzing the contrast, clipping, or even the silence in a sound file. Audacity can be used to create an intro, use sound effects, bring out music beds, and convert a finished project into an MP3 file.

Audacity is a strong and free option for those people who are looking for a way to record an audio out of the web. The only downside of this audio editing app is probably its inability to be used for a complex music production. It can only do basic audio editing and formatting tasks.
