Audio Editing Software Benefits
The top eight programs in our review ranked quite close to each other and are within a similar price range; however, they all support different formats, editing tools and recording/ burning abilities.
There are several factors to consider when looking for suitable applications. Before choosing a program, determine what you want to do with the software. Are you interested in working with streaming audio, making arrangements for your iPod or MP3 player, restoring sound files, forensics, creating audio for your website or burning a CD of your band's music?
There are also a variety of editing tools, effects and filters available. If you are a beginner, you may want to look for a product that includes a large number of preset effects and filters. Alternately, if you already know how to use this kind of software and know how to make adjustments on your own, you may want a program that supports a high level of manipulation through a 10-band equalizer, a mixer or various processors.
Below are the criteria TopTenREVIEWS used to evaluate each application:
All good programs contain play, record, cut, copy, paste and so on; this criterion looks beyond the essential editing tools to include tools such as equalizers, processors, mixers, preset effects, filters and analyzing tools like the waveform or spectrogram.
The best programs will capture audio from files, the sound card or from downloaded CDs as well as from outside sources such as a line-in from a stereo, MIDI device or microphone. As a bonus, it is also helpful if the product includes burning software so that you can use your CD or DVD burner to save edited files. To be the most compatible, the product must be able to work with and convert many file formats, like the various WAV file types, Windows Media Audio (WMA), AIFF (used by Apple) and MP3 files.
