    Hey :)

    In the past, a few of us have discussed sound editing software, and today I just found a complete doozy !! Freeware, unlimited, and can edit and convert a multitude of formats, and rip from and burn to disk as well. This thing is just an utter gem - and so easy to use right from the start.

    WavePad from NCH SwiftSound.

    Nice find! I'm often asked about recording software - I'll add this one to the list.

    A friend of mine raves over Audacity! I really must give it a go.

    This is turning out more productive than I thought. OK, I have now downloaded Audacity and having used WavePad for a good while earlier today, I will rerun the same project and report back. Nice one, d.

    Audacity has the advantage that even a total idiot can use it. I'm not a sound junky (I love music, but I've never come at it from a techy perspective) and time and again I've found sound editing applications beyond me as they are too complicated.

    Well, I just spent half an hour on the same project with Audacity, and while there may be more features deeper in, I have to say that I find WavePad easier to work with, for example being able to manually wind back and forward through a track using cursor keys. Maybe familiarity, I don't know, but I had most of what I wanted to do done by this time and I don't even know where to start with Audacity - switched back already . :)

    Plus WavePad has prettier colours too :tongue

    Gav, see my comment about idiots :tongue.

    Just kidding, :D maybe I'll give WavePad a go next time I need to do some sound editing.

    Damn - I thought I had worded my reply to compliment your comments on being idiot-proof, and that WavePad was even simpler. Seems I just landed myself in it !! :rolleyes:
