Audacity® is free, open source, cross-platform software for recording and editing your audio recordings. Audacity is available for Windows®, Mac®, GNU/Linux® and other operating systems.
While Audacity can successfully record and edit audio, it’s greatest strength is in mixing audio recordings. For the record, my preferred audio recording program is Sound Forge™ Audio Studio.
But, when it comes to mixing audio, after I’ve recorded/edited my audio tracks in Sound Forge™, I’ll import those audio files into Audacity and start to mix in my music tracks, special effects and other audio loops.
This is a free audio recording and editing piece of software that downloads from Sourceforge.net. Check it out. Download and see if you like it. You can compare it to Sony’s Sound Forge Audio Studio to see which program you prefer to use to record/edit your audio recordings.
