    What kind of software do I need for sound?


    Hello...I'm new to sound. I wanted some PC software that can cut sound files and loop sound files. What is a good basic sound processing software to get?

    (easy to use)

    Thanks

    Audacity is free but I don't like its handling. Especially for multitracking...

    Reaper would be a cheap alternative.

    I can recommend Samplitude, SoundForge and Audition.

    I'm a sporadic user(maybe 10-20 days a year) of Audacity so I'm not in the market for alternatives, but your link has given me an excellent background and understanding of the programs I often see mentioned on freesound.
    For my first year on freesound I didn't appreciate there was a difference between an Audio editor and a DAW but after I made an ignorant post a kind freesounder politely added to my education.

    Another (heart) to the value of the freesound community beyond just samples.

    Ardour is a free digital audio workstation. I've used it before and it seems alright for a freeware. You can do so much more on it than just an editing program like "audacity" as others have recommended. The main one is multi-tracking functionality (layering many audio channels together to make a composite).
