Stefan you review are all idiotic. Best free audio editor there is. Keep finding new ways to use it.

Don't allow fake user agents on their site. Therefore a 1.

This is the best of the free/open source audio editors. Has a lot of features, works well, and they update it every so often. I don't know how anyone could complain about this software, if you don't like it - go buy a professional software.... It's that simple.

"I, roj, have uttered a maxim and thus it is true and applies to everything I get for free and to which I did not contribute a single line of code."

@Roj: You are a mental midget. What are you some kind of friggin' Tory or BNP member? You sure speak like one you audacious wank. If you didn't contribute one iota of code to the program or donate to support the programmer, you have no expectation of ANYTHING. You didn't PAY for anything. You got something for nothing and are complaining about it! It's akin to being given a free car but complaining because it's not a Bugatti Veyron. You have debunked NOTHING. The only thing you've debunked is that you are a waste of a sperm cell. If you don't like it because it's missing features, learn programming and write the code or code an audio editor yourself, you fap slap.

As for Audacity, it's a great free program for doing basic audio editing tasks. Throw money at the developers for their hard work. Throw rocks at FAILroj.

To those who trumpted the whole "it's FREE" rubbish as if that excuses shortcomings:

FREE is not an excuse for lack of features or usability. I and anyone who uses an application has every right to expect a certain level of ease of use or functionality given that the author of the program undertook the endeavor in the first place. In short, get a grip and stop being apologists.

Now that this point is crystal clear and the "FREE so don't complain" nonsense thoroughly debunked and consigned to the dung heap where it belongs, Audacity is a very competent beginners audio editor. I would appreciate the versatility of Goldwave's mixing and cue functions and expect to see the program evolve more towards them in the future just for the sake of ease of use.

I'd give it a FOUR and a recommendation as an excellent work in progress.

very handy.
4 stars just because of the interface is a little old and not very user friendly
but the core app is great.

Let's even out the Goldwave spammers a little. Audacity is a great program for most purposes. Nice to see an update.
