Audio Editing

h1This is about audio editing. So, far I have been editing pictures and creating videos and I must say that’s my forte however, as far as audio editing is concerned I have never tried my hands on in this before. Thanks to audio editing Flipped Lecture I learned something new. Though I am an amateur in this field but I am glad that I opened my doors to learn something new.

Audio editing is an amusing experience to record and edit music. I remember when I was young I used to record music but I never edited it apart from some song sequences for dance at a family function. There are some free software’s, which helps in editing audio tracks, such as Audacity, or Garageband (this is exclusive for Mac), Audio tool that is similar to Garageband it lets you create complex audio arrangements with some effects, Tunekitten Audio editor which is lightweight audio app and provide basic effect features however you cannot directly record, Reaper is another compact workstation through which you can record, edit, mix and put layers, etc. This is compatible with all the operating systems but you can use editor with Internet and it does have some cost involve post trial period is over.

Out of all the audio editors I liked Audacity, as it is excellent software for audio recording, editing, mixing and compatible with Linux, windows and Mac OS.

I would suggest before you initiate your recording project set Audacity preferences in the dialog box as this will help in ensuring the playback options are correctly set. Ideally set 44100hz and 16-bit as your sample format which is a standard frequency for CD and broadcast, I gathered this information while browsing some of the tutorials, which I believe is quite helpful tip. Audacity is very simple software to use and not at all complicated. The best thing about Audacity is it lets you record with multi track frameworks. All the tools are placed at the top, which makes it user friendly as well.


Oh I must tell you, Audacity comes with automatic crash recovery as well, so you can be assured you will never lose your work.

I have not created any tutorial nor I am showing what I experimented with Audacity rather I am providing you with some tutorial links so that you can experiment by your self and enjoy the art of audio editing. But, if you would like to try your hands on Garageband I have given link and for rest ‘GOOGLE’ :D
