Audio Editing Software

Audio Editing Software: Computer software designed for capturing and manipulating digital audio. This can involve editing for production, digital signal processing of the audio recording, saving the file in a different format, converting from stereo to mono, compressing a signal, changing the sample rate or bit depth of the data file. Stereo editing software can only handle 2-channels of audio whereas multi-track software can handle multiple channels. Popular editors include:

  • Sound Forge (Windows)
  • Peak (Mac)
  • Audacity
  • WaveLab
  • ProTools LE

Digital audio editors can be both destructive and non-destructive. [ Audio Glossary ]
