Hmm. I find it hard to compare Audacity - which is more for post-production and effects, for any sound file - with the likes of Rosegarden and especially Hydrogen. Like so many of these polls, it's a case of different tools for different jobs. But I recognise the impossibility of having a separate poll for every single use case! :) And so I'm voting for Audacity.

If LAME, an MP3 encoder, is in the list, then you should include OGG and FLAC, too.

Audacity for me.

I am voting for Audacity because it has similar features to those in the Windows program Soundforge.

Odd, I voted for it because it has identical features to the windows program Audacity! :)

And HI from Randburg!

Audactiy. It does everything that Protools does and is open source. I like to record at studios that use Audacity instead of Protools too.

Why is LAME in the list? That's kinda like listing ffmpeg isn't it?

SecretCode hi from a wet and rainy Boksburg. I also loaded Audacity in Windows. It looks very similar to the Linux version.
Works more or less the same.

Regards

Cross-platform software is the thing, no doubt about it.

I have the audacity to vote!

Couldn't agree more.
This is why I'm not voting in this category.

Audacity for me. It was a marvellous tool when I took on the onerous task of ripping my considerable collection of vinyl.

xev 01-19-2012 08:55 AM

Audacity sure for me.

Audacity
 
Audacity is always on my list of first things to install on a new installation.

Seriously? Ardour is the way to go. But, if audacity was non-destructive I would totally go for it.
