a good music recording tool


does anybody now a good music enhancing/recording tool in the style of soundforge and others?

it also has to be an easy to use because i'm to lazy to learn alsa like programs (i haven't tried fully ... i just watched at alsa and said to myself ... man this is gonna take time)


ps: how do u turn it off that redhat 9 does updatedb everyday?

Cool

Greetings!


I don't know soundforge but I was using CoolEdit before I changed to linux. On my quest for a similar capable program I came upon Audacity. Its latest version 1.2.0-pre1 fits my needs quite well, you'll find that it can handle multitrack recording and mixing, filters like equalization, normalization and amplification as well as effects like chorus and delay. The latest version also has filters to alter pitch/tempo. As for audio formats, I haven't tried many but you can at least import and export wave (of course ), vorbis (has to be specified to ./configure before compiling) and mp3 (using the lame libraries).

Try it, I'm quite sure you won't regret it!


Good luck!

I have some troubles ...i'm trying the redhat rpm but i have a higher libogg and libvorbis version but it wants libogg-1.0rc3-1.i386.rpm and libvorbis-1.0rc3-1.i386.rpm
so I guess I need to downgrade ... but then probably some stuff won't work anymore I guess what solution???

Strange thing that it wants an older version than the one you have installed..! If I were you, I'd rather not downgrade. Try downloading the latest source here and compiling it yourself. If for some reason that won't work for you, try the latest stable version. However I really suggest you try to get the beta version working as it has some new features and for me it's not at all unstable.

If you have trouble compiling, do a ./configure --help to see what options you can give to the configure program and read the README and INSTALL files. If you are still having trouble then, I'll be glad to try and assist you. Make sure to post any errors you are getting in that case!


Good luck!

i'm gonna try rezound as suggested above.

I eventually got the beta version working but it was waaaay to unstable ... everytime when I tried to make some changes to a file bigger than approx. 30-50 sec audacity shut down.
