Sound edit software

Anyone know of any good sound edit software for linux?
Or know any windows program that can be run through wine?

Need to edit some sounds before they go into a presentation

I never needed a sound editor, but take a look in here:

They've got some nice stuff in here

Good luck!

Have installed Audacity, but it wont knotice the mic.
Line in /dev/dsp
line out /dev/dsp

The mic works, only incoming channel that is active. If I talk into the mic I can here it in the speaker.
krec won't record from the mic either, could it be a arts-error?
Or just some wrongful setting?

Pleased for any help

I have tried Audacity, I can't change any preferences so it appears fairly useless.
I need to have 'playback other tracks while recording new' set', and all I can get is this error telling me that the play back device is invalid, even tho the tracks play back.

Maybe take a look at Ardour . Pretty close to QBase and CakeWalk. Probably as good as it gets for Linux.
