Best Audio Editing Software

    Audio editing software allows users to edit and generate audio files. These tools are used by audio editors and engineers to mix or delete audio sections, edit and rearrange audio regions, and record and generate new audio components. Audio editing programs may also offer effects for manipulating the sound of audio files in a variety of ways. Audio editing software generally complies with a variety of file types including MP3s, WAVE, Windows Media, and MPEG-4. Audio editing software is commonly used by audio engineers and music producers (i.e. mixers, editors, sound designers) for use in music, films, and television shows, often in conjunction with video editing software and the video production team. For musicians who are audio editing beginners, there are also many free music making software solutions for audio editing.

    To qualify for inclusion in the Audio Editing category, a product must:

    Allow users to upload and/or record audio files
    Provide tools for clipping, arranging, and manipulating audio
    Save and export completed files in one or more file types
