What audio software do you use for creating music or editing sounds?
As for myself, I learned on SoundForge / Vegas by Sony (once upon a time created by Sonic foundry), and I still have a particular love for these software. I also like Cubase Sx3 combined with Reason... pretty awesome as well!
WAV-MP3/Wave editing: Renoise/Audacity
I mainly use Audacity and have very little experience with anything else.
Audacity would be the most common one for me. I prefer SoundStudio if I can find it.
Soundtrack Pro is nice, Logic is great. All depending exactly what level of audio editing you're doing.
And if you're talking about editing video at the same time, well that's an entirely different question.
For years I have used one version or another of Fruity Loops. I currently use FL9 Producers Edition. With most the bells and whistles installed. Easy to use and more powerful than I first thought. I don't do much composing these days. But I did do a song the other day out of the blue.
I also use guitar pro tab software. I can put stuff I tab out on the guitar into it and export it to MIDI for FL9. That way I can experiment with how a melody sounds with differant insterments. Pluss I can use it to break down songs I like and figure out the style.
I like guitartracks from Cakewalk, it's simple and does a decent job for beginner software.
I feel comfortable using Audacity..
Has anyone here tried using AVS Audio Editor?
I love using audacity, sinc eyou can use multiple tracks in it.
I've tried my hand at fruity loops, and Ikind of get lost in it, but now trying out Linux Multimedia Studio, which works in windows also, and seems quite good.
Cooledit is alsoa good software, but I prefer audacity.
I guess audacity is a nice place to start when it comes to audio editing
Fl Studio (generally for generating some electronic stuff) and sound forge for editing.
