Ask Teh Intarwebs

I need some audio editing software. I'd like for it to be able to splice together tracks and slow down or speed up recordings. I can go for either Mac or Windows, but Windows would be more convenient since that's where the music is already stored. What do you recommend? Why?

  • Amadeus II is free for the mac and it'll do what you want. Adobe Soundbooth isn't free and is probably overkill, but'll certainly do the job, as would Garageband. I don't know about the PC side but I'm sure there's good stuff.

    The fact that it's already on the PC shouldn't matter. Sound files are very, very cross-platform nowadays, unless it has DRM on it.

  • Audacity
    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    It's free. Available for both Windows and Mac (and Linux). Some people use it at KPFA to produce things. It can be powerful, but it is also pretty simple to speed things up or slow them down.
    You should check it out.

  • Oh yeah, what Chris said. Audacity is great.
