Alternatives to Audacity for Linux with any license

  • Ocenaudio

    Ocenaudio is a cross-platform, easy to use, fast and functional audio editor. It is the ideal software for people who need to edit and analyze audio files without complications. ocenaudio also has powerful features that will please more advanced users. This software is based on Ocen Framework, a powerful library developed to simplify and standardize the development of audio manipulation and analysis applications across multiple platforms.

    • I needed to do spectral analysis of an audio file, but audacity didn't support hidpi. Ocenaudio does, and overall it is capable and pleasing to use. Guest • Nov 2019 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Ocenaudio has all the editing capabilities of Audacity but wrapped in a much more streamlined, modern and intuitive interface. It's not open-source, but it's free, doesn't have ads, is also cross-platform and runs fast at native speed. UgotstaFeb 2020 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • As opposed to Audacity's mess of a ui this is quite nice. Has all the effects I needed. Looks good even in a KDE environment. Cknight70Mar 2018 • 6 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's free and multiplatform. Also it's easy to use and has a lot of features. EliasNSJan 2018 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Easy to use and stable. Auto noise reduction is an excellent feature not available in Audacity. But an equally missed feature is "Truncate Silence" that is found in Audacity. srinath1234May 2018 • 3 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Perfect for MAC users! Audacity is a WIN program adapted for mac, but is still to "win 98 style". I had troubles with the mic in audacity. Oceanaudio is very easy to use, the scrolling with the magic mouse works perfectly, it saves in so many audio formats (without putting the extension at the end, like in audacity). yesdinoFeb 2018 • 1 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
