Ocenaudio vs Audacity opinions
It's free and multiplatform. Also it's easy to use and has a lot of features.
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.
A great alternative to Audacity, if you don't need multi-track editing.
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.
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.
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.
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).
REAPER is a complete digital audio production application for Windows, Mac and Linux, offering a full multi-track audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing and mastering tool set.
Reaper vs Audacity opinions
Reaper, while beeing less ressource hungry (totaling to about 15mb portable/installed) has everything you need to start recording and mixing music.
The only thing 'missing' would be sound librarbies to use with MIDI, which most people order seperately for specific content.
Tenacity is an easy-to-use, privacy-friendly, FLOSS, cross-platform multi-track audio editor/recorder for Windows, macOS, Linux and other operating systems.
Tenacity vs Audacity opinions
It is a fork removing analytics
Has no downloadable build release for Windows
Tenacity appears to be a dead fork of Audacity.
A good alternative to Audacity as it is just a fork that removes any privacy concerns.
It is the audacity fork made after audacity was bought and started to have bullshit put in by a company.
This the fork of Audacity you've been probably looking for.
Spek helps to analyse your audio files by showing their spectrogram. Spek is free software available for Unix, Windows and Mac OS X.
Spek vs Audacity opinions
Audacity is an audio editor. Calling Spek an alternative to Audacity would be like calling a tire an alternative to an automobile.
This isn't an audio editor.
Not an audio track editor.
It's not an audio editor!
audacity is a full-blown audio track editor, spek is just a mere spectrum analyser
Kwave is a sound editor designed for the KDE Desktop Environment.
With Kwave you can record, play back, import and edit many sorts of audio files including multi-channel files. Kwave includes some plugins to transform audio files in several ways and presents a graphical view wit.
KWave vs Audacity opinions
It's extremely limited in functionality
Radium is a music editor with a new type of interface.
Radium vs Audacity opinions
Radium is not an audio editor but a music sequencer. Not an alternative to Audacity
This is a DAW, NOT an audio editor
It's not the same kind of application, it's not an audio editor.
Audacium is an easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. Developed by a group of volunteers as open source.
Audacium vs Audacity opinions
Another dead fork of Audacity.
Every track includes real time equalization and dynamics processing to sweeten and fine tune your mix. This is in addition to your six real time track effects, making Fairlight far more powerful than other digital audio workstation software!
Sneedacity (named after Sneed's Feed and Seed from The Simpsons episode, "E-I-E-I-D'oh") is a free (libre), open source, and privacy-respecting audio recording and editing suite forked from Audacity.
Sneedacity vs Audacity opinions
Another dead fork of Audacity.
