I've used Audacity for a long long time, everything from editing early music attempts, to podcasts, to interview audio. It's definitely not the most powerful software in the world, but for the price...

See why people like Audacity 😍

OK, It can open a couple of audio files, but it has the crappiest user interface I've ever seen for an 'Editing' app. Thumbsdown. [Edited by rikskepatat, September 30]
