Comments about Audacity as a Alternative to Sound Forge
It has so many things that Soundforge has, it has excellent output quality and many tools3
Very powerful, like Sound Forge, but its interface is quite messy and not user-friendly10
Excellent open source audio editor with 20+ years development history. The interface may look a bit primitive, but it is both easy to use and very powerful. The "warning" about spyware is nonsense.0

I've recorded many CDs with Audacity and it's so far the best audio editor for me so far3

Sound Forge is audio editor and FL studio is audio workstation10
While FL Studio is a DAW, it provides everything needed for multi-track editing, with general purpose arrangement of audio tracks through its sequencer and fine-tuned editing through Edison, its full featured editor. FL includes VST support as well, but already has advanced modules for EQ, compression and visualization, not to mention Edison's world class noise reduction. The workflow is clearly different from Sound Forge, but it's definitely capable.0
