    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.

    It has the most usual functionalities of sound forge (cut/select/normalize/) and supports VST effects. Last but not least, its interface is amazingly neat and efficient!
