    Very powerful, like Sound Forge, but its interface is quite messy and not user-friendly

    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.

    FL Studio vs Sound Forge opinions

    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.

    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!
