Hi,

I have been wondering which audio editor for the mac should I get. I deal mostly with videos and will sometimes need a good audio editor.

The tasks I might need the audio editor to do

- Fix cracks in the audio tracks
- Simple and effective interface for splitting and moving audio segments around
- Able to easily adjust the start and end of audio tracks, so I can sync up the timeline of audio and video tracks together
- Filter out certain noises
- Amply certain sounds
- Good converting/exporting capability to convert audio tracks from one format to another
- And pretty much anything else that might come up during video production and editing

I don't record or remux music. I am looking for a simple and effective interface if possible. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks,

Vidhunter

Have you tried Audacity? It's a free, open source audio editor that is fairly easy to use - and you can't beat the price.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Yeah. I tried Audacity already. I didn't like it that much. It was a little buggy, and the interface wasn't that refined. So far, I have been using Sound Studios, Amadeus Pro, and Fission to decide which is better. I just wondered if there is an even better audio editing tool. I thought of trying Logic Studios, but it seems to be more suitable for music production and such.
