Hi folks, I am looking for a basic freeware audio file editor for Snow Leopard.
I used EasyWMA to convert the wma files from my Olympus recorder to mp3.
But when I open the file in Audacity it crashes.
Is there anything else out there? All I really have to do is increase the volume and maybe a bit of background noise cleanup which Audacity can do pretty easily.

Code:
$ exiftool VN520110.mp3 
ExifTool Version Number         : 8.19
File Name                       : VN520110.mp3
Directory                       : .
File Size                       : 588 kB

and the wma file
