    Audio Editing With Mac, What App?
    Hi

    I'm looking to manipulate some backing tracks that i sing to, basically to level and EQ nothing else. When with windows i used Nero, now being on a Mac I'm not sure what app to use? any suggestions.

    Specs:

    audacity or garageband can do that, and they are both free.

    Audacity should be fine for that, I happen to like Amadeus Pro a lot better but it costs a reasonable amount ($40). There's also Fission from the fine folks at Rogue Amoeba ($32) that saves losslessly.

    I don't think that Garage Band is free. It's part of the iLife suite. I did get it for free when I bought my 08' MacBook Pro, but I can't remember why there's a difference.

    Not a big fan of Audacity. It feels clunky and slow to perform. But in a pinch it can be alright, especially given its price (free).

    Garageband is "free" because it's included on every Mac made. It may not be the latest version, depending on when one gets one's Mac or if one upgrades, but everyone gets at least some version of Garageband.

    Agree with you 100% on Audacity.

    well, i was just assuming that the person had it. Audacity doesn't like my computer but i remember it being good on my old PC.
