Having the right software to record and edit audio is a key thing mainly for professional people like music producers among others who may need such an application.

This software can also be used to capture vocals for the purpose of producing music thus with components like a microphone an instrumental and the software and a proper studio set up the music producers and artist can make music. Actually a lot of music producers in the world use this tool to make quality music for commercial purposes. The application features audio tools where users can easily cut, paste or copy recordings.

The Most Suitable Sound-Editor for Making Your Own Soundtracks in Windows

By Maria Bernabe

On Tuesday, June 3, 2014

I’ve continued using this cool software in one form, or another since 2000. The current and earlier version 2.1 is the completion of years of development and is reliable. Simple to manage the platform, essentially if the users recognize how to run a mixer and recorder, the there would no difficulty working with the Cool Edit Pro mixer and recorder. If I intend to clean up different tracks or record and mix a song, Cool Edit does the job right.

This software is rather small. It runs pretty smoothly on any computers. I've only had a problem on a couple of times, which I doubt is more due to Windows problems. I operate Cool Edit Pro 2.1 on a Pentium 3 Windows XP Service Pack 2. Also, it is easy for me to record 10 tracks at a time with my M-Audio Delta 1010 LT sound card.

The only thing I need to have this software is that it would be better if there is a MIDI support and framework for saving to MIDI Time Code (MTC). I also wish the video assimilation would be better on this program, but I think that’s more a restriction from when the time this software was made.

It can clean up audio tracks. It’s very simple to discard hiss, and with the noise reduction features, it easily detects problem sound that was already recorded as quiet and erase those frequencies.

Pros

  • Can record more than 20 file formats
  • Can achieve 5.1 surround mixes

Cons

  • Some effects could sound much better

The Most Popular Digital Audio Editor That You Must Have

By Isay Almenanza

On Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Cool Edit Pro is a digital audio recorder and workstation from Adobe System. It is widely used in the broadcasting industry. This program became the most popular digital audio editor in the Windows community maybe because it has a nice interface that is easy to handle and also it has many audio effects that you can use for editing your music tracks.

Cool Edit Pro also became a multi track recorder, which some users need. The only downside of this program is you cannot mix in stereo and 5.1 surround formats. Version 2.1, however, offers 45 DSP effects and it can read and write more than 20 file formats, including MP3 decode and encode.

Overall, this program is a nice stereo editor and multi track recording tool. It is also good for recording real instruments by overdubbing. I think, it is the digital audio software that you have been waiting for.

Pros

  • It has many audio effects
  • Compatible with a lot of formats

Cons

  • No support for control surfaces
