What is the best application to record and edit your audio.

I am planning to record a song to start with and then perform simple editing on it - and upload it on soundcloud. Which is the application that folks would recommend based on their personal experience.

I have good experience with Sound Forge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_Forge). But what you can also do is working with any pre-installed video or sound editor. E.g. on Windows you could use Video Maker to also only edit sounds.

Hi guys,

@GD - nice one, thanks for jumping in! You're actually the first user on our help forum to be quicker to respond then us - we want to reward that by sending you a SoundCloud t-shirt. We'll reach out to you via email to gather details 🙂

Now, back to topic: I have used Audacity for basic audio recording and editing in the past. It is freeware and available for both, Windows & Mac.

What is everyone else using?

P.S.:@all, interested in getting some swag, too? Check out our headliners program.
