Editing Audio

Last updated on 3/31/2016

The "Editor" or "Recorder" module displays files as waveforms (graphical representations of audio files), and gives you simple audio editing tools to do common editing tasks quickly and easily. Most audio editing involves simple cut-copy-paste edits, adding fade-ins or fade-outs, and adjusting volume. However, the Editor/Recorder module also contains numerous professional-level editing tools and commands that are there if you need them. You can use plug-in audio effects, convert bit depths and sample rates, normalize, remove DC offset, and more.
