Audacity for Windows is the most powerful and popular audio editing tool. Until 2010, Audacity for Windows registered more than 20 million downloads and it was written in no less than 30 different languages. The truly amazing part is that Audacity for Windows is completely free.
Audacity became famous because, although it is a free software, its complexity and efficiency matches and even surpasses many cost based software in its class. It does that while keeping a friendly and easy-to-use interface, a simple sound editing system and a comprehensive Help section.
Basically, using Audacity, the user can virtually change every little setting and feature of an audio file. On top of that, Audacity comes with a large collection of sound effects like amplify, bass boost, compressor, echo, fade in, fade out, FFT filter, normalize, phase, repeat, reverse, noise removal and many more.
The user can easily import sound files (Audacity supports almost every sound files format) and start to modify the very core of these files by removing song sections and replacing them with other fragments (from different files), reversing the entire song, analyze and modify the plot spectrum, edit ID3 tags, generate silence, white noise or a different tone, duplicate song sections and so on.
