Wavosaur Free Audio Editor (BMZ Award 2008)




It's a shame BMZ did not speak about Wavosaur before. If you are not very confortable with Audacity and would prefer a cool audio editor which looks like and works like sony soundforge (but for free), have a look and try Wavosaur. It's a freeware and it's very light as well!
