"So pleased and surprised with your Free Audio Editor! It helps me record and edit various audio files. I can also burn music files to CD disc to enjoy in my disc player. Its interface is compact, slick and clear without being daunting to the new user. The ease of use is a great bonus."

Sheridan Gasser,

"I'm not a professional musician, but I do use the program to make music for slideshows on the internet. Once I created my first sound file, I was amazed with the many things that I can do with it alone. Unbelievably, I can also download and convert YouTube videos with this audio editor."
