Audacity 3.0.0

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Ocenaudio is a cross-platform, easy to use, fast and functional audio editor.

    Audacity is a great project and I’m very glad it exists.

    Personally I only need pretty basic wave editing and am happy with OcenAudio (https://ocenaudio.com - free but closed source), it’s the closest thing I’ve found to Cool Edit 2000 (which I still think is the best wave editor ever!) and has quite a nice UI.

  2. Shotcut is a free, open source, cross-platform, non-linear video editor.

    I've found Shotcut[1] to be pretty good. It's not quite professional, but not at all hard to learn as an amateur. It is also open source, and works on Windows, Linux and macOS.

  3. Free and open-source, full-featured video editor.

    While I'm not using linux it really is amazing how far FOSS can take you. I haven't used openshot but can definitely vouch for kdenlive[0]
