I may have mentioned in the past that I use Audacity to edit my audio files for podcasts and class recordings. Forgive me if you’ve read this before. Since I use this software every week, I’m continually reminded how easy it is to use and the fact that it’s free is even better! Definitely, this belongs in the category of 101 Low and No Cost Marketing Tools.
Audacity is a free, easy-to-use audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems. You can use Audacity to:
- Record live audio.
- Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs.
- Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and WAV sound files.
- Cut, copy, splice, and mix sounds together.
- Change the speed or pitch of a recording.
- And more! See the complete list of features.
I am not a tech wiz, though I can usually figure out software works. Over the last few months, I’ve learned how to use this software to edit recordings, insert intro music, add audio to a recording, set up the mp3 tags, make the audio better when it’s too quiet and few other things.
If you’re going to get into podcasting or delivering audio to your customers, blog readers and prospects, you can save a lot of money by learning how to use this software.
