Not all audio files that we get our hands on are in the format and condition that we want, so it's very useful to have an audio editor installed, that, as well as allowing us crop to or normalize files, can be used to apply effects, adjust the stereo channels or modify the dynamics.
Pack of tools to edit audio
Acoustica is an editor prepared to record and modify audio files in several formats (WAV, MP3, OGG, AIFF, AU and WMA). It has various real-time wave analyzers, support for VST and DirectX plug-ins, and a native effects collection, as well as a dithering processor and a noise eliminator.
The program's interface is very similar to that of Sony Sound Forge, so the users that have used this editor shouldn't have any problems when it comes to using Acoustica to perform these tasks.
If you want a practical editor, that is compatible with the majority of standards, and that also offers good audio analysis and restoration tools, Acoustica is a good alternative to take into account.
